West & Creatures Adds 2 More to Staff

West Surfing and Creatures of Leisure would like to welcome Justin Ruttkay and Auna Irvine! 

October 8, 2004 (Oceanside, Ca.)  Justin and Auna’s responsibilities will consist of working with accounts as customer service representatives, welcoming and directing all visitors and callers, and general sales and marketing duties. 

Many of you know Justin already, as he has done work for us in the past working with Mad Media and also representing West and Creatures at ASR.  We are excited to welcome him as a full time employee.  Justin’s experience includes outside sales for United Clothing, team management and customer service for a major specialty retail shop in Central Cal and freelance writer for Transworld.  In addition, he is a talented surfer who regularly competes in local contests.

Auna brings with her an extensive knowledge of the fashion, merchandising and sales world.  As a showroom director for multiple lines in LA, she learned to juggle numerous buyers in an intense market week environment where customer service was key.  Merchandising for Guess and Armani on Rodeo Drive, Auna brings to West a keen eye and an aptitude for organization.
