George Manley, of Trailcross.com, will be servicing retailers from as far southeast as DC, Maryland and Pennsylvania, and north up to Maine, coming highly recommended from several of MILLET's current retailers, praising him as a hard-working, focused, and dedicated rep, which was a priority for MILLET.

Also important to MILLET, is Manley’s extensive experience as a mountaineer and alpine skier, making him an ideal end user and someone who can speak first hand on the quality of MILLET products.

That high quality product line was exactly what attracted Manley to MILLET, stating “I was impressed with Millet's strength and performance. I appreciate products that provide a good value by utilizing sturdy raw materials and pragmatic innovation.”

Espinosa is stepping in to take over WA, OR, and AK, bringing 10+ years experience in the outdoor industry, varying from climbing instruction, to retail buying, to non-profit management. Eddie also works with the American Alpine Club as a regional coordinator, and is deeply imbedded in the climbing and outdoor community.

“George and Eddie are ideal additions to MILLET's sales team – they both bring deep knowledge of MILLET's core business, both on the retail service side and as outdoor enthusiasts and end users themselves.”
