Ibex Hires Nancy Andrews as New England Merino Pusher

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, VT (April 2, 2012) — Ibex Outdoor Clothing hires Nancy Andrews as an independent sales representative for New England to spread the message of wool across the states of New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

A 30-year veteran of the outdoor industry, Andrews was co-founder of the outdoor specialty retail shop Wild River Outfitters. Located just up the road from Ibex in Waitsfield, VT, Andrews has been an independent sales rep for the past 17 years with experience selling paddlesports gear, hard goods, Nordic ski, footwear, and soft goods.

“Ibex could not be more excited to be adding Nancy Andrews to our sales team,” said Ben Saunders, sales manager for Ibex. “Her experience, professionalism, and contagious positive attitude are exactly what we were looking for, but what really set Nancy apart was the overwhelming votes of confidence from our retailers and industry professionals. With the current momentum and growth of the Ibex brand, we felt it was important to have someone with solid existing relationships in New England. We are thrilled to add a rep of Nancy’s caliber,” he added.

“I am psyched to be a part of the Ibex team,” Andrews said. “I feel that natural wool products are on the cutting edge and ideal for the outdoors and everyday use. As a New England-based company, Ibex satisfies the localvores and offers a compelling, natural, sustainable story. Ibex’s commitment to domestic production is also a tremendous selling point.”

Inspired by the Art of Wool and making converts daily, Ibex sales representatives are an essential part of the company’s continued success. Often considered unsung heroes, Ibex sales reps are hard working, determined, and always on the move. Check out Ibex’s three-part video series: On the Road with an Ibex Rep here.
