Astral said Kevin Mulligan joined its customer service team in June at it's headquarters in Asheville, NC.

Mulligan has worked with Astral on a part time basis since 2005 where he started on the factory floor, and has four years of experience selling Astral products at Diamond Brand Outdoors as a retail associate.  He is an experienced kayaker and raft guide here in the Southeast, and truly understands the culture of the paddling community.

“When you spend time with Kevin you will quickly realize his friendly demeanor and kindhearted approach to life are contagious,” said Astral’s Brand Manager Bryan Owen. “He makes our staff laugh and smile on a daily basis. These are exactly the traits that lead to amazingly satisfied customers.”

Mulligan lives in Asheville where he enjoys the abundant culture and outdoor recreation opportunities of Western North Carolina.
