Amer Sports is taking the next step in its integration efforts after acquiring Salomon and its subsidiary businesses from adidas late last year. In an effort to strengthen Amer Sports presence and to develop its business in the largest winter & outdoor market in the world, the U.S., Amer Sports has decided to consolidate Amer Sports Winter & Outdoor America business under one manager.

Mike Dowse, who has been with Amer for 16 years will head up the new division in the newly created position of GM of Amer Sports Winter & Outdoor Americas. He will start his new role in early September and will be responsible for planning and creating a single platform for sales, marketing, operations and administration for the Salomon, Atomic and Suunto brands in the USA.
