POC Sports, supplier of protective and technologically advanced gravity sports helmets, eyewear, body armor and apparel, announces the addition of skiing industry veteran Willie Ford as POC USA Promotions and Marketing Manager. Previously serving at Under Armor's Bite Tech as U.S. Director of Winter Sports, Ford will manage all U.S. snow and bike product strategic marketing and promotions from POC USA's distribution office located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

“As an employer my goal is to encourage our employees here at POC USA to learn, grow and challenge themselves everyday,” says President of POC USA, Jarka Duba. “There's always a downside to this and we are losing a trusted part of our POC family as Erin Sullivan heads for new challenges at Timberland. The upside, we are able to fill this position with an incredible talent like Willie Ford who started with us in our warehouse when he was in college and has been a POC athlete. Willie brings an enthusiasm and experience to this position that is difficult to find and fits into our POC USA group seamlessly. I'm looking forward to watching his career unfold.”

Ford comes to POC USA with extensive sports industry experience. Most recently, he served as Director of Winter Sports for Under Armor's Bite Tech, where he was responsible for marketing and new business development. Prior to working at Bite Tech, Ford was an Account Manager at MicroArts Creative Agency in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

"It's been super exciting watching the brand grow as a POC athlete,” says Ford. “I'm honored to be joining the POC USA team in a new capacity. Now I'm focused on expanding the brand and telling the story of a company that I am very passionate about."
