We're very excited to announce that Brooks Sports, Inc. has hired Liz Wilson as Director of Apparel Sales. Her major responsibilities include strategically developing and leading all aspects of our apparel sales, for both the running specialty and the non-running specialty channels. She also sets apparel revenue goals and serves as the sales liaison between the product team and the marketplace.

With a robust history of sales, marketing and general management experience in the athletic apparel industry, Liz spent the last 16 years working at SportHill in Eugene, Ore. She held many roles at SportHill, including National Sales Manager and most recently Sales Director of National and International Key Accounts. She helped develop SportHill from a company with seven styles when she joined, to a company that now has many styles and programs including a “Plus Sizing” program, as well as a kids and team apparel line.

Liz's running career is at least as remarkable as her professional past. While in college at University of Oregon, she was a seven-time NCAA All-American. She competed in four Olympic Trials, starting in 1992 running the 3000 Meters to most recently at the 2004 Olympic Marathon Trials where she finished 13th. Still kicking strong, this past January Liz won the Arizona Rock ‘n' Roll Half Marathon.

Brooks' VP of Specialty Sales Rick Wilhelm speaks for the whole company when he says, “Brooks is very excited to have Liz on board. She understands the needs of our account base and brings to Brooks not only a passion for running but a passion for hard work. With her skills set and can-do attitude, Liz will enable Brooks to better manage our steady growth in the marketplace.”
