Gary Bryant, European Brand Manager for Arc'teryx, will be taking the newly created position of Vice President of Sales.
The Vancouver-based position will be responsible for worldwide sales for the brand. Bryant is taking over the Sales responsibilities of current Senior VP of Sales and Marketing, Bob Holding, who is partnering with Jim Purdy to create Waypoint Outdoor, a new sales agency servicing the Pacific Northwest.
Bryant will relocate to Vancouver in August and will be training with Holding through the end of the year.
â€œGary is a core part of our team. He has been tremendously successful growing our European Business, and his extensive product background makes him a natural choiceâ€ said Tyler Jordan, President & CEO. â€œIn addition to replacing Gary's role as European Brand Manager, we will be hiring a Vice President of Marketing in the coming months. Bob & I will work extensively with the new VPs to ensure a smooth transition over the balance of the year.â€
â€œIt's been a great experience working with Bob over the past few years and I am pleased that we will still have the opportunity to work closely in his new ventureâ€ said Bryant. â€œI am really looking forward to working more closely with the great team we have in Vancouver and building further on our success.â€
