Sea to Summit recently announced the addition of three new members to its in-house sales team, and now welcomes James Howarth to the company as they continue to experience phenomenal growth.

James brings over 15 years of industry experience with him as he joins Sea to Summit in the newly created role of Northeast Sales Manager. Most recently, James held a Product Manager role at Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS), so is very familiar with the Sea to Summit brand and products.

Josh Simpson, National Sales Manager for Sea to Summit said, “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome James to the Sea to Summit family. Working with James for the past several years during his role at EMS has been an absolute pleasure. His professionalism and understanding of the market made him a valuable member of their merchant team and he will add tremendous value to our sales team.”

James will work closely with Simpson and Sea to Summit’s independent rep agency, Sky Ambitions, to provide excellent service to Sea to Summit’s key retailers in the region. James says, “I am thrilled with the opportunity to work with such a passionate group of folks, add that to the fact that Sea to Summit continues to bring to market such innovative gear made my decision an easy one. I’m really looking forward to starting the next chapter of my career in this amazing industry.” James will remain based in Peterborough, NH and can be reached at
