Hickory, N.C. (September 08, 2014) – Balega International, a leading performance sock brand in the run and outdoor specialty market, continues to grow as a company with the announcement of its new hire, Sara Poovey, who joined Balega’s marketing team this month.

Poovey comes from running experience both in personal and professional life. “I always enjoyed playing sports and running while in college, and I was able to rekindle my love of running four years ago when I began working for a specialty running store,” states Poovey. “During my time at the running store I worked as the floor manager and the apparel buyer. I enjoyed helping customers find their passion and fashion for running.”

“We worked with Sara for a long time in our neighborhood running store in North Carolina, and she certainly has a passion for detail and perfection,” comments Tanya Pictor, Balega’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “She was a Balega lover and supporter way before we got to know her well.”

The skills and experience Sara brings to Balega will only further Balega’s recognition and brand image as the leaders in run. “We are so excited to have her as part of our team, and happy to take someone from the running industry and give them further growth opportunities,” comments Pictor.
