Outdoor Research, a leading, independent manufacturer of outdoor apparel and accessories, this month hired John Pettigrew as its sales representative in the Alberta region of Canada. Pettigrew will work toward growing Outdoor Research sales in the region working with Outdoor Research Canadian Director of Sales Eric Joannette.
Currently a sales rep in the region for Head skis and several other brands, Pettigrew also knows the retailer perspective on the business well, having previously owned three ski shops in Calgary. A native of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Pettigrew has lived in central Canada for more than 20 years. An avid outdoorsman, Pettigrew attributes his love of outdoor sports to building a successful sales agency.
“My whole life has been built around outdoor and ski,” he said. “Both intermix and both are a huge part of my life.”

About Outdoor Research
Outdoor Research® is Designed by Adventure®. We provide Innovation and Inspiration for the Relentless Adventurer. Based in Seattle – with in-house manufacturing and prototyping capabilities at our company headquarters – Outdoor Research was founded in 1981 after a failed piece of gear on an Alaskan climbing expedition inspired ideas for a better design. Ever since that first product, the X-Gaiter, put Outdoor Research on the map, we have been dedicated to building better outdoor apparel, gloves, hats and an array of other outdoor accessories informed by real-world testing. We develop innovative, functional, bomb-proof products that are beautiful in their simplicity. Design abides by the maxim ‘make it better, not just new or different,’ and our gear is backed by our Infinite Guarantee®. We listen, value and empower each other and our fellow adventurers – we invite input from our customers, athlete ambassadors and the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations Test Team. We’re independent, letting us strive to provide the best value to our customers, not shareholders. We are committed to our core sports: alpinism, rock and ice climbing, hiking, backpacking, paddling, trail running, and backcountry and sidecountry skiing. We’re growing, as a company and as individuals. And we’re having fun along the way.
