ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ergotron, Inc., a leading manufacturer of digital display mounts and furniture solutions, today announced the promotion of Betsey Banker to Vertical Marketing Manager, Wellness. This position will further support the mission of Ergotron's JustStand® Wellness Uprising: to raise awareness of the dangers of prolonged sitting and draw attention to the simple remedy of standing and moving more throughout one's day, as well as addressing the growing impact of sedentary behavior on the global workforce. Banker's appointment builds upon the company's foundation in worker comfort and ergonomics, expanding into overall health and wellness.
Banker has received certifications from the National Wellness Institute and is a Certified Worksite Wellness Program Manager (CWWPM) and Certified Worksite Wellness Specialist (CWWS).

Banker will apply science and wellness training to each of these key areas, ultimately helping customers and organizations understand and successfully adopt sit-stand as a part of their culture and wellness programming.
"Ergotron has a history of supporting employee comfort, ergonomics and productivity, but that mission has grown in the past five years to include a broader scope of worker wellbeing," said Daneen Kiger, vice president of marketing at Ergotron. "Betsey's knowledge and understanding of the metabolic, musculoskeletal and mental impacts of using sit-stand workstations, in addition to her training as a corporate programs manager, allows us to deliver wellness programming that will be an agent of change."
