[Norwalk, CT - 15 September 2009] HEAD USA is very pleased to announce that Jon Rucker has joined the Head Winter Sports team as Senior Business Manager. Jon will be responsible for the product and marketing efforts for the Winter Sports business in the United States and will report to Jeremy Sherwood, CEO Head USA and VP Head USA Winter Sports.

Jon is passionate about the Winter Sports business and brings his enthusiasm and winter sports experience to Head. In college he was captain of his Alpine Ski team. Upon graduation he was a technical service specialist for Salomon in the Southeast region before becoming a Sales Representative for K2 for 6 years. Jon then joined Nordica (Benetton Sports) as Sales Representative for several years before becoming Nordica’s Ski Product Manager. Most recently Jon has been President of a Green Building and Business Consulting Company in North Carolina.

“Through a rigorous selection process that we conducted Jon distinguished himself and we are confident that Jon’s background and enthusiasm will help us direct our Winter Sports marketing efforts here in the United States,” said Jeremy Sherwood, CEO Head USA.

To properly staff the Marketing area, Jon will immediately begin the search for a Product Manager for Winter Sports which we plan to have in place within a month to insure the proper focus on the 2010-2011 season.
