Joe Decker is retiring from Tecnica/Blizzard after 34 years as its sales
rep in Colorado. Jeff Sale was appointed to the position of
Tecnica/Blizzard sales representative for Colorado. Most recently Sale
served as North American director of sales for Spyder Clothing.

Decker’s contribution to the company during his many years of service was acknowledged by Giancarlo Zanatta, Chairman and CEO of The Tecnica Group, “Joe was instrumental in positioning Tecnica as the leading performance ski boot brand in the U.S. His efforts are greatly appreciated and I would like to personally thank him for his dedication to our company over the past 3 decades.”

In celebration of Decker’s service to Tecnica, he and his wife Kathie will be celebrating his retirement from the company at the international headquarters in Giavera del Montello, Italy this summer with the Zanatta family and other members of the international management team. The U.S. team will also be celebrating Decker’s retirement this summer.

For the 18 years prior to Spyder, Sale was the Colorado territory manager for Salomon North America managing sales of all Salomon product categories. In addition to his work within Colorado, Sale also served as national key accounts manager at Salomon, overseeing business with many of the national chains and key accounts. His extensive experience and relationships in Colorado prepare him well to continue the momentum of the Tecnica and Blizzard brands.
