“Salomon is constantly striving to better serve our consumers, and with the new S/LAB Select Program we will be able to offer the same level of service to our retailers as we offer to our World Cup athletes,” says Robert Lazzaroni, Salomon’s Nordic regional commercial manager for the Americas. “In his appointment to lead the program, Josh Korn brings extensive experience with the Salomon brand and product line, as well as high-level race service. He will be key as we roll out this program offering best-in-class service to our Nordic retailers and consumers.”

Korn, a lifelong Nordic skier and racer, has been part of the Salomon family for the past 13 years as an athlete, ambassador and employee. Korn previously worked with Salomon as endurance marketing manager for the Americas, and currently serves as product development manager at Ragnar Relay Series. Korn brings extensive race and athlete management experience, as well as Salomon brand expertise to the S/LAB Select Program.

“As a lifelong fan of Salomon, I have been fortunate to observe the brand’s growth and evolution of its World Cup-level product offerings,” says Korn. “The new S/LAB Select Program will provide retailers with the same level of care that is provided to our World Cup Race Team. Retailers will be able to place an order and receive hand-selected World Cup skis grinded to a skier’s particular snow conditions within a few days. This program will be a great asset to our trusted retailers and consumers as our Salomon Nordic program continues to grow within North America.”

The S/Lab Select Program will be executed out of the Salomon Warehouse in Ogden, Utah, and will run now through February. For more information on the program please reach out to Andre Watt at Andre.watt@salomon.com.
