Effective immediately, Ames Adventure Outfitters will cover the North Central territory, and The Alpine Cowboy will cover the South Central territory.
â€œThese two territories continue to grow and contain some of the stronger independent retailers in the U.S. I’m excited to enter the Spring ’09 selling season with such strong rep groups on our team — and I’m happy for the buyers and shop employees in these territories to receive the unique support that Brian’s and Koby’s teams offer,â€ said John Pieper, Osprey’s sales director. â€œBoth Rep groups will help Osprey continue to strengthen our presence in the middle section of the country and will be a lot of fun to work with.â€
