Ahnu Footwear, creators of performance shoes and hiking boots for the fashion-minded outdoor enthusiast, and a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation (NASDAQ: DECK), is proud to announce it has chosen Venture Sports as its 2013 Sales Agency of the Year.

Led by principle Al Tunstall, and backed by Roger Jones, Kris Versteegen and Ahnu Field Sales Rep Cora Harms, the Venture Sports team was awarded this honor-- at Ahnu’s recent national sales meeting-- for overall brand growth in the Southeast.

“The commitment we’ve seen from Venture Sports in finding new and exciting ways to engage our customers in the Southeast is remarkable,” said Ahnu co-founder, Jacqueline Van Dine. “Al and his team are true champions of our retail partners and of the Ahnu brand itself. We look forward to our partnership with them in 2014.”

Alongside the overall Sales Agency of the Year recognition, Venture Sports nabbed honors in a long list of criteria including strategic distribution management, exceptional customer service to key accounts and enhanced regional marketing efforts and events. 

The Southeast region is comprised of Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida and Mississippi.

“It has been tremendously rewarding and a real privilege to be a part of such a dynamic brand," said Tunstall. “Ahnu is that rare footwear brand that personifies performance, yet appeals to a wide consumer base from hard core hiker to yoga enthusiast. “
