In her new role, Phelps will be responsible for working with Buck’s industry leading network of overseas distributors to support their efforts and identify new growth opportunities. In accordance to executing the international business plan she will outline action plans pertaining to sales, marketing and distribution strategies and travel to key markets to coordinate with Buck’s international partners. She will also work closely with Buck’s internal customer service, marketing and shipping departments to ensure the highest level of efficiencies for customers.
“I’m thrilled to join Buck Knives and be part of an exceptionally talented team,” Phelps said. “Exploring new opportunities in international markets on behalf of such an iconic brand is exciting.”
Silverberg adds, “Buck Knives has been exporting for over forty years and has a high level of brand awareness in global markets. Made in USA is one of our key advantages. Customers know that Buck delivers high quality, and with our country of origin stamped right on the blade, they know what they are getting. With new investments in our factory and continual product innovation, we are poised for additional growth in sales and market share.”
