CARBONDALE, CO (Dec, 2, 2009) â€“ Icelantic Boards, one of the fastest-growing independent ski makers in the country, has retained b2,inc. of Carbondale, Colorado to handle public relations efforts. Icelantic Boards will partner with b2,inc. to help promote its products and convey its unique corporate story.
â€œWe’ve been approached by several PR companies over the past few years but b2 has the best fit in regards to industry knowledge, established relationships and an overall understanding of our company’s objectives and vision,â€ says Annalise Lovelie, director of Icelantic’s global sales and marketing. â€œWe’re super excited to see the repercussions of our synergies.â€
Denver, Colo.-based Icelantic, founded in an Evergreen garage in 2005 by 23-year-old entrepreneur Ben Anderson, is now leaving a firm track in the snowsports industry with five models of all-mountain skis.
