SALT LAKE CITY, Utah. (January 23, 2008) -- Adventure 16 announced today that The North Face has been chosen as its “2007 Vendor of the Year” and that Ex Officio's Jeff Sheets has been chosen as “2007 Rep of the Year.”

Adventure 16 judges its yearly recipients on a dozen criteria ranging from their support of specialty retail, to providing exemplary salesperson education, to giving back to the community and promoting causes which protect the natural environment and promote responsible outdoor education.

“We are very fortunate to be able to work with so many great manufacturers and reps in our business,” said John D. Mead, president of Adventure 16. “Every year, we think about the one company and the one rep who outdistanced the rest. Giving this recognition and thanks is a big deal for us.”

Mead went on to say, “Our friends at The North Face have provided us with innovative, functional and beautifully designed outdoor gear and clothing for over three decades. They have also given us an exceptional level of support including merchandising, delivery, employee education and effective representation. It's gratifying to see that a large company who is owned by an even larger public company can stay dedicated to supporting the quality end of the specialty retail channel. The North Face has the most impressive athlete and test team of anyone in the industry. They never seem to be completely satisfied with what they accomplished last year and as a result continually ask how they can work with us to improve in the years ahead."
Mead had this to say about A16's Rep. of the Year: “We've had the pleasure of working with Jeff since he started working for A16 in the late 70's. We're proud to call him an A16 Alum. He is a wonderful and effective advocate for Ex Officio, who is a 10-year member of our Key Vendor Alliance. His level of hard work, creativity and infectious enthusiasm are invaluable and greatly appreciated." As one A16er put it, “he seems like a co-worker.”
