Fischer Skis restructures US Staff

Fischer Skis has recently restructured it’s Alpine division after the departure of Erik Anderson, who had been with the ski maker since 2007 as the National Sales Manager.

Anderson left Fischer to take on the role of Sales Director for Salomon USA Winter Sports Equipment and oversee the company’s alpine and Nordic ski equipment categories.

Fischer, an Austrian owned company with US headquarters in Auburn, NH will immediately begin the search for an Alpine National Sales Manager 

Matt Berkowitz (Director of Alpine Marketing&Product), who has been with the company since 2003, will take over some of Anderson’s responsibilities so the new Alpine Sales Manager can focus on increasing sales and market share for the brand by working closely with the sales force and retailers.

Both Chris Smith and Pearson Neal were also recently promoted. Smith will continue to work out of Park City, UT with the title of Promotions and Product Development, while Neal will continue to work out of the New Hampshire office as the National Alpine Race Coordinator.

“This new structure makes the most sense for the brand, especially with the momentum we have right now with our Vacuum Boot Technology,” said Berkowitz. “I’m also excited to be working closer with Chris and Pearson moving forward. They bring a lot to the table for the brand as they both possess a diverse set of skills and a deep passion for the wintersports industry.”
