Seattle, U.S.A – Cascade Designs, Inc., the Seattle-based outdoor industry leader in the design and manufacture of premier outdoor equipment, is pleased to announce the addition of Erica South to the sales management team. South will manage and support the sales efforts for Therm-a-Rest®, MSR®, SealLine® and Platypus® brand products in Canada.

A thirteen year outdoor industry veteran, South represented the MSR brand for several years at the start of her sales rep career. Most recently, she owned and managed her own agency, representing several major outdoor brands in the northwest U.S. territory.

“Erica's got a proven track record of service and a valuable sales rep perspective, both of which are great assets to our team,” said Bill Conradt, Director of Sales. “Her addition also gives us the resources to focus even more on the future success of our customers through exceptional service and planning.”

Existing Sales Managers Fletcher Andrews and Dale Karacostas will continue managing U.S. key accounts, and are splitting up management of the U.S. territories. Andrews will manage the mid-west and western U.S. territories, while Karacostas—current Sales Manager for Canada—will be transitioning to management of the eastern and southern U.S. territories.

In her free time, South enjoys skiing, climbing and backpacking. She will be working from Seattle and maintaining residence in Eugene, Oregon and begins her position immediately.
