— Buff, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Original Buff, SA, creators of versatile performance headwear for all-season outdoor enthusiasts and athletes, are pleased to announce the addition of Kevin Walker as Marketing Manager to Buff, Inc.

Walker joins the BUFF® team after a four-year tenure at Marmot where he most recently oversaw development of brand content as Brand Activation Manager, management of Brand Marketing and Merchandising for Marmot Flagship stores and Key Account partners, as well as management of Trade Shows. In his initial role as Brand & Retail Marketing Manager, Walker focused on design of retail stores and the implementation of brand experience. Prior to his time at Marmot, Walker spent seven years at Under Armour, climbing the ranks from Sales Lead Account Coordinator to Outdoor Marketing Manager, before moving on to Marmot in 2013.

Buff, Inc. General Manager Shirley Brunetti says, “Kevin has a proven track record of sales and marketing prowess, and brings a youthful yet forward-thinking strategy to our ever-evolving brand. With the addition of our buffed-up tech and lifestyle cap lines for Spring ‘18, and our patented cold weather technology ThermoNet™, new for Fall ‘17, we are looking forward to Kevin tapping into his robust background in the outdoors, and his impressive social media and marketing skills, to enable our customers full appreciation and understanding of not only our exciting new products, but our flagship collections.”

Walker has a Bachelor of Business Administration from Ohio University, a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Dayton, and attended Rocky Mountains National Outdoor Leadership School, perfectly placing him within the outdoors sports realm that BUFF® has successfully led in the accessories market since 1992. A lover of fly fishing, snowboarding, travel, camping, wood-working and photography, Walker is a well-suited and much welcomed addition to the BUFF® family, and will continue to drive awareness and education surrounding BUFF® products, technologies, ambassadors, social programs and more.
