White River Junction, VT (March 10, 2016) Ibex Outdoor Clothing welcomes Bill Schmid and Parallel 33 Sales Group, Inc. to its sales rep team. Parallel 33 Sales Group’s territory will cover the states of California, Nevada and Arizona.

Headquartered in Southern California, the three-member Parallel 33 Sales Group team has more than 18 years of sales experience with a highly diversified customer base and specializes in the outdoor and fitness markets. Over the past five years, Parallel 33 Sales Group has focused more on electronics and accessory product lines for the Outdoor Specialty market, but the agency is looking to expand its business to include what specialty retailers are selling more of and asking for – which is new and different apparel lines that truly make them specialty retailers.

In addition to Ibex, Parallel 33 Sales Group represents Suunto, Goal Zero, Nemo Equipment and Topo Athletic.

“We are really looking forward to working with Parallel 33 Sales,” said Matt Kaplan, VP of Sales for Ibex Outdoor Clothing. “They have built a strong reputation as an agency of professionals with not only the best interests of their brands in mind, but also the best interests of the retailers. Their entrepreneurial thinking and passion for the outdoors will help to take Ibex to a new level in the Western U.S.” 

“Ibex is the leader in wool apparel in the outdoor industry and is truly encompassing of outdoor specialty apparel,” said Schmid. “While Ibex is truly an Outdoor specialty apparel brand, this Merino wool brand also opens up our agency to leverage our relationships in the fashion, running and boutique accounts in city centers like San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego.”

Schmid adds, “Ibex is in the midst of a huge growth trajectory, and I am enthusiastic about helping the company accomplish its goals.
