Since 2005, the sales agency has garnered the SIA Rep of the Year award three times, Skiing Business’s Most Sales Growth Award, and Adidas’ Sales Person of the Year Award. "Our team is super excited to work and grow this iconic brand in the South East Region,” says Brad Decker, President of Decker & Associates. ”Mountainsmith fits perfectly with our other brands, and will be a great complement to our other offerings in the outdoor space. I have been a huge fan of Mountainsmith’s iconic packs since my first hike in the White Mountains 25 years ago. We’re glad to be a part of this great team, and look forward to a bright future with the brand." 

With the addition of their newest rep agency, Mountainsmith now has a dominating sales force in every region in the United States and Canada. Decker & Associates will work in tandem with Mountainsmith to bring the highest quality customer service to new and existing accounts based in the southeast. 

"Mountainsmith is very excited to welcome Decker and Associates to our team,” says Jay Getzel, President of Mountainsmith. “We are confident that Brad, Billy Wolfe and Alex Stratmann will utilize their collective years of outdoor retail experience, business acumen and enthusiasm to grow the consumer consciousness of our brand in the Southeast, and forge lasting relationships with our retail partners. They bring a deep understanding of our core market--this, coupled with experience in a variety of new distribution channels, will enable us to responsibly grow our presence in the territory for many years to come."
