He began his career at Edelman Public Relations working in Public Affairs.

“As a life-long outdoorsman, I’m thrilled to be joining and supporting a company whose high-quality products I’ve used and trusted for years,” Maisonpierre said. “I’m looking forward to working closely with Cascade Designs’ marketing and product development teams and helping to expand brand awareness.”
