Exxel expands team to support growth of US camping brands in Europe

Exxel Outdoors has added to its team to support the growth of American camping brands Kelty and Sierra Designs in the European camping market. Adrian French joins the company as its new sales support administrator for Europe and will assist UK and European country manager Damon Street to streamline and improve the sales and distribution of products throughout Europe.

Logistics operations have proved challenging with the recently introduced new Brexit regulations and this has affected the whole supply chain. Adrian will be employing his skills gained in other roles to improve the overall customer experience.

Damon said: “Customer Service is the foundation of this business. To achieve our goals, we need the right people. Adrian understands what our customers need from us and he’s a passionate outdoorsman. Strengthening the team demonstrates our ongoing commitment to supporting our growing sales here in the UK and Europe, we look forward to adding to our growing office in the coming months.”

In 2015, Exxel Outdoors and American Recreation Products merged to become the leading provider of high quality, innovative outdoor recreation products as well as being the largest sleeping bag company manufactured in the United States. Based in Boulder, Colorado, the company maintains a broad and growing range of authentic outdoor brands in equipment and apparel for the camping enthusiast to the alpine expedition mountaineer.
