Fischer Skis US, LLC Restructures Alpine Division


Auburn, NH (May 31, 2012) — Fischer Skis US, LLC has recently restructured it’s Alpine division after the departure of Erik Anderson who was hired in 2007 as the National Sales Manager.

Discussions took place last week at the US Headquarters in Auburn, NH with the top level management from its parent company, Fischer Sports GmbH (Ried, AUT). The decision was made to start the search immediately for a new Alpine National Sales Manager to work out of the home office in NH.

Matt Berkowitz (Director of Alpine Marketing & Product), who has been with the company since 2003, is taking over some of Anderson’s responsibilities so the new Alpine Sales Manager can focus on increasing sales and market share for the brand by working closely with the sales force and retailers.

Both Chris Smith and Pearson Neal were also recently promoted. Smith will continue to work out of Park City, UT with the title of Promotions and Product Development, while Neal will continue to work out of the NH office as the National Alpine Race Coordinator.

“This new structure makes the most sense for the brand, especially with the momentum we have right now with our Vacuum Boot Technology,” said Berkowitz. “I’m also excited to be working closer with Chris and Pearson moving forward. They bring a lot to the table for the brand as they both possess a diverse set of skills and a deep passion for the wintersports industry.”

The Alpine National Sales Manager position is currently posted on as well as Resumes can also be emailed directly to Fischer at:
