Action-Sports Service Provider Network Launches Resource and Website

Action-sports Service Provider Network (ASPN) is pleased to announce the group’s launch and the launch of its new website www.ASPNnow.org, a resource specifically developed for the action-sports industry.

Carlsbad-based Action-sports Service Provider Network (pronounced “aspen”) is an actionsports industry organization whose membership includes talented business professionals from multiple fields who provide business advice, consulting, and other services to individuals and businesses in the action-sports industry.

Founded by Michael Orlando of Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton, LLP, Travis Fago of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, Doug Works of CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) and Orion Barca of Barca Company, Action-Sports Service Provider Network’s members include these and other professionals in the fields of accounting, commercial real estate, financial advising, global market development, insurance, law, lending, marketing, and more.

“Our goal at ASPN was to offer business leaders in action-sports a connection point or juncture for professional help when they just weren’t exactly sure who to call or what to ask,” said Glenn Brumage of Wabsono International, member of ASPN and a sage in the surf and skate biz. “Trying to find answers or solutions to the nagging problems of running your business in this climate is daunting. ASPN is like bringing up a philosophical question in an Irish pub, someone here is going to have the right answer.”

The members of Action-sports Service Provider Network have extensive professional experience in their respective fields and share a passion for action-sports. Collectively, they have assisted numerous businesses and individuals across the industry and, individually, each of them shred in one or more action-sports.

ASPN will be adding a limited number of additional business professionals to its membership to cover specialties not already covered by the current membership.
