Cascade Designs, Inc., the Seattle-based industry leader in the design and manufacture of premier outdoor equipment, is proud to bestow its 2009 Rep Agency of the Year award to Canada West Sports Agencies LTD of Calgary, Alberta. The award recognizes the agency for their efforts propelling strong sales growth for the company’s flagship outdoor brands: Therm-a-Rest®, MSR®, SealLine®, Platypus® and Tracks®.
Canada West Sports Agencies LTD, including Doug Gudwer, Kori Russell and Chris Leeder, has been representing Cascade Designs’ brands for over 19 years. This award recognizes their incredible performance providing exceptional service to Cascade Designs’ retailers in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. As a result of their attention to detail and can-do attitude, the majority of their dealer base grew sales of Cascade Designs’ products in 2009 in the face of a difficult economic year.
“Kori, Chris and I are extremely excited to be named Rep Agency of the Year for Cascade Designs,” said Doug Gudwer, Principal of Canada West Sports Agencies LTD. “We’re proud to continue representing a company that strives for improvement in all aspects of their business, while maintaining an unfaltering dedication to quality and innovative outdoor products.”
The Rep Agency of the Year award was given in January at the annual Cascade Designs sales meeting before the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City, Utah. A Sales Achievement Award was also given to Summit Sales, Inc. for their consistent sales and exceptional service in the Northwestern U.S. territory.
