The author reflects on the prevalence of the resignation of top executives in various bedding companies in the U.S. in October 2006. He cited the resignations of two of the most important executives in the industry, Restonic Corp. President Carlene Evenson Peterson and Larry McKay, president of Comfort Solutions, as evidenced of the situation. In his view, this situation can go on for many years with the same group of leaders on board, which he described as a bedding carousel.
