Jackson, Wyo., May 2nd, 2016Croakies, the manufacturer of industry-leading outdoor retention products, is excited to announce its inaugural Everyday Adventurers team roster. The team, which is comprised of a select group of athletes and influential professionals from the outdoor, team sports, and water sports industries, along with a hand-picked group of influential consumers selected through Croakies digital application process, will offer an additional avenue for the brand to engage its ever-growing consumer base through organic digital content, product testing, and associated outreach opportunities.

The launching of the brand’s first ambassador program coincides with Croakies’ recent announcement of its multi-channel “Everyday Adventures” campaign, which Croakies describes as a campaign focused on, “celebrating the adventurer in all of us.”

In addition to supporting Croakies’ marketing efforts and representing the brand in their respective communities, Croakies’ Everyday Adventurers will help guide brand and product development through real-time product feedback and the use of Croakies’ wide range of products in support of their ongoing adventures.

“I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Croakies for the launch of their Everyday Adventurers program,” stated Josh Brown, NFL Pro Bowl Kicker with the New York Giants. “When I’m not playing football, I spend as much time as possible enjoying the outdoors – like taking my daughter camping in my newly restored ’68 Bronco – so teaming up to support a campaign devoted to celebrating everyday adventures, while putting Croakies’ great mix of products to the test, is a perfect fit.”
