“We couldn’t be more excited to work with JAM Collective and their team that offers creative energy for storytelling and a deep understanding of building brands. JAM is the perfect partner to help us share our heritage and next generation of products,” said George Curleigh, vice president of Vasque. “We’d also like to offer our sincere gratitude to the team at Darby Communications for all they’ve done over the last nine years.”

Founded in 1964, Vasque is a performance-based outdoor footwear brand rich in heritage and deeply rooted in the outdoors. Vasque understands the outdoors is a state of mind.

“We are thrilled with the opportunity to work with Vasque, an incredible company with deep roots in the outdoor industry and a reputation for building the most trustworthy product for the trail,” said Julie Atherton, founder of JAM Collective. “As Vasque continues to grow, we look forward to creating unique and powerful communication strategies that introduces the brand to new markets.”

Working alongside Atherton will be JAM’s Amy May, director of outdoor at JAM, and Sara Murphy, director of digital communication, who have a combined 17 years of experience in outdoor, consumer and cause marketing.
