Burlington, WA. Eddyline Kayaks has hired Three Mountain Associates (“TMA”), a specialty outdoor product sales and marketing firm, as the company’s Northeastern US sales agency. Led by industry veteran Tom McCarthy, TMA adds Eddyline to its strong line-up of brands, including Osprey Packs, Leki, Grayl, MTI Lifejackets and Pelican International.
“The strengths of our group lie in our diversity of experience cemented together by common passions and a shared commitment to our customers and vendors.” explains Tom McCarthy. “Our combined experiences run the gamut from small independent storefronts to multi-national corporations, and we bring that broad point of view to every interaction.”
The addition of TMA comes at a pivotal time for Eddyline. The 48-year-old company transitioned from being founder to management-owned and operated less than two years ago, and since then has experienced explosive growth in sales and production.
“The Northeast US is our principal focus for growth in terms of increasing customer sell-through and adding key retailers where needed,” said Tom Remsing, Eddyline Co-owner and VP of Sales & Marketing. “I’ve had profound respect for Tom McCarthy and his team for many years and all of us at Eddyline are thrilled to have them on our team. I have no doubt our partnership with TMA will lead to further growth in the Northeast.
