Outdoor Sports Marketing (OSM) has hired Mackey OConnor Leitch as office manager for its Hendersonville, NC showroom. OSM is a manufacturers representative for Chaco, MSR, Osprey, Platypus, Prana, Smartwool, Therm-A-Rest and Vasque in the Southeastern United States.


Mackey joined OSM in mid-March after four years as operations manager of the local outdoor specialty shop, Diamond Brand Outdoors. Mackeys experience running operations for a premier Grassroots Outdoor Alliance member made him an ideal candidate to join the OSM team. Former experience as a summer camp program director and then an events manager for Coca-Cola cemented his added-value experience of coordinating and leading.
As office manager, Mackey keeps the Hendersonville NC showroom running smoothly, supports the traveling sales force, and serves as the first point of contact for the office. Mackeys organization and support have been incredible assets, empowering the OSM team to focus more on their sales and service goals this season.

From day one, Mackey looked at our office and operations with a fresh perspective, said Cullen Mann, sales and marketing coordinator.

Mackeys energy, ideas, and accountability to execute made him an invaluable member of the office team immediately.
We are looking forward to Mackeys continued growth within the agency, said Rion Smith, co-owner of Outdoor Sports Marketing. Mackeys role is continuing to evolve as he interacts with our customers and vendors more. He is easily transitioning from service to sales support. His focus on customer service and office efficiencies is inspiring all of us.
