Marker Ltd. Forms New Regional Sales Agencies

Park City, UT: Marker Ltd., a leading snowsports apparel and accessories company—based in the heart of the Wasatch mountains—has announced the formation of independent regional sales agencies in the U.S. which will improve upon and provide exemplary sales service to their dealer base.

Three agencies have been created covering three distinct regions: Janie Fausold & Associates (Western states); Nelson and Associates (Midwestern states) and Corky Brown, KCB Associates (Eastern states). Each agency is comprised of an agency manager and a team of independent sales representatives covering all geographic locations within the three regions.

The key benefits Marker Ltd. retailers will enjoy from this new structure will be a more focused and increased pool of resources and staff as well as greater centralized points of service. The new structure will also bring about more consistent follow up and communication during key sell-in and sell-thru periods during the season.

Daryl Santos, General Manager of Marker Ltd., commented on the exciting new formation, “This new strategy puts in place agencies in key geographic regions within the country. Their responsibilities will be to follow through on all aspects of the key metrics and business relationships between our retail partners and Marker Ltd.”

Each new agency and their associated independent sales representatives are currently fulfilling the coming 2012 winter business plans with clinics, in store promotions and sales events while concurrently scheduling appointments and previewing the all-new 2013 Marker Ltd. collection.

Santos further adds, “Our mission is clear: improve upon and provide our dealer base with the highest levels of service.”
