Sport Obermeyer has just made a great decision in hiring Linda Rodney as the brands national sales director. Rodney has years of experience in the snow sports industry, most recently at Burton Snowboards. While at Burton, she led sales efforts for the RED and ANON brands, growing preseason and reorder sales during a period of rapid growth. Prior to Burton, Rodney held positions at Smith Optics from 1996-2009 as the western regional sales manager, central regional sales manager and national sales manager and continually exceeded sales goals each year.
“I am honored to begin a new chapter with a company so rich in heritage,” said Linda Rodney. “I have always been inspired by Klaus Obermeyer and look forward to being a part of the brand’s continued success. As the national sales director Rodney will be responsible for the direction and management of all sales and business development, including analysis of markets, competitors, pricing, and distribution strategy.
With an extreme passion for the ski industry and lifestyle, she and her family will reside in Aspen, Colorado. Sounds like a great gig for her, and for her family who will be near some of the greatest snow resorts on the planet!
