As president and chief executive officer of Malouf, Sam Malouf leads and motivates a team of more than 200 employees and makes strategic decisions for the company.
What started as a personal shopping expedition to buy really good sheets became a multi-brand provider of bedding and sleep accessories. In trying to upgrade their bedding during the college years, Sam and his wife Kacie discovered an enormous markup on high-end sheets. The couple started the business in their two-bedroom apartment, and research, persistence and a knack for numbers soon built a company with products on the shelves of major retailers across the country.
Sam graduated from Utah State University in Logan, Utah where he earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing and accounting along with a Master’s in Accounting. When he was offered a job with an accounting firm out of college, he decided to go all-in with the bedding business and has spent his entire career building his company.
His dedication to community and family has led to his involvement with and support of charitable organizations, including Citizens Against Physical and Sexual Abuse (CAPSA), The Family Place, Sleep in Heavenly Peace and Operation Underground Railroad. Because he wanted his success to help and empower others, he started and chairs the Malouf Foundation, a non-profit organization that brings comfort to community members by helping them fulfill basic needs during difficult times. Most recently, the foundation embarked on a campaign to unite industry partners against human trafficking.
Family is important, and Sam built that idea as a cornerstone of his business. When he is not working, Sam loves to spend time with his wife and their five children. He would like to spend his free time riding motorcycles and gardening, but spends most of his weekends pushing kids on swings and attending soccer games.
