[Dover, NH] - NEMO Equipment, Inc., an award-winning outdoor gear manufacturer focused on shifting the way people enjoy and interact in the outdoors, has added five to its team, including a product development manager, product line manager, demand planner, graphic designer and customer service and operations assistant.
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
Zack has always been curious about the creation and function of products. His curiosities led him to the Rhode Island School of Design where he earned his BFA in Industrial Design and received the ID Furniture Award. Zack most recently worked in the industrial design group at Apple where he focused on making micron-accurate prototypes of Apple’s design concepts and refined his personal processes and techniques. After six years in California, Zack, his wife, and their dog Crosby packed up for a cross-country camping trip and settled on the North Shore of Massachusetts. At NEMO, Zack is able to combine his love for technical innovation and the outdoors.

The best things about growing up in Western MA for Sam was being surrounded by both her family and the outdoors. It was through that combination she developed a passion for skiing, hiking, back road runs, and beach trips. After graduating from Keene State with a degree in Graphic Design, Sam and her dog Beetle moved to the Seacoast, shortening those trips to the ocean. Prior to joining NEMO, she worked in the bike industry as a designer for Kali Protectives. Sam will work with the design team on all of NEMO’s creative, from workbooks to website to product labeling and social media.
