Tulsa, Oklahoma (November 13, 2013): Distributed worldwide, GoFit continues its momentum as one of the nation’s leading fitness product and education suppliers by announcing Mark Ish as their new Executive Vice President of Sales. An accomplished sales veteran with leadership experience in marketing and business development, Ish has developed a proven track record both internationally and domestically with several of the most recognized retail brands in the industry.
Before joining GoFit, Ish spent the past two years as Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Trigger Point Performance, where he was recently named to the SGB “40 Top Sporting Goods Executives Under Age 40” by SportsOneSource in April 2013, a prestigious honor that recognizes trailblazers within the sporting goods industry.
