Plymouth, MA— July 18, 2018 — MTI Life Jackets has strengthened their sales coverage in the Northeast with the hire of the Three Mountain Associates rep group. Led by industry veteran Tom McCarthy, Three Mountain Associates adds MTI to its strong line-up of Outdoor brands, including Osprey, Leki, and Pelican.

 “The strengths of our group lie in our diversity of experience and shared commitment to our customers and vendors” explains Tom. “Our combined experiences run the gamut from small independent storefronts to multi-national corporations, and we bring that broad point of view to each and every interaction.” The Three Mountain Associates team is rounded out by Jon Conti in the Mid-Atlantic and Southern New England, while Rob Scharges manages Northern New England and Upstate New York. Rob is no stranger to MTI Life Jackets. “Gordon and I, along with our Sales Director, Jim Travers, all worked with Rob years ago at Mad River Canoe when it was based in Waitsfield, VT” says Lili Colby, Chief PFDIVA at MTI. “It’s a little scary to have that much Paddlesports knowledge in one place. We joke that we’re putting the band back together!”

 The MTI customer service team is also bolstered with the addition of Lorisa White in their Plymouth headquarters. A former manager at Eastern Mountain Sports and a sales specialist at REI, Lorisa brings outdoor retail experience to her role helping customers with their orders and supporting the sales efforts of the expanded MTI sales team. “We’re excited to welcome these qualified, passionate Outdoor Industry professionals to our team,” said Jim Travers, Director of Sales with MTI. “with Lorisa supporting the sales efforts of Jim Ramey in the Northwest and Three Mountain Associates in the Northeast, we believe we have the most knowledgeable team of sales people in the Paddlesports business.”

 MTI Life Jackets will be showing at Summer Outdoor Retailer, 360 Adventure Collective (formerly EORA) in Manchester, NH, Paddlesports Retailer, and Surf Expo.
