Ryan Rush - O'Neill
If there's one thing about the ASI that can be written in stone, it would be the fact that this industry is full of unique, talented and amazing people - more so than its corporate counterpart. Not only is it full of upbeat characters and "board-sport" enthusiasts, everyone seems to share one thing in common, the love for the action sports industry. Ryan Rush, VP of Men's Merchandising & Design at O'Neill, is the perfect example of the latter. MORE >>
|Company Q&A: SnL Communications|
SnL Communications is a full-service agency that handles PR for a multitude of companies within the action sports industry. Don't dare call it "Extreme" sports or Staci Levine, partner at SnL Communications, might have to exchange words with you! All kidding aside, Staci realized early on that there was great potential in introducing PR to the industry, which in turn led her to create an action sports division under SnL.
So whether it's putting on a surf contest at Mavericks or tackling the Ultimate Boarder triathlon, SnL has all sides of the spectrum covered. Staci Levine dives into the backbone of the industry, while providing great insight into the PR aspect of the marketing mix. Now all you have to do is grab a snack, a cup of "Joe" perhaps, and jump right in. MORE >>
