Deuter USA Announces Timy Fairfield as Newest Ambassador
Longmont, CO (March 27, 2012) – Deuter USA announces Timy Fairfield as their newest ambassador of their recently launched ambassador program. Deuter’s ambassador program is intended to promote the brand and provide outreach on a grassroots level and began in March 2012.
“We have been working with a number of individuals over the past few years, but are now formalizing agreements, getting top caliber people and investing our energy into working with great people who want to work with us and believe in our product and brand,” says Christian Mason, Director of Sales and Marketing for Deuter USA. “Working with Timy – a real climbing icon – speaks volumes about our reputation and versatility of our product line.”
“The packs in the Deuterproduct line are ultra-light and appeal to very modern aesthetic style. Deuter products follow a sleek, well-conceptualized technically sound performance oriented European design philosophy. The performance of our backpack impacts our performance at the rock – especially when slogging heavy loads for route development. An unbearably uncomfortable load causes fatigue and muscle soreness, which can lead to a less than pleasant day of climbing. I am very proud to be endorsing Deuter as a brand that produces high quality products that I personally enjoy using and genuinely want to promote through my special events.”
