Oboz Footwear Hires Two to Bolster Staff and Help Shape Growth

Oboz welcomes two new employees to staff marketing and accounting; Jen Radick and Pam Malyurek are on the job now.

(Bozeman, MT, January 8, 2013)—Oboz Footwear has expanded its in-house team at its Bozeman, Montana headquarters with the hiring of Jen Radick and Pam Malyurek. Both women are on the job now—Radick as Marketing Coordinator and Malyurek as Controller.

Jen Radick comes to Oboz with varied experience as an interior designer, artist, marketing consultant, retail buyer and store manager. She holds an art degree from the Art Institute of Chicago and has made southwest Montana her home since 1985. At Oboz, she will help ensure that Oboz' brand voice is consistent across all marketing avenues, oversee a new brand ambassador program, and work with retailers to develop and implement in-store and regional marketing events. Radick will work with Sharon Gauding, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

Pam Malyurek—a Montana native—fills the newly-created position of Controller at Oboz, assisting CFO Tim Tripp. She brings 16 years of background in the footwear and apparel industries, with expertise in accounting, purchasing, logistics and production management in domestic and international markets. Malyurek graduated from Montana State University, where she studied business and accounting.

“These women bring rich experience and creativity to our team,” said Oboz President John Connelly. “We welcome them and know that they have the instrumental skills that will help Oboz through its next phase of growth.”

Connelly also expressed thanks and appreciation to Taylor Keeley, who is leaving Oboz after over five years to travel the world. “We hired Taylor the moment we met her. She was our first employee and she helped us build Oboz from the ground up in countless ways, with dexterity, humor and a can-do approach. Thank you, Taylor!”
