2010 US Rep of the Year

South (WV/ VA/ KY/ TN/ NC/ SC/ GA/ AL/ MS/ FL/ AR/ LA)

Brad Decker
Award South

I started skiing at the age of three at Homestead Resort in Virginia and my family became hooked! My parents bought a condo at Wintergreen Resort in Virginia and we were there every weekend! We always shopped at Ski World in Virginia Beach and my father became friends with Nick Savage, the owner, and the rest is history! In 1994 I started working for Nick at the ski shop in and then went on to become manager and one of his buyers. I was always a big Nordica and Never Summer fan so I jumped at the opportunity to work for them in 2005.

I currently live in Norfolk, VA with my wife Jessica and my 2.5 year old daughter, Mollie Paige, who has already been on skis!

I want to dedicate this award to the late Nick Savage, as he gave me a chance to work in the industry that I love and I am very gracious for the opportunity he gave me.

I also want to thank the Tecnica Group for making great products and being a great retail partner in this industry! I want to also thank my family at Never Summer for all the support and love down here!

All my retailers are great partners to work with and I appreciate them voting for me. I am extremely honored!
