2013 Canadian Rep of the Year


Dan Anderson

I started in this business through my passion for snowboarding which led me to take a ski resort and operations program in college. After College I started working in retail at a couple of different levels. Then about 12 years ago started working with a small Canadian distributor selling eye wear skateboards and other accessories.  In 2003/04 I Officially opened Kingpin Agencies, over the past 10 years it has been an amazing journey growing with great brands and developing amazing relationships with all of my retail partners.  The Agency got a boost of energy about 5 years ago when I brought on Jay Nielsen to help me continue to grow and evolve to where the agency is today.

Here are the brands we Represent:
Capita Snowboards
Union Binding Company
Coal Headwear
Vans (Alberta)

It is amazing to be named the 2013 Manitoba Regional Rep of the year, Being voted in by our shop partners make it especially sweet. Thanks everyone for you're continued support!

"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
