One of our Reps Tim Parker, has been recognized as SIA Rep of the Year. Tim is a rep for Rossignal’s Alpine, Nordic, Snowboard and Apparel collections. I personally had the opportunity to work with Tim filming some product videos, real nice guy. Everyone from The House says congrats, keep it up. Anyway here’s what he had to say:
I grew up in a small town in central Minnesota. I attended college at the University of Minnesota Crookston where I first discovered snowboarding. From that time on I was focused on working in the winter sports industry.
After UMC I moved to Minneapolis and started a part time job at Hoigaard’s selling winter sports equipment. That opportunity turned into a full time position where I sold alpine skis, snowboards and custom fit ski boots. In the off season I sold bicycles and cycling equipment. Finally, I became the snowboard buyer for Hoigaard’s.
In 1994 I began working for Rossignol as an independent snowboard representative responsible for the Great Lakes Territory. In 2005 I formed an Agency representing the Rossignol’s Alpine, Nordic, Snowboard, and Apparel collections.
Working in the winter sport industry has given me the pleasure of meeting and working with many great people – retailers, suppliers, consumers, and athletes. I am truly grateful for your friendship, counsel, and business.
I would like to thank the retailers and suppliers for all their support. I’m very grateful to receive this award.
