Summary

Edit
Product development and marketing professional Susan Thompson is a life-long outdoor and sports lover. She grew up with the Sierra Nevada Mountains in her backyard, literally, Tahoe National Forest with it’s 800,000+ acres was her neighbor. So she knows a thing or two about how important it is to have the right gear and how to always be prepared for whatever your opponent or nature throws at you.

Currently, you can find her creating innovative and industry-leading private label travel accessory programs and launching new categories for Fortune 500 companies in the fashion and beauty industries. As a creative, outside-the-box problem solver, she not only understands how to bring products to life but fully grasps the needs of customers across a multitude of retail channels and how to reach them. She has forged partnerships with major licensing brands such as Disney and Elle to develop relevant programs and usher them to market.

When she’s not in the office she’s out training for her first ultra marathon with her dog, Lexi, hiking, camping, snowboarding, horseback riding, practicing yoga, or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Her chocolate chip cookies are legendary.

If you’re interested in grabbing coffee, talking shop, or have a job lead, please send her an email at CheersSusan@gmail.com.
