New role of eastern race coordinator to support racing initiatives for all Group brands
 
Montreal, QC (December 7, 2015) — Groupe Rossignol Canada, home to Rossignol, Dynastar, Lange and Look, is proud to announce the appointment of Robin Femy as the new eastern race coordinator.

Robin FemyFemy brings an impressive background in the alpine racing world into his new role, as well as a strong allegiance to Group Rossignol brands. The former competitive athlete spent his entire career racing on Rossignol, Dynastar, Lange, and Look products, first with Equipe du Québec in North America and later moving to France to race with the Tignes Ski Club on the FIS tour.

After injury abruptly ended his race career, Femy became a guide for visually impaired competitive athletes from 2010 to 2015. During this period, Femy led his teammate to several medals on the World Cup circuit, World Championships, and the Paralympics.

“I was born in Grenoble, France, not even 20 minutes away from the Rossignol factories,” said Femy. “It feels very natural to begin this new chapter of my life working with brands that I’ve always been very close to, and that have supported me throughout my skiing career. I couldn’t be more excited!”

“Robin’s extensive knowledge of the alpine racing world, passion for our Group’s brands, and already established race network will be invaluable as he engages with athletes, parents, coaches, clubs, and our Race Center specialty retailers,” said Denis Leclaire, Product Manager and Sports Marketing Director, Group Rossignol Canada.
