Rab, the leading British manufacturer of technical mountaineering garments, gear and accessories, is pleased to announce the hire of Doug Madara as the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic U.S. sales representative.

“As our U.S. sales take off, we are focused on giving our retailers the highest level of service,” said Rab owner Matt Gowar. “Doug's years of climbing experience, both personal and professional, along with his exceptional reputation, made him an obvious choice to help promote the Rab brand. We are excited to be working with him as we enter this next phase of growth.”

Madara's thirty years of outdoor industry experience includes positions as a retail sales employee, guide, ski patroller and U.S. distribution manager. He began his career as an outside sales representative in 1985 and now, in addition to Rab, oversees the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic territories for La Sportiva, Metolius, Grivel, Sterling and Julbo.

“Climbing is my 30-year plus passion,” says Madara. “I feel fortunate to have been able to carve out a niche in the climbing industry with some fantastic lines. It keeps me involved in climbing. Somehow, whether I'm getting eaten by bugs on Cathedral Ledge, my home crag in New Hampshire, or sitting in the snow under a tarp with friends in the Bugaboos – I'm still having fun!”

Madara can be reached by phone at 603-387-4931 or by email at wlddugmad@aol.com
