Eagle Creek is proud to announce it has chosen Brandywine River Representatives LLC as 2013 Rep Agency of the Year.


“This group embodies the word teamwork,” stated Gabriel Artalejo, Eagle Creek National Sales Manager. “Brandywine consistently supports its retailers by looking for ways to maximize growth opportunities and minimize any competitive limitations. They are a champion for our retail partners and a true asset to the Eagle Creek brand.”

Owned by Andy Molter, Brandywine River Reps has been representing Eagle Creek since 2001, this is the second time they have received the honor. The agency team includes Justin Lannan, Jamie Baker and Jen Randolph. The group directs sales in Mid-Atlantic States, including Metro NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, WV, and VA. Brandywine also represents complimentary outdoor brands, Exofficio, Vasque footwear, Katadyn NA, Berghaus, and Nikwax.

Awarded annually, the Eagle Creek Agency of the Year Award is an opportunity for Eagle Creek to recognize a rep or agency who delivers outstanding results along with superior customer service. Brandywine was selected on its overall consistent and strong business planning and sales growth to the travel category. Always inspired by travel, the Eagle Creek Rep of the Year award includes a trip for two to a dream destination, and 2013 is no exception: New Zealand.

All aspects of brand building are considered for this award, including but not limited to: in-store presentation, staff training, assortment planning, relationship building, sales growth and developing new business opportunities.

“We are both proud and humbled to have won the Rep of the Year award for Eagle Creek,” said Brandywine Owner, Andy Molter. “With the challenges we faced this year, it’s nice to know that we were able to keep our focus and do our jobs well. It’s also great that in the world of ‘shrinking’ resources, companies are still willing to invest and reward, which speaks highly of the brand and the commitment to their people.”
