KENT, WASHINGTON (November 4, 2015) — Sherpa Adventure Gear, a Himalayan inspired adventure gear company, announced today that it has hired Noel Lemke to represent them in Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana.
Noel comes to Sherpa as a seasoned representative working in the past with both Nordica and Swix Nordic gear.
