Is it a sales rep? A tech rep? An inventory manger? Maybe a regional marketing coordinator? Yes! The Frontier Group Road Warrior is all of these. Brands have had people in the field representing them for years; but to our knowledge, never has a Rep Agency invested in a brand specialist who travels their entire territory looking for new accounts, educating existing ones, counting stock, writing at once orders and telling all about his adventures online via social media! The Road Warrior is unique, one of kind and ready to take the rep world to a whole new level.
â€œWe felt that with so much territory to cover and the increased demands of our territory reps, we needed someone on the ground and in the stores all the time. We need to do more to help our customers and brands be successful in this competitive marketplace. Having a true retail consultant that is supporting our territory reps will add incredible value to our business. Communicating what he has learned back to us and our brands will be key in our ability to react and provide the stores more of what they need! â€œ- Scott Ohsman, Principal of Frontier Group
Frontier Group’s first Road Warrior is Dayne Malloy. Dayne comes from a long-line of sales reps and was recently with one the largest agencies in the mid-west. Dayne is currently on his first road trip where he traveled from Seattle down to Bend to work with Frontier’s Oregon rep Jennifer Eggleston.
â€œMountainsmith continues to be impressed by the supplemental services provided by our Pacific NW sales agency, the Frontier Group. Scott Ohsman, John Morioka and their team offer a full complement of sales, marketing, and administrative services that allow them to maximize our opportunities in the region and create great relationships with our retail partners. The Road Warrior program is just the next step in the evolution and will allow the Frontier Group to exponentially increase their face time in retail stores, helping to spread the word of our brand, educate both consumers and retail associates and most importantly, drive sell through for our retailers. We applaud the Frontier Group this move and look forward to supporting their efforts in 2013 and beyond!â€ â€“ Jay Getzel Sales Manager Mountainsmith
