SEATTLE-Pacific Coast Feather has appointed Joe Crawford to succeed the retiring Eric Moen as president and CEO.

Crawford, senior vice president of finance and procurement, will assume his new post at the end of this month. He joined Pacific Coast Feather in 1992, was promoted to vice president of feather and down operations in 1996, and was named to his current position in 2001. He also serves as marketing chair of the American Down and Feather Council.

Moen’s retirement will end a 23-year career with Pacific Coast Feather. Joining the firm in 1989, he was named senior vice president and chief financial officer in 1991. He was promoted to executive vice president in 2000, and became president and CEO in 2003.

Nick Hanauer, Pacific Coast Feather co-chairman, praised Moen for his leadership, commitment and insights. “During his tenure as CEO, he has guided the company through some of the most difficult times for both the industry and the U.S. economy, while advancing (the company’s) status as the global leader in utility bedding,” Hanauer said.
