Blizzard-Tecnica, a global leader in alpine equipment development and manufacturing, is pleased to announce the appointment of ski industry veteran, Geoff Curtis, as the new National Sales Manager. In this role, Curtis will lead Blizzard-Tecnica’s team of independent sales reps toward further growth for the brands.
“Blizzard-Tecnica has a strong reputation in the ski industry, and I am excited to join this dynamic team,” said Curtis. “I am looking forward to leveraging my experience to contribute to the continued success and growth of these iconic brands.”
This move is a full-circle moment for Curtis, who after competing in Division I skiing at Middlebury College, started his career at the former distributor of Blizzard Skis in 1993. Since then, Curtis has immersed himself in the hardgoods world from regional promotions with Tecnica/Volkl to marketing at Volkl, most recently as the VP of Marketing at Marker Volkl Dalbello.
“We are really excited to welcome Geoff to the Blizzard-Tecnica team. I am confident that Geoff’s comprehensive experience and fresh perspective will be invaluable to Blizzard-Tecnica, our reps, and our retail partners,” said Topher Plimpton, Blizzard-Tecnica Business Unit Director.
When Curtis is not at work or on snow, he spends his time with family members in New Hampshire and Montana, mountain biking, playing golf and enjoying time outdoors.
