Bite Footwear hired Julie Hasson as the Key Accounts Representative for the West Coast. In her new role, Hasson will oversee key accounts in the West Coast territory as well as help Bite Footwear merchandise its specially designed footwear for women. Hasson is a seasoned sales executive in the footwear and sporting goods industries and formerly held senior sales positions at Columbia Sportswear Company, Nordstrom and LA GEAR.

“Julie has proven over the years that she knows how to exceed expectations of her clients,” says Dale Bathum, owner and founder of Bite Footwear. “She is one of the most motivated professionals we have come across in our line of business. We are also thrilled to have Julie’s merchandising expertise on board as we focus on growing our women’s category of footwear.”

For Hasson, she believes her outdoor lifestyle growing up in the Northwest will serve her well in her new Bite culture. “I am very excited to be a new member of the Bite team and look forward to contributing to the company’s next level of success,” says Hasson. “I am really impressed by how the current team has taken a small market niche – comfort golf sandals – and developed a full line of footwear incorporating their comfort story as demonstrated by the Orthosport, Golf & Travel, Running and Fishing categories.”
