Pacific Outdoor Equipment names Megan Kress as Midwest Rep

Megan Kress will be managing the Midwest for the growing sleeping pad and waterproof gear company.

Pacific Outdoor Equipment has added Megan Kress as its newest sales rep. Megan will be handling the Midwest territory for the Bozeman, Montana based company and will be based in Duluth, Minnesota, on the edge of Lake Superior. Kress also represents Kokotat and Isis.

“In addition to being a great addition to the team, Megan is now our official “Boat Nut”. With her proximity to water and certification as a kayak instructor, dragon boat coach, and her proclamation that she would prefer to spend her time on the water in boats of all shapes and sizes. We are fortunate to have her attention when she is on dry ground.” says Sales Director John Campbell.

When not in the water Megan prefers to be in the Arctic as she says, “I have a love affair with all things Arctic, having canoed 550 miles down the Thelon River in Nunavut to Hudson Bay, the Seal River to Hudson Bay in Manitoba and most recently, the western fjords of Greenland near Uummannaq. I think I was an Inuit or a musk-ox in a former life as I'm short, compact, and low to the ground, which is a characteristic I have in common with Arctic flora and fauna”

Her personality and wit will be a welcome addition to the growing company.
