2013 US Rep of the Year

Northeast (ME/ VT/ NH/ MA/ RI/ CT)

Matt Jagemann

Approximately 20 years ago I decided to take on a role as a snowboard sales rep.  I had pulled many years prior at a snowboard shop in Portsmouth NH called Slackers and working as a sub rep for Wayne Dills at the same time.  Then came the time to go it alone and I picked up Santa Cruz snowboards as my first line.  Quickly thereafter picking up and shifting around brands such as Mission Six, Nikita clothing, Fallen Footwear, Neff Headwear, Sole Technology, Forum Snow, Special Blend, and Foursquare Outerwear to name a few.  This has led to where we are now currently in 2014 representing Burton Snowboards, Anon Goggles and Helmets, Analog Outerwear, Skullcandy, MIZU, Hitcase and Xsories. 

It is hard to plan on anything within this industry, so I learned to plan on the unexpected.  I have had the opportunity and honor to work with great companies and retailers throughout the years.  All of which contributed to my experience within this industry and taught me something new to better the future of my business.  These companies and retailers have all taught me to continually keep challenging myself and never settle for the status quo.  In return, we dedicate our commitment to these companies who have given us the opportunity to represent their sales in New England as well as promising top shelf service and support for each and every one of our retailers.

I am honored to have received this award.   It’s an amazing industry filled with amazing people and memorable times.  I have met so many friends and colleagues that have shaped my perception of life.  I wouldn’t trade it for the world and consider myself lucky to be a part of such a great industry.  It is truly rewarding to give back to the industry that has given me so much over the years.  It’s not what we do, but why we do it everyday that keeps us motivated, passionate and professional.

It must be noted that White Flag’s success is not a lone effort.  I could not do it alone nor choose to do so.  Huge thanks goes out to my White Flag Sales team: Cassandra Madsen, Chris Clark, Ryan Manning, Erin Blaisdell, and Joey Siciliano.  This crew has believed in my goals and expectations, season after season, and I thank them for that.  They have done an amazing job and I am looking forward to many more years ahead with the crew.

Working the New England scene many years now, I consider it a small family.  My retailers and our affiliated companies are extended families to the White Flag Sales team. If there is something that my Dad taught me, it was to never let family down.   With the biggest family of all in mind…snowboarding, and how we here at White Flag Sales will never let snowboarding down, not on our watch.

"The SIA Snow Show is the best time of the year! You get to see all the new technology coming out, you get to see all the sales reps you have relationships with, and then right around the corner you get to test everything out at the On-Snow Demo at Copper." Katy Graul, Ski Brokers, Fraser, CO
"For me, the Show is so much more than just a product presentation, it's a true breeding ground for ideas and inspiration. The forums, the marketing information, and the opportunities for retailers like me to network with each other has become a major feature for me." Teddy Schiavoni, Summit Ski Shop, Framingham, MA
"It's the place to go to see as many manufacturing companies as you can see under one roof at one time. It’s the latest and greatest of everything that’s going to be coming through the stores in the next six to eight months. I think people do a disservice to themselves by not going." Susan Woody, sales rep, Turtle Fur
"This Show is so important because it's the preview for what’s to come; it's the big picture. You can talk to the people that are in sales, product development, we can tell you plans for next year as well as help retailers with their buy so they become informed and make better decisions for their business." Ryan Green, Nordic Division Manager, Rossignol
"From an international perspective, I can see that the whole US snow sports industry is truly a community. Everybody's here and you can see that it's a family." Sigi Rumphuber, Product Designer/Engineer, G3
"This whole business is based on relationships, so if you don’t get that face to face time it's difficult to continue those relationships or build new ones. And of course we have to be at the Show because it gives a chance for everyone to see the full line, and to talk about any problems or potential opportunities." Josh Roberts, VP, Nitro Snowboards
