Brooks Range Welcomes Carl Kirkpatrick as South East Sales Rep

Carl Kirkpatrick, owner of Appalachian Woods, will join the Brooks Range family serving as the South East sales rep starting immediately.

Brooks Range Mountaineering Equipment, maker of high quality backcountry and mountaineering gear, is pleased to announce that Carl Kirkpatrick, owner of Appalachian Woods, will join the Brooks Range family, serving as the South East sales rep. Starting immediately, Kirkpatrick will be covering all Brooks Range sales in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, the Carolinas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky.

Kirkpatrick founded his independent sales company, Appalachian Woods, more than three years ago and brings extensive experience and strong relationships within the outdoor industry. “The benefits of working with a smaller agency such as Appalachian Woods is the amount of care Carl is going to apply to the Brooks-Range brand,” said Jeff Blakely, general manager of Brooks Range Mountaineering Equipment. “He already has relationships with key retailers in his territory and has hit the ground running.”

“I started seeing Brooks-Range at OR three years ago,” said Carl Kirkpatrick. “I always slowed down to check out the products as I walked by the booth, which always seemed to have a cluster of customers. Brooks-Range has been on my radar for quite some time and recently the opportunity opened up for me to look closer into adding another company to my line up.”

Brooks Range continues to add more outside sales representatives, further increasing their high level of customer service that both retailers and consumers have come to expect. Please contact for more information on Brooks Range's sales employment needs.
