Access Distribution Adds Two Sales & Marketing Managers to Team: Sherryl Lynn and Ronnie Tambourine

Nevada City, CA - Access Distribution is pleased to announce the addition of Sherryl Lynn as the new National Sales and Marketing Manager for MissionSix and Monix outerwear, as well as, Ronnie Tambourine as the National Sales and Marketing Manager for the Millennium Three (M3), Silence and Avalanche programs.
 
Sherryl Lynn is the new Sales and Marketing Manager for MissionSix and Monix Outerwear and has a long history in the action sports industry, including 10 years as a sales representative in Southern California for Airwalk, Swag, Prom and Vans just to name a few.  She was also the Marketing Manager for Scott USA snowboards, for which she happily moved to Sun Valley, Idaho, where one of the many perks was snowboarding on her lunch hour. After a few years with Scott, Sherryl went back on the road but this time in the Northwest territory for DC Shoes.
 
Needing a break from the road, Sherryl spent the next several years in Retail as a buyer and visual merchandiser acquiring a whole new skill set and perspective.  "I learned so much being on the other side of things and really know what the retailer needs and how I can support their sell through" Lynn says.
 
Sherryl has relocated from Chicago to Nevada City and is already making her presence felt.  Vice President of Access Distribution Travis Wood comments, "I've been aware of Sherryl's excellence in the industry for a long time and we are very excited that she could bring her specific skill set to MissionSix and Monix. This is just one of the many steps Access is talking to build our brands and business in the right direction to best serve our retailers."
 
In addition, Access Distribution is please to introduce Ronnie Tambourine.
 
Having joined the Access Distribution team at the height of last year¹s sales season, Ronnie Tambourine, National Sales and Marketing Manager for the Millennium Three (M3), Silence and Avalanche programs, joins the ranks in Access's Nevada City headquarters.
 
Ronnie has given up his status (and his commute) as a North Lake Tahoe local and relocated his family down the hill.  "This will truly allow me to spend more time focusing on expanding our lines.  For the 08/09 season we have snowboard, boot and binding programs under all three brands, as well as full outerwear lines for M3 and Silence.  We will be introducing both helmets and travel bags and have also established full skateboard programs, offering product year round."
 
Having been involved in action sports for over twenty years, Tambourine has spent his time riding all over the west coast.  With a solid sales and marketing background, including time in the snow, surf and skate segments, as well as custom motorcycles, Ronnie possesses the insight and drive necessary to reaffirm the M3, Silence and Avalanche brands in their respective levels of distribution.
 
Brandon Dodd, President of Access Distribution stated, "We are extremely happy Ronnie is on board with us, as he brings a fresh face and enthusiasm. He is a key asset to our business."
