Gary’s extensive sales experience makes him equipped to achieve the needs of Ruff

â€œGary is joining us with a long track record of success in sales management, including
eighteen years at Nike. I look forward to drawing upon his experience,â€ states Will Blount Ruff Wear’s Vice-President. Blount continues, â€œWe’re thrilled to have Gary as a member of the pack. His business development skills and knowledge of retail make him ideal for our fast growing company.â€
Flash, as his friends call him, served as a member of Nike’s U.S. and International sales management teams. Following Nike, he was the National Sales Manager for a successful start up division of Intel Corporation. Most recently Gary worked as a sales and marketing consultant to a variety of innovative Pacific Northwest up companies. Throughout his career Gary has focused his efforts on such critical business development factors as sales and business planning, organizational development, retail channel development, forecasting and sales training and development programs.
â€œI am excited by the opportunity of joining such a dynamic, exciting company possessing many of the same qualities that have made both Nike and Intel great Brands: great people, performance based products, a customer centric mindset and a commitment to creating and sustaining a strong social and environmental conscious. One has to be enthused when you work in a company such as Ruff Wear, where you can look forward to going to work everyday,â€ states Gary.
