Marker Skiwear Ltd. Announces Sales Rep Transition in Northeast

Park City, (UT): Effective Nov. 9, 2011, Doug Hawkins (Hawk & Assoc.) will be ending the representation of Marker Skiwear Ltd. in the Northeast territory, including Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. Hawk & Assoc., with over 10 years experience selling and servicing Marker Skiwear Ltd. products, will devote their efforts to other products and brands in their portfolio.

“It has been exciting and rewarding to have represented Marker Skiwear Ltd. for this period of time and be a part of the continued evolution and growth of the brand in the Northeast,” explains Doug Hawkins. “It has been a real privilege to work with so many wonderful people in the Marker Skiwear Ltd. organization and great dealers in the territory. It's been a great run and I'm sure the next years for Marker Skiwear Ltd. will be equally exciting,” adds Hawkins.

Replacing Hawk & Assoc. is Steve Batchelder of SB Associates. Steve assumes this position with a wealth of experience and “hands on” knowledge of the Northeast ski specialty retailers and the ski apparel industry. His intimate understanding of the retail market place and its needs has come thru years of experience both in the retail and supplier sector. For a number of years Steve was a dedicated retail professional, and more currently has developed an expertise in technical ski space representing significant brands, including Descente and Nordica.

A further testament to Steve's commitment to the industry is reflected in his being a five time board member of the NESRA as well as past president of the NESRA.

Daryl Santos, GM of Marker Skiwear Ltd. reflected on the transition. “We have been very fortunate over the past years to have Doug and his agency representing Marker Skiwear Ltd. The dedication to the brand and keen insights on product and their professional approach to working with the specialty retailers in the Northeast have been very much appreciated. We are grateful for the successes that Hawk & Assoc. has brought Marker Skiwear Ltd. and we appreciate their efforts to ensure a smooth transition to Steve Batchelder. I am confident that Steve will continue to build upon this platform of excellent service and success for the retailers.”
