I was lucky enough to be born into the ski industry. My father was the director of the ski school at Brighton and then later Park City. My mother was a buyer and has worked for many Specialty Retailers through out my life. Growing up I was either on the hill skiing or working in a shop. In High School I started working retail and later became one of the buyers for a local Specialty shop, The Sports Den.
While working there I was hired to be the Tech Rep for Rossignol. After two years of being a tech rep I graduated from Westminster College and was at the proverbial fork in the road. I had a job offer to go to Africa and work for a mining company or I was approached by my predecessor Jim “Cowboy” Mchough to start working for Dalbello Sports selling Blizzard skis in the Northwest and the Intermountain.
After two years I became an Independent rep and took over the Intermountain territory for Dalbello Sports. In the past 4 years I have added Ryan Davenport to my agency. We currently represent Dalbello, Under Armour, Giro, Sun Valley Ski Tools, Ion, Select, Master fit, GVS and Asterisk. I live in Sandy, Utah with my wife Mary and my 5 year old, Cash.
I want to thank my retailers for nominating me. I am honored to receive this award but feel that I could not have done this without the help of my partner, Ryan Davenport. I want to thank the brands we represent for the support and being great business partners. I have been lucky enough to be involved with great companies and great people that all have a common goal. I also want to thank all of my customers that have been so loyal and supportive to me through out the years. It has been a collaborative effort, without this support I would not have been able to achieve this award.
