March 13, 2013

Josh Walker got his start in the action sports industry as a founding member of Bern Unlimited, a lifestyle company specializing in all-season head protection for non-motorized action sports.

Based in New England, Josh was the first employee of Bern and has served as the brand builder and marketing director since the company’s inception in 2005, holding the title of Brand Manager.

Josh’s main duties for Bern are handling all of the marketing, branding, athletes, events and PR for the company, and admits he works best “in the field, where I can work with the influence makers of the industries we are in.”

“It has been an amazing experience to start a brand and work hard get to where we are at,” stated Josh in an email interview. “We sold our one millionth helmet last year which was epic.”

We got a chance to chat with Josh about his start in the industry and how he has helped grow Bern from starting up less than ten years ago to becoming an industry-leader after filling a major market void.
