Podium Distribution has expanded both its walls and its employee base. The company recently acquired the 21,000-square-foot office space adjacent to its current address.
“Since our move here in 2000, weve added tons of new employees,” said VP Brian Dunlap. “Taking over the new building has allowed us to re-create that nice workspace we had before.”
In addition to the new offices, the company has allotted a 4,800-square-foot area to serve as its skateboard training facility. “Were stoked to finally have a great place for our riders to come and skate,” said DVS Skate Team Manager Gabe Clement.
Along with its new space, Podium has also brought on several new employees to fill key roles within the company: Erik Ecklund will serve as Domestic Sales Manager overseeing the breadth of US sales for both DVS and Lakai, Federico Vitetta will serve as Team Manager for Lakai, and Chad Heit will oversee Podiums newly created apparel development team serving as Apparel Merchandising Director.
