Italian-based outdoor footwear brand Garmont is building its North American sales team for its reintroduction to the domestic market with the fall ’15 collection.
The brand announced last year that it would return to the North American market after being acquired by the VeNetwork investment group in Italy and would set up its U.S. headquarters in New Hampshire before its fall ’15 relaunch.
The current sales team is divided regionally and includes the agencies Clear Creek Reps in the Rocky Mountains, South Sales in the Pacific Northwest, The Road North LLC in New England, Eastern Outdoor Sales in the Southeast, and the Arete Sales Group in the Mid-Atlantic region.
“Our sales agency teams have a great knowledge of and relationships in the outdoor footwear industry to purely represent the brand,” Ben Palliser, director of sales for Garmont, said in a statement. “Together we will bring the energy of Garmont, its premium footwear collections and its passion for adventure to mountain athletes here in North America.”
While the current sales team is divided to cover the country, the brand said it would continue to add agencies to the team. The fall ’15 line will feature backpacking, hiking and approach footwear.
