Walsh as the company's first regional sales manager. Walsh, a former competitive soccer player and sales rep for the company, will report directly to Phil Percuoco, U.S. director of sales.
As regional sales manager for the East Coast, Walsh will be responsible for opening new retail locations and servicing both new and on-going key accounts. She will work closely with the company's retail technical support and training team to ensure that on-floor sales associates are fully briefed on the health and performance benefits of the company's dorsiflexion technology that positions the heel lower than the forefoot.

Walsh is a former collegiate team soccer player, having competed for the University of Maine, the U-18 Canadian National soccer team, and the U-20 Canada games team. Walsh holds a B.A. in Business Administration from the University of Maine.

Lowered Heel Offers Health, Training and Performance Advantages
The SpringBoost dorsiflexion line, which positions the heel lower than the forefoot, offers a number of health, training and performance advantages. Independent testing, professional athletes and coaches, professional trainers and medical and scientific researchers in Europe and the U.S. agree that a foot positioned in dorsiflexion promotes better posture, alleviates pressure on the lower back, strengthens the core, and activates muscle fibers when training the body's target zones â€“ specifically calves, hamstrings, and the glutes (buttocks).
SpringBoost is headquartered in the U.S. at 135 Beaver Street, Suite 400, Waltham, Mass. 02452. Tel. 781 894 0009 or toll free 1 866 7BOOST1; www.springboost.com.
