Brandywine River Representatives had the highest percent growth both in both dollars and pairs of shoes in 2008. Retailers have had nothing but great things to say about Brandywine and the service they provide their retail partners.

The Vasque Agency of the Year Award was created to shine the spotlight on members of the Vasque sales team who go above and beyond the normal responsibilities of independent sales representatives. Winners are recognized for their commitment to Vasque sales and marketing, and for outstanding success in both. Brandywine has served the Mid-Atlantic region since it was founded in 2002, and consists of four individuals: founder and owner Andy Molter, northern sales rep David Donahue, southern sales rep Justin Lannan, and office manager Kalai King.

“We are truly honored to receive this award. It is always a great feeling to be recognized for the job we do, especially when it comes from a family-owned company with 104 yrs of history like Red Wing / Vasque. We must be doing something right. At Brandywine River, we do our best to work as partners with our retailers and our brands alike, continually searching for all opportunities to drive for success,” Molter says. Brandywine River has had an amazing year with Vasque, Eagle Creek and Katadyn bestowing this agency, top-agency or top sales nods for 2008.
