Chums, leading manufacturer of outdoor accessories and apparel, is proud to announce Tiffany Berger as the newest addition to its innovative Product Development team. Based out of Chums’ Sun Valley, Idaho offices, Berger will oversee research, strategy and execution of new and existing Chums product line introductions.
Berger joins Chums after four years as Scott USA’s Optics Product Manager, overseeing product development concept design and implementation. With over 13 years of experience managing the evolution of new and existing product lines, Berger brings extensive design, development, engineering, marketing and sales knowledge to her new role at Chums.
“We were immediately impressed by Tiffany’s leadership experience managing all aspects of the product development process” said Tom Ferries, Sales and Marketing Manager at Chums. “She has a keen understanding of how to manage long-term strategies while remaining consistent and true to a brand’s mission – something that’s extremely important to us as we continue to expand Chums’ line of accessory cases and eyewear retainers in the coming years.”
Prior to her role at Scott USA, Berger served as Global Product Developer at Nike Golf for nine years where she managed the company’s fit and wear-testing programs, and implemented detailed development plans for bag, glove and footwear models.
“I’ve always been impressed with Chums’ diverse product line and couldn’t be happier to join a brand that’s a staple for so many outdoor enthusiasts” said Berger. “I look forward to working with the development team to identify new product opportunities and continue fostering critical business relationships with other product teams and outside vendors from my years at Scott and Nike.”
In 1983, a Colorado River guide sought a simple way to keep his sunglasses out of the river. Through this innovative idea the Chums original cotton retainer was born. More than thirty years later, Chums is now a global brand that offers a wide range of outdoor products and apparel, as well as a leader in eyewear and PPE accessories in the industrial safety market for the past 20 years. Chums’ mantra is simple: provide fun, quality products to enjoy while at work or play. Chums: Helping you hang on since 1983.
