Osprey Packs, the global leader in exceptional, high-performing, innovative packs for outdoor, cycling, travel and urban adventures, is pleased to announce the hiring of outdoor industry veteran, Mark Galbraith as Senior Director of Product. In this newly created position, Galbraith will identify, develop and execute Osprey’s multi-year, global product strategy.

“Mark’s long-term experience as a cultural creative, progressive innovator and considered collaborator will ensure that Osprey is well- prepared to continue to thrill and delight the ever- increasing customer base Osprey has been so fortunate to enjoy,” said Rob BonDurant, VP of Product and Marketing. “He truly maintains a perfect balance between intellect and intuition.”

Before joining Osprey, Galbraith most recently served as general manager of Nau, a brand that he co-founded based on uncompromising principles of style, performance and sustainability. Previous to that, Galbraith held leadership positions at Patagonia, POLARTEC and Lowe Alpine.

“As an Osprey product user, I’ve always equally admired the simple elegance of Osprey’s design language and clear competence of its product solutions,” said Galbraith. “I look forward to working with the immensely talented product and design teams to further these efforts and bring Osprey sensibility to a wider tribe of fans.”

Galbraith will be based at Osprey’s headquarters in Cortez, Colorado and begins work with brand this week.
