The Otter Company People: East Region Sales Team Expands, Adding Two Golf Industry Veterans
Birmingham, Mich., August 23, 2012 - American apparel maker The Otter Company is pleased to announce the additions of industry veterans Tommy Thompson and Bert Atkinson to its premier team of independent sales representatives.
Tommy Thompson brings decades of experience in golf soft goods to his northern Michigan territory, home to courses designed by some of the game's top architects and one of the country's top golf destinations. He will focus on new account development for the Otter Company collection throughout the region.
Bert Atkinson brings a wealth of entrepreneurial insight, experience with major golf brands, and a successful amateur career to his territory in Charleston S.C. He is a seven-time winner of the Charleston Men's Amateur Golf Championship, and he is very enthusiastic about representing the Otter Company collection.
"The Otter Company collection gives golf retail buyers the opportunity to bring an outerwear line into their shop that is unique, and very special," Atkinson said. "The Otter Company line will meet the needs and demands of customers, and provides shops with merchandise that separates them from the 'big box' stores."
"We are very enthusiastic about Tommy and Bert joining our team," said Martin Stebbins, The Otter Company founder and President. "The experience and insight they bring will help us increase market share in two important regions in our industry; and that experience and insight also will be valuable to our customers, as they selectively expand their product offerings."
Customers in the respective territories can contact Tommy Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org
and Bert Atkinson at email@example.com
Designed for active adults, The Otter Company collection includes a comprehensive selection of garments for varying weather conditions, ranging from the $79 light-duty Storm Fleece and Francestown series, to the $219 fully weather protective Play-Through series.

About The Otter Company
The Otter Company, headquartered in Birmingham, Mich., designs, manufactures and markets comfortable, technical and ecologically sensitive outerwear for sports people. We maximize playtime and extend sessions and seasons with garments that allow play earlier in the spring, later in the fall and in any inclement weather.
Inspired by the otter, whose fur is the thickest in the animal kingdom and is constructed in layers to trap air, generate warmth, and keep the skin dry - the otter is comfortable at play in any climate. Otter garments emulate this brilliant natural design and the spirit of the otter - its playfulness, its freedom, and its willingness to continue to enjoy itself when the weather is less than ideal. We say, "Whatever the weather. Keep playing. Stay comfortable." It's the otter's way, and The Otter Company's pledge. www.theottercompany.com
