David Marsala-VP Sales & Marketing

Portland-based apparel brand Nau announces the departure of co-founder and general manager Mark Galbraith, who will be pursuing a new opportunity. Effective December 1, Nau will implement a new leadership structure promoting David Marsala from Head of Wholesale to Vice President of Sales and Marketing. He will report directly to Nau’s President Jun Suk Kang.

“On behalf of our Nau family, I am beyond grateful for Mark’s leadership. He has woven our brand’s legacy and pushed our industry forward in design and sustainability standards,” said Jun Suk Kang, Nau President. “David, myself and our team will continue to uphold the values Nau was founded on 10 years ago.”

“Mark has done a tremendous job setting the foundation for Nau’s mission to utilize business as a driving force for social and environmental good,” adds Marsala. “Nau has never been more relevant to consumers than it is today, and we will continue to stay true to the brand principles Mark created as we grow the brand globally over the next 10 years.”

Following a successful 10-year anniversary campaign this fall, in 2018 Nau plans to continue a crescendo of its voice as a pioneer and thought leader in the sustainable apparel design marketplace. They will continue the expansion of their presence across North America, and introduce a fresh, comprehensive omni-channel brand and marketing strategy that will synergize the message to its growing consumer base through partner wholesalers, direct to consumer business and its flagship retail store.
