BOULDER, Colo. Based on strong territory growth combined with responsive service, SCARPA North America this week gave its 2013 Sales Rep of the Year Award to Colorado-based KnS Reps. KnS works as SCARPA’s sales team in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and New Mexico.

SCARPA based this year’s selection on strong double-digit growth in KnS’s territory for both Spring and Fall 2013, strong pre-season 2014 growth, consistent communication with SCARPA North America, and strong customer service with retailers, made possible by a KnS having comprehensive team structure in place.

“KnS does a fantastic job of representing SCARPA to our retail base, providing exemplary sales and service,” said Mark Mathews, SCARPA North America Director of Sales. “With the rapid growth rate SCARPA has seen over the last five years, it takes a dynamic and adaptable agency to manage the situation, and KnS has accomplished that in good style. We are fortunate to have them representing SCARPA in the Rockies.”

SCARPA’s Sales Rep of the Year award is based on a number of criteria, including sales performance current year versus previous year, pre-season booking performance, agency structure and engagement with the in-house team at SCARPA.

KnS Reps consists of principal owners Kirk Haskell and Scott Sutton, and sales associate Kristen Turner. The team brings a combined 50 years of experience in the region. KNS also represents Big Agnes, Deuter, Ortovox, Nikwax, Julbo and Jetboil. Contact information is available at KnSReps.com.
