Hendersonville, NC -- Outdoor Sports Marketing announces the departure of long time employee Martin Wilkinson. “It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Martin. We wish Martin and his wife Lauren our very best as they move on with the next great adventure in their lives,” said owner Rion Smith. Martin has taken a position with Mountain Khakis as the newest member of their sales division.

Given the considerable opportunity for growth in the southern most part of the territory Outdoor Sports Marketing sought individuals with professionalism and integrity who could increase
the frequency of dealer interaction and improve the quality of service. Both principals Nolan Davis and Rion Smith are confident that they have accomplished this difficult task and are excited to announce the addition of two new members to their team.

Whit Clifford, a Smith Optics representative, will be joining Outdoor Sports Marketing
covering Georgia, Southern Alabama, and South Carolina. In addition to Whit's commitment to
Smith he will focus his energy on helping to sell Outdoor Sports Marketing's portfolio of brands.
