Alex Corner, based out of Ste-Agathe Des Monts, Canada, has been retained by Mountainsmith to oversee their sales and marketing efforts in the Quebec and Ontario provinces. This is one of several steps in a targeted strategy to grow Mountainsmith's presence in Canada. Mountainsmith is a cutting-edge innovator of outdoor packs, tents and sleeping bags, camera bags, storage solutions, pet products and adventure-travel luggage. The announcement was made by the company's U.S. sales manager, Jonathan McFarland, who will be spearheading Mountainsmith's expansion in Canada.

Alex joins the company with outstanding and diversified qualifications in outdoor sports as well as aeronautics. In addition to Mountainsmith, he currently represents Briko-Maplus and Hydrapack. Alex has owned an outdoor/ski shop in the past and he has worked in all facets of the outdoor industry as a buyer, in sales and merchandising, customer service and public relations. He has also worked in the ski industry as a technical representative for such prestigious companies as Fischer and Swix. His diplomas in aircraft maintenance engineering, physics and Pure & Applied Science add a scientific and mechanical element to his impressive resume.

“Up until now, we have been concentrating on focusing on and strengthening our U.S. sales efforts, distribution and marketing. Over the next few years, it is our intent to take similar steps to grow Mountainsmith as an important outdoor brand in Canada,” commented Jonathan. “We know we already have a strong product line. Now with Alex onboard and with our Pacific NW agency, the Frontier Group, representing Mountainsmith in British Columbia and Alberta, we are positioned to make an impact in the four provinces. We welcome Alex to our team and know that he will be a very strong asset to help us achieve our goals north of the border.”

The quality and comfort of all Mountainsmith products—technical backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, travel storage systems, luggage, camera bags, as well as the lumbar pack icons—set the standard for the worldwide outdoor marketplace. Mountainsmith manufactures, markets, and distributes an expanding group of products designed to meet the demands of travel on and off the trail, through airports, and anywhere that carrying-comfort is essential.
