Santa Barbara, Calif. (July 7, 2016) – Toad&Co, the outdoor lifestyle apparel company, is proud to announce the addition of two new agencies to its sales force – Stoner-Andrews, Inc. (New England) and Blue Sky (Western US).
“Toad&Co is proud to be partnered with such strong and established outdoor specialty agencies,” notes Scott Whipps, Toad&Co vice president of sales. “Each is progressive and professional in how they manage their territory and are built to succeed well into the future. We are very excited to provide retailers with best-in-class service and support to grow their Toad&Co business.”
Stoner-Andrews has been operating in New England for 25 years and is owned by Scott Andrews and Rick Stoner. Scott and Rick got their start when they were hired as sub reps in 1978. A close friendship and a passion for the products they sell has earned them the trust and respect of many dealers and manufacturers in the industry. With a solid reputation, they founded Stoner-Andrews in 1988, establishing a business model that straddles the ski, outdoor, bike and footwear industries.
“We are delighted to add Toad&Co to our portfolio,” notes Stoner-Andrews co-founder Scott Andrews. “We have a long history in the outdoor business and Toad&Co is a perfect fit for our team.”
The Blue Sky Group, founded by Fred Riley and Dominique Schwartz, has been representing brands in the outdoor industry in CA, AZ, NV and HI for 20 years.
“We are pleased to have aligned our agency with a brand like Toad&Co whose corporate culture, brand messaging and love of the California lifestyle sync so well with our agency's direction and energy,” notes Blue Sky co-founder Fred Riley.
Both agencies begin their work with Toad&Co effective immediately.
