In order to expand its snowsports collection “Whiteline” for winter 2011, Canadian outdoor specialist Arc’teryx has hired Eric Schierl as new Sales Manager for the winter sports business in Europe. The 39-year-old French has been responsible for Eider and Killy as a Sales Manager since 2006. As Sales Manager, Eric Schierl is responsible for all of Europe, supporting the Arc’teryx sales force and agencies. A new 110sqm Arc’teryx showroom in Annecy, close to the Mont-Blanc area, is his office and home base.

Compared to other North American Brands, Europe is a very strong market for Arc’teryx. The brand generates roughly 40% of the total turnover in Europe.
