SEATTLE, Wash. (May 5, 2016) Outdoor Research, the Seattle-based leader in technical outdoor apparel and accessories, this month added three new sales agencies across much of Canada and in the southeastern U.S. to strengthen the brand’s sales and relationships with its retailers.

All three agencies offer a broad reach in their respective territories with professional and experienced teams and organized infrastructure. This allows Outdoor Research to show the line professionally, submit orders in a timely manner and better execute special events and clinics, according to Dave Mahoney, Outdoor Research VP of Sales.

In western Canada, Mountain Exposure will cover British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, the Yukon, and the Northwest Territories. The nine-person agency, led by Louis Julien Roy, has an office and showroom in Calgary and will open a showroom in Vancouver this year.

In eastern Canada, Les Agences Stéphane Morin, which currently covers Quebec and the Atlantic provinces, will expand to cover Ontario. Led by Stephane Morin, the agency employs 10 with a 5,000-square-foot office and showroom in Montreal and a second office opening in Toronto in 2016. Les Agences Stéphane Morin can be reached at (514) 996-3270 or info@asmsports.ca.

In the southeastern U.S., Katherine Corbett, an outdoor industry sales veteran with a focus on high-level customer service, will cover Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia based out of an office in Hendersonville, N.C. Previously a sales representative for a number of other outdoor industry brands, working both in house and for other sales agencies over the years, Corbett brings a variety of professional experience to her role, including sales, marketing, event planning, and retail management. Corbett can be reached at (770) 861-2266 or katherinecorbett2266@gmail.com.

“Outdoor Research has experienced strong growth in North America in recent years, and, beyond just great product, we’ve gotten there with attention to detail and a customer-focused approach,” Mahoney said. “We know these three teams have the same values, and we’re proud to welcome them aboard.”
