ALBANY, NEW YORK (January 28, 2014) – PrimaLoft (, the world leader in comfort solutions and high-performance insulations and fabrics, is saying goodbye to Joe Rumiesz, vice president of operations and a 16-year company veteran and outdoor industry friend. Rumiesz is retiring on March 2.

“Joe has been the driving force behind PrimaLoft’s success,” said Mike Joyce, PrimaLoft CEO.” His business and technological expertise, along with the great team he assembled, established PrimaLoft as a leader in the outdoor community. There is no question PrimaLoft would not be the strong, growing independent company it is today without his love for the brand and his wise guidance. We will miss his insights, his collaboration and his partnership, and we wish him and his wife Mary well.” 

Since he joined PrimaLoft, Rumiesz has been involved with every facet of the business, including product development, brand partnerships, marketing and sales. He will be transitioning his projects and duties to other team members over the next several weeks.

“We can’t say enough about Joe,” said Greg Thomsen, managing director of adidas Outdoor U.S., PrimaLoft brand partner. “Joe is the epitome of a brand ambassador and partner. Whenever we’ve needed PrimaLoft’s support, he has always been there for us. We wish him the best of luck.”
