GSI Outdoors Sets its Sight on Growth with Additions to Sales Team

Spokane, Washington – April 24, 2015 - GSI Outdoors, a leading worldwide supplier of outdoor cook- and tableware, has just announced enhancements to their U.S. sales team. Due to the expanding growth curve of the company on the east coast, the mid-Atlantic and New England territories are being restructured to better serve the company’s retailers and customers.

The Greenrep Group, headed up by Danny Clayton, will remain responsible for driving sales in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Mountain Lake Marketing group, headed up by principals Bill Love, Bill Keys and Doug Reilly will take over marketing and sales for Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. In other news across the country, Chris Gutmann joins the Pacific Rep Works group to manage Montana and Idaho for GSI Outdoors. These announcements were made by Tom Hathaway, director of sales for North America.

The two first personnel enhancements are being implemented to strengthen GSI Outdoors’ commitment to the eastern United States. “With several new product initiatives in the pipeline, it is more important than ever for us to strengthen our relationships with core outdoor specialty stores,” commented Tom. “I’m confident that these changes to our team will provide the added contact necessary to accomplish this goal. We’re well positioned for growth and are prepared to support it.”

GSI Outdoors is in the business of making cookware and dining products that adapt the comforts of home to active outdoor lifestyles at the campsite, base camp and anywhere in between. In 1985, brothers Don and Ian Scott and sister Kathy started the company in San Diego and then moved to Spokane, Washington in 1995 where they have been ever since. In 2001, GSI Outdoors started distributing outdoor related gifts under the name of Outside Inside. What began as a small distribution company selling blue enamel tableware has expanded into the design, manufacturing, sales and marketing of an innovative array of outdoor cookware and a whole range of eating and drinking products that are technical, innovative and fun. GSI Outdoors products are distributed worldwide.
