Outdoor apparel manufacturer oobe has named three national account managers to work alongside newly appointed national sales manager Lindsay Cousley. Matt Kelley, Jason Williams and Clyo Wilson have all worked for the South Carolina-based company in various capacities over the past few years. Kelley, who will handle the eastern U.S., has been a sales representative since 1999. Williams, who will oversee the central U.S. region, will continue to assist with corporate sales efforts and oob_'s new retail store in Clemson, S.C. Wilson, who began with oob_ as a warehouse manager in 2001, will now oversee the company’s west coast sales efforts. Cousley joined oobe after working to launch the Ireland-based Bridgedale sock line in North America. "Taking oob_ to the next level will require a detailed understanding of the people who use our products," said Cousley. "That can only come from the dedicated retailers who listen to their customers and share their wisdom. We’re excited to have an opportunity to work more closely with our valued business partners." Oobe was founded in 1994 and emphasizes "fashion-forward sportswear" and after-sport apparel for those who embrace the outdoor lifestyle.
