May 5, 2008 (Steamboat Springs, Colo.) – Big Agnes® Inc, maker of innovative sleeping bags, pads and tents, announced the hiring of several new key personnel to its growing sales rep team. George Lesure, who's past experience includes a strong retail background as Product Manager and Inventory Planner with Eastern Mountain Sports, and most recently as VP of Operations at Guyot Designs, has joined Thomas McCarthy Associates, Inc, Big Agnes' Rep Agency for the Northeast.

“We are very excited to welcome George to the Big Agnes team. With over 20 years of experience in the specialty outdoor market, he brings a wealth of experience and strong dealer relationships to Big Agnes, “ says Garth Evans, Big Agnes' Sales Manager. “His business acumen and authentic connection to Big Agnes' core customers makes him a perfect fit to continue to grow this important territory.”

“Big Agnes is a growing and dynamic brand with appeal to the core outdoor user as well as the broader consumer. We think there is excellent opportunity for us to considerably expand Big Agnes' footprint in both the New England and Mid Atlantic markets,' says Lesure.

In the Rocky Mountain region, the KNS Group bolstered their sales force with the addition of Dray Bullard.
