- Daniel & Joe

for buyers

We are industry veterans that understand the outdoor product cycle inside and out because we’ve worked it as you, the buyer, and now we work it with you.  You have a high bar with your store and the brands you carry.  We strive to understand what works best in your market, and then we work with you to create a custom plan that drives your revenue.

for brands

The sales reps you work with as a brand are an extension of your culture.  We work hard to understand your values, and your products so that we can be an extension of your team.  You need product geeks that will learn your gear inside and out, take it to market, and expand your footprint in our territory.
