Cortez, Colo.,– Osprey Packs, an independent outdoor company located in the high desert and mountains of Southwestern Colorado, announces the hiring of Jeff Busic as the company's new Outdoor Sales Manager effective immediately.

Busic was previously the Sales Director for Chaco, and prior to that served as a Sales Representative in the Northwest with Egan & Associates. Additionally, he has served in a management position at the REI retail store in Eugene, Oregon.

John Pieper, Osprey's sales director, commented, “We're excited to have someone of Jeff's caliber join the Osprey family. I believe that Jeff' career path, especially his foundation of retail sales and manufacturer representation, makes him an ideal person to lead the Osprey outdoor sales effort. He was an obvious choice for us as we knew he would continue to raise the bar for Osprey's management team from the day he walked in the door.”

Jeff's hiring comes at a dynamic time for Osprey as the company continues to see exciting growth in both product line and support staff. The new Hydraulics line of hydration packs is currently in production for a February 2010 launch and will further expand Osprey's outdoor industry leadership position in packs and travel.

“Osprey has a very high commitment level to supporting our retail partners and this can only be accomplished with top quality team members who share our larger, progressive philosophy on business friendships and the outdoors,” said Pieper.

Busic will be re-locating from the Central-Western Slope of Colorado to Southwest Colorado with his wife in mid-September.
