Knollenberg's primary territory will be California, however he will travel throughout the country for meetings with large-scale dealers.

“I'm very excited to join Aussie Dogs and help build and develop the business with existing and prospective retailers,” said Knollenberg. “I'm confident that my extensive footwear background and familiarity working with key independents and national accounts will allow us to expand our distribution in this ever-changing landscape that is the footwear industry.”
