O’Neill Snow presents the addition of Jack Schindler and Jimmy Adams to its sales and marketing team. The original California surf, snow, and youth lifestyle brand invented the world’s first neoprene wetsuit and continues to be an innovator in style and technology as it continues to grow and lead the way in action sports apparel and accessories.

Schindler will serve as the new national sales manager and supervise U.S. sale teams for all O’Neill Snow apparel and accessories, as well as manage accounts in California, Colorado, and Utah. Before joining O’Neill, Schindler was the Western Region Sales Manager for C1rca and Axion footwear, worked with the Earth Products Company, and was a manager of major markets for Planet Earth and Holden Snow outerwear as well as Adio footwear.

Schindler says, “This is a position that’s perfectly suited for my passion in outdoor sports and I’m eager to take O’Neill’s snow brand to the next level. I’m really looking forward to expanding awareness around the O’Neill Snow collections in the U.S. market, and generating greater exposure and opportunities for us.”

Jimmy Adams will be a key supporter for Schindler’s team as well as oversee O’Neill Snow marketing programs in the U.S. and Canada. Adams has worked for Empire Sports, Zoo York, and Echo Unltd.

“With these recent hires, we have landed two experts in the action sports and fashion worlds who will help us spread the word about our full line of snow products across both the U.S. and Canada. It’s an exciting time for the brand as we really look to make our mark on these regions with retailers and consumers,” said Leonard Marcovitch, President of O’Neill Snow.
