Claus Pummer was born in Germany where he trained as a Master Cabinetmaker. Living and working in Switzerland where he earned a Master’s Degree in Furniture Design and Manufacturing, he perfected his skills. An entrepreneur at heart, he started his own woodworking shop in Germany then relocated to Canada where he immigrated in 1998. Naturally, his experience in designing and building beds as well as his personal interest in living a healthy lifestyle led him to the best brand out there, SAMINA. As a certified sleep coach, he studied under a world renown sleep expert through the Austrian Institute for Sleep Psychology. For nearly 20 years he has worked with SAMINA and is currently the Managing Director, SAMINA North America. A healthy sleep expert, he’s been enjoying his nightly sleep with the SAMINA Sleep System for many years and, especially from his travels and many nights in inferior beds can appreciate how superior his sleep and, importantly, how much more energized he is during his wakeful hours when he’s slept the night before with SAMINA.
Denise Pummer supports the marketing efforts and customer care including affiliate relations for the US operations. Her background as a human resource executive who managed employee benefits plan gives her unique insight into the deteriorating health of Americans and how sleep deprived the average American employee is. With an expanding group of affiliate partners including doctors in the holistic healing community who understand the benefits only sleep can give their patients, she is proud to be part of a growing community of people seeking healthy lifestyles and looking for healthier alternatives to standard conventional practices. The mission to educate people on the importance of sleep, what they sleep on and how they sleep resonates with her as an organic mattress is not just a luxury, it is truly a requirement to live a healthy life. They continue to showcase SAMINA at trade shows, conferences and medical workshops all over the country and ship throughout the US, Canada and worldwide in the English-speaking markets (Australia, New Zealand, the UK). Before sleeping in SAMINA, she thought she was allergic to morning something she still experiences when traveling but she gratefully no longer sneezes for hours after awaking when she’s had a good night’s sleep in SAMINA.
