For over twenty years I have worked in the winter sport industry, primarily in sales. Through this experience I have become skilled at planning and implementing successful sales strategies and leading effective sales teams. I began my career travelling the world as a pro snowboarder. I then moved into sales positions for ski and snowboard shops, and found my niche selling products for the sport I have dedicated my life to. This work led me to becoming an Independent Manufacturer’s Representative, and I spent eight years growing multiple brands I represented in the Northwest region. In 2010 I moved into sales management and became the Vice President of Sales with Mervin MFG and Quiksilver Inc. in Seattle, WA. In this position I learned how to successfully manage a sales team and my team was responsible for significant sales growth both nationally and internationally. I am currently employed as a Sales Manager at POW Inc., which includes the brands POW Gloves, Holden Outerwear, and Spacecraft Clothing. At POW Inc. I manage a team of ten sales persons and two brands, POW Gloves and HOLDEN Outerwear.
