North Vancouver, BC (August 3, 2011) — In yet another strategic move to support the tremendous growth and future potential of the brand, Arc’teryx proudly announces two new National Sales Managers for North America – Ryan Letchford for Canada and Brandon Carlile for the United States.

Avid skiers, cyclists, climbers, and veterans of the Arc’teryx sales team, Letchford and Carlile have played pivotal sales roles within Arc’teryx for a combined 19 years. In their new posts, the two will manage strategic relationships with key accounts within their countries and identify opportunities for developing sales while also overseeing the North American Sales team.

“Ryan and Brandon have proven to be successful in managing multiple key accounts across some of our largest territories,” said George Curleigh, Vice President of Sales for Arc’teryx. “Their ability to not only set strategic and tactical objectives, but to achieve them, made them easy choices for these positions.”

Based in Salt Lake City, UT, Carlile has serviced the Intermountain Rockies region as a member of the Downing and Associates sales group since 2005, and will use his knowledge and experience in the specialty market to further develop and service the Arc’teryx nationwide dealer base.

Letchford, based in Squamish, BC, has worked for over 10 years as the Western Canadian sales representative for Arc’teryx. Since coming to Arc’teryx in 2000, he’s been involved in many aspects of sales operations at the company and will play a critical role in managing the team of sales representatives.
