Stone brings a wealth of outdoor industry experience to his new Production Director position at Ibex. His outdoor industry career began 21 years ago at Black Diamond where he worked both on the operations side of the business in supply chain as well as on the product side in product development.

His duties include: product costing, sourcing, production planning, supply chain management, materials management and quality control.

“Ken brings a tremendous amount expertise to his role at Ibex,” said John Fernsell, founder and CEO of Ibex. “As we expand our U.S. supply chain, quality and consistency are crucial.
