Ignik announced it has added three new employees to its team—Ryan Flynn has been named the director, Global Sales; Brandon Ramirez joins as director, Art & Creative; and Andrew Lovejoy comes on as its customer service and fulfillment coordinator.
- Ryan Flynn brings years of experience in technology sales and business management, including more than six years managing global sales for Johnson Outdoors brands Jetboil, Eureka!, Old Town Canoe and Ocean Kayak.
- Brandon Ramirez joins the Ignik team after 19 years in the outdoor industry. Ramirez got his start with Ride Snowboards and has since owned two design agencies where he worked with a wide range of outdoor brands including DC Snowboards, Evil Bikes, Outdoor Research, and Arcade Belts.
- Andrew Lovejoy brings nearly a decade of experience working in physical education, including three years managing an outdoor PE program for middle school students. A native of Bainbridge Island, Lovejoy looks forward to applying the communication and problem-solving skills he’s learned from years of teaching and coaching to Ignik’s customer service.
“As we continue to grow, it’s critical to bring on the right people to take Ignik to the next level,” said founder and CEO Graeme Esarey. “I couldn’t be more excited about Ryan, Brandon and Andrew. While each of them comes to us with a completely different professional background, there’s an important common thread—a lifelong passion for the outdoors and a drive to make a lasting positive impact on the environment.”
