Mudroom® Backpacks Welcomes New Mid Atlantic Sales Representative Mark Johnson

Mudroom® Backpacks Welcomes New Mid Atlantic Sales Representative Mark Johnson

by Tom Fritz February 01, 2018

Mudroom® Backpacks is pleased to introduce our new Mid-Atlantic sales representative Mark Johnson.  Mark will cover Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia and West Virginia.

Here's a bit about Mark in his own words:

"First, I am the proud husband of a very tolerant wife, father of two amazing young adults (son and daughter), and grandfather to a beautiful granddaughter.

My career in this Running Specialty business is in sync with my personal passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle. I began running competitively in high school and have continued to run ever since. I have included cycling into my fitness options as well. My competitive years connected me to Olympians, national and local running heroes. I represented the USA at the 2012 World Duathlon Championships in Spain.

My experience in Run Specialty started in retail in the late 70's. Eventually I entered the business as a sales representative in the Mid Atlantic region. From 1981 to the present I have worked for premier running specialty brands including NIKE, Reebok, Avia, and currently 361 Degrees Footwear. As an independent sales Rep I have also worked with sports nutrition companies (nuun hydration, GU energy), fitness apparel and accessory brands that complimented the Running Specialty channel.

I have developed rich and trusted relationships with my business customers. Many I consider friends and fellow ambassadors who promote a healthy lifestyle through running, cycling, hiking, and any activity that gets people moving and enjoying the outdoors. I also believe in being respectful to our Planet by practicing responsible behaviors that protect and sustain out outdoor playground.

 I am honored to bring a few years of experience to Mudroom Backpacks".

Rick Saez created The Outdoor Biz Podcast to be more than a venue solely for entertainment or passive listening while you kill time commuting to work or wait for a plane. The hope is these conversations are informative and a call to action. Whether you hear something you didn’t know about a close friend or colleague, learn about new business resources or find a way to support a cause close to your heart I hope you take action.
