SCARPA North America retains new sales representative in south-central U.S.

Effective immediately, SCARPA North America will retain Conner Larsen to represent the brand in the south-central U.S., including: Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Louisiana. Larsen joins the team as sales in the territory show strong growth and potential, among all categories – but particularly climbing, hiking, and trail running.  

Coming over from an in-house sales position with Petzl, representing the same territory, Larsen not only has strong relationships with key dealers, but has also identified opportunities for brand growth in the territory. He will be working remotely from his home in Utah, until January, when he will relocate to Austin, Texas. 

“We are really excited to welcome Conner Larsen to our sales team.” said Mark Mathews, SCARPA North America Director of Sales. “Conner brings a great energy and passion to his business and to SCARPA as a brand. As sales in the territory are growing rapidly, Conner will be hitting the ground running.”

An avid climber and skier, Larsen is also looking forward to joining SCARPA.   

“I'm very excited to be joining the team. Their attention to quality and performance has driven me to use their products not only in my personal outdoor pursuits, but also now representing them in my professional life. I look forward to being an integral part of a very successful team,” said Larsen.
