BEND, OR and BOULDER, CO (Nov 14, 2023) — La Sportiva, makers of the world’s finest mountain gear, welcomes Seymour Sales Group as their new sales representatives in the Pacific Northwest. This partnership is championed by the dynamic team of Thomas Seymour, Abby Seymour, and Carleigh Garrett, who collectively bring decades of experience and a profound enthusiasm for outdoor sports to La Sportiva’s legacy in the region.
“We feel fortunate to join the La Sportiva family,” said Abby Seymour. “It’s not just about the company’s fantastic gear; it’s about aligning ourselves with a company that mirrors our passions, values, and commitment to pushing the boundaries within the climbing, trail, and alpine communities. The brand’s involvement in conservation efforts and their championing of climbing access rights speaks volumes about their ethos, and we’re here for it.”
With dual headquarters in Bend, OR, and Bellingham, WA, SSG is ideally situated to engage with over 170 key accounts across the Pacific Northwest. Abby and Thomas have more than twenty years of combined sales experience and a deep connection to the climbing, trail, and skiing communities. Carleigh, the team’s newest member, brings a versatile skill set gained over seven years in the outdoor and ski industries, with expertise in apparel, footwear, and hardgoods.
“Our expertise is rooted in authentic experience with the gear we represent,” explains Thomas. “We don’t just know the gear because we sell it — we understand its ins and outs because we use it.”
“Bringing SSG on board aligns perfectly with our vision for growth and community engagement in the Pacific Northwest,” said Jonathan Lantz, President of La Sportiva North America. “Their team’s expertise and active participation in outdoor sports are exactly what La Sportiva needs to help bring our products to a wider audience in the region.”
