Mervin Mfg. is excited to announce the addition of Maxx von Marbod as Sales Director for North America and APAC. Maxx is a life-long Northwest based snowboarder, surfer, board collector, designer and friend to all he meets. As a snowboarder, he's seen it all from a frothy grom battling it out in Northwest Series to a seasoned ripper playing a pivotal role at major brands across the industry. Throughout his 20+ year board sports tour of duty, Maxx has managed to stay in love with the activities that help define him; riding boards with good friends on a weekly basis. His love for shred has kept Maxx closely connected to the Mervin Mfg. crew often helping to tweak new products through his valuable R & D feedback only a double decade veteran could provide.

“We are excited to have someone with Maxx’s knowledge of our brands and experience with key retailers joining the Mervin team. His market, brand, business and product expertise will continue to help connect Mervin’s exciting brands with retail partners Maxx-imizing new opportunities for all.“ – Anthony De Rocco CEO Mervin Mfg

Maxx is a student of snowboard culture who likes to pull an old Lynn off the wall and crank some grassers, but he’s also professor of the game who has experienced the industry from every side of the dice. As an adamant snowboard collector he’s known to scour both internet and swap meet for a chance at a rare Mervin board. It’s in part this dedication to the hunt that has landed him right where he belongs, after all these years, at his new home that’s always been his home, Mervin Mfg.

“Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I’ve always held a special place in my heart for these brands. From their world-class riders, to their environMentally conscious factory, it’s clear that Mervin is a company filled with humans dedicated to innovation and a culture of fun. I’m proud to join the crew here and look forward to being a part of their success for years to come!” - Maxx von Marbod
