IRVINE, CA—July 27, 2005—Westlife Distribution U.S.A. LLC, is pleased to announce the addition of Jeff Clark as the Pacific Northwest sales rep for 686.

“I am excited to have Jeff come aboard with 686,” says Jono Zacharias, vice president of sales for Westlife Distribution, ”Jeff is a true professional, and has proven himself time and time again to get the job done for the companies he represents. I know our Pacific Northwest customers will be receiving the attention and service from Jeff that would be expected out of a 686 sales rep."

Jeff began his career as the chief mechanic for Suzuki, working in the pits of the motocross and supercross world when he was approached by Oakley to set up their Northwest motorcycle division.  After establishing himself in sales in the area, Jeff began steadily picking up brands, from footwear to sunglasses and watches, significantly growing the territory of all brands he represented.  His 686 territory will include all parts of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska.
 
“I’m the type of sales rep that doesn’t just pick up lines.” says Jeff, “I am thoughtful about who I work with and how our styles mesh.  When I got the call from 686, I was extremely excited, because I consider them an organized and detailed company, which is symmetrical with how I operate.  They have a plan in place and stick to it, making them a big industry player now and for years to come.”

Jeff currently resides in Beaverton, Oregon with his wife and two sons.  To contact Jeff, please call (503) 706-1775 or e-mail jeffclark9@juno.com.  You can also visit Jeff’s sales site, www.westcoastsales.biz.
