Jeff Soumokil


In my 30+ year career in the Sports and Fashion Industry I've focused on all aspects of Design, Research, Development, Engineering, and Production including Quality Control/Assurance both corporately and as a consultant. Project categories include all genders of aerobics/fitness, cross training, basketball, golf, beachwear, running, tennis, skate, BMX, hiking, hunting, motorsports, military, cleated/plated products (soccer, baseball, cycling, BMX) and the fashion equivalents of these. Since 2008, I have been following the trend of Wearable Electronics, integrating different technologies into meaningful, everyday use apparel, footwear, and accessories for mass market. I have been on small task force teams to merchandise, design, develop, and produce the first hybrid utility boot line, a $20M hardcore skate line and a $35M intercity fashion brand all featured on front page of magazines like Footwear News. I have gained the knowledge, experience and success in overseeing domestic and offshore manufacturing in multiple countries. I have had the opportunity to be instrumental in the monumental growth of every company I have worked for regardless of the position held. I am transitioning towards the upper management side of the Sports and Fashion Industry but still passionate about the hands-on product side of the business. I am committed to self development and balance in all aspects of my family, church, and professional lives.
