(Santa Rosa, CA): Marmot Mountain, LLC, a leading outdoor clothing and equipment manufacturer, has hired Barkley—one of the largest independent advertising agencies in the United States—to assist the already well-known outdoor brand to reach new audiences and to grow the business.

“Marmot had a very specific vision for our agency partner,” explains Tom Fritz, Vice President of Marketing for the northern California–based company. “Barkley was able to blend sound strategic planning with highly creative work in the print, TV, digital and social worlds.” We expect that balance to serve our future marketing efforts well,” he adds.

“As an agency of outdoor enthusiasts, we are fired up about working with Marmot,” said Jeff King, CEO of Barkley. “Marmot is a great brand. Their leadership in the outdoor industry and their social responsibility make them a perfect fit for our agency. We look forward to our partnership.”
