In preparation for the fall/winter 2006 selling season, Kayland has added two new sales reps to its US sales team. Gary Bryden will represent Kayland in the Northwest, while Brad Eckert will handle sales in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware. Gary has been a manufacturers sales rep to the Outdoor Industry since 1984, and has excellent relationships with many of the best retailers in the Northwest. Brad also brings over 20 years of direct sales experience to the Kayland team, the last 15 years of which he has been an independent sales rep for several footwear brands including J-41, Naot-Elle, and Columbia.

“Both of these guys are true professionals and should provide Kayland with a foothold from which to grow our business in their respective markets,” said Brent Merriam, Vice President for Kayland North America.
