Eagle Creek Promotes Kevin Carr To Director Of Sales

August 11, 2005

In bolstering its sales infrastructure to manage growth projections, Eagle Creek has promoted Kevin Carr to Director of Sales.

Carr, a nine-year Eagle Creek veteran, most recently served as the company's Director of International Sales. He has assumed new key account responsibilities including managing U.S. outdoor and luggage retail channel sales, as well as all Canada and international licensees (except for Europe). 

In his new role, Carr reports to the Vice President of Sales. Along with Carr's promotion, Eagle Creek has restructured its sales team so that both its domestic and international sales staff team up to become one cohesive unit with global perspective.

"Kevin is very much in touch with the Eagle Creek customer and he's a master of conveying our brand story," said Eagle Creek Vice President of Sales Michael Millenacker. "With our business expanding, we're adding the firepower we'll need to handle new opportunities. Kevin earned this promotion because he's demonstrated the leadership and expertise needed to help maximize our company's growth potential."
