Breckenridge, CO, Oct 11, 2012 -

Revolutionary technical apparel brand SeasonFive is announcing its partnerships with three new rep groups—Chad Johnston Outdoor in the Midwest, Aviddsports in the Northwest and Russ Gotzmer in the Southern Rockies.

Chad Johnston has 13 years of experience in the outdoor and cycling industries, and has been growing his rep business, especially within watersports distribution.  For SeasonFive, he is representing Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota.

“The Great Lakes region has a short warm season, but our outdoor athletes are looking to extend their seasons,” says Chad Johnston. “Being comfortable and dry are two of the advantages that SeasonFive offers. Smart retailers will see why they would want a longer selling season for their core categories. Selling everything in the category at margin for a longer period of time - that is a winning combo.”

Dave Jordan has been a leading sales rep in the outdoor industry for 17 years.  Based out of Park City, Utah, Jordan will cover his home state as well as Wyoming, Idaho and Montana, where cold water and hot days make SeasonFive the perfect fit for active outdoors participants.  

“I have been a rep in the outdoor industry and ski industry for quite a while and have recently enjoyed some of the rocketing success happening in the paddle sport industry,” says Dave Jordan. “In my career, I have been able to sell products for sports I’m super passionate about and I’ve focused on working with innovative brands that make great products.  That’s exactly why I’m so excited to be representing SeasonFive.”

Russ Gotzmer has been in the sporting goods industry for two decades, working with long-standing brands as well as startups.  Based in Vail, Colorado, Gotzmer handles all of Colorado, New Mexico and Texas for SeasonFive. 

“I have enjoyed a career defined by innovative solutions for the demanding sales landscape and SeasonFive is certainly a brand that matches this definition,” says Russ Gotzmer. “My goals are simply to realize an increased annual growth in sales for SeasonFive and establish a creative, focused sales path in my territory.”

Based in Breckenridge, CO, SeasonFive brings a new perspective to technical apparel concepts.  SeasonFive uses patent-pending Atmos 1.0, a waterproof and breathable fabric engineered to block outside elements while allowing vapor and heat to be released, and Atmos LT, a water resistant, 50+ UPF sunproof and completely breathable fabric that is is perfect for any outdoor activity. Born out of the search for better solutions, SeasonFive seeks to keep outdoor enthusiasts warmer, cooler, drier, more comfortable, protected and stronger.
