Cloudveil Mountain Works, Inc. announced the hiring of Rich Weight as its new Director of Sales as well as the completion of its consolidation and expansion of offices in Jackson. Weight comes from Chaco, where he was the Director of Sales and active in the growth and brand development both nationally and internationally.
Global Brand VP and Co-Founder Stephen Sullivan states, â€œAfter an extensive search, we are extremely pleased to announce filling this key position with a candidate as strong as Rich. He brings skills in sales management and operations, specialty and key account business, as well as extensive international experience all gained from his tenure at Chaco. We are confident he will prove to be a strong leader for our burgeoning sales organization.â€ Sullivan continues, â€œWe really looked for someone who could help us manage our fast-paced growth in a balanced, focused and determined manner. Rich’s experience at Chaco, a company we view with high regard, meshed perfectly with our ideal and also importantly mirrors our mountain culture which was extremely important to us.â€
Weight adds, â€œ I am super excited to move to Jackson, join Cloudveil and assist in managing their continued growth. While it is sad leaving Chaco, the experience I have gained will enable me to help Cloudveil expand upon the strong foundation they have already built. The decision for this move is balanced by future opportunity and a debt of gratitude to Mark Paigen and the very capable team that remains at Chaco.â€
The addition of Weight furthers Cloudveil’s consolidation effort at their newly remodeled and expanded Jackson, Wyoming headquarters and bolsters the already strong sales team currently in place. Several key sales employees relocated to Jackson from Denver this spring including Sales Manager Dave Mahoney, Specialty Sales Coordinator Jenn Roberts, Customer Service Supervisor KC Jones and Customer Service Rep Stacy Marcus. Additionally, two newly created Sales Associate roles have been implemented with Adam Van Sickle promoted from CS group and new hire Maura Kearney .
