Rich Hill Now Working for a "Real Outdoor Company"

We like Rich Hill. He's not a conformer. He shoots straight and tells it like it is. He said of Ibex that they are a "real outdoor company"...as compared to...?

Interesting move that he's making after a year of testing the outdoor industry job pool. Rich is the new president of Ibex, a Vermont based merino wool clothing brand. But moving, literally, he is not. Ibex is opening an "Ibex West" office in Ventura, California where Rich lived while working at Patagonia as the VP of Sales.

It will be interesting to see if the long distance love afair will prove to be effective for Ibex and if the east/west idea spawns new developments for the clothing brand that has been growing at a steady rate. Rich isn't showing his cards just yet.
