TEKO, the high-performance socks producer, said Rich Weight has joined the company as director of sales. Most notably, Weight served as director of sales for both Cloudveil and Chaco.

“Things are happening very fast here at TEKO. We are very pleased to add a person of Rich’s talent and experience to the TEKO team”, said Chip Coe, CEO of TEKO. “Rich will focus on building the TEKO brand and strengthening key retail partnerships in the specialty outdoor channel which is where TEKO is focused.”

“I am excited to join the TEKO brand, a brand that produces great product, reflects my personal values, and has excellent growth potential”, said Weight.

In early January, outdoor industry veteran Coe joined TEKO as CEO and stockholder. Coe served as COO and president of SmartWool Corporation for seven years, before retiring from that company in late 2006.
