2013 Canadian Rep of the Year


Stephan Dargis

It all started for me in March 1984.

     But before that  a was finishing university and working as  part time  in a ski shop call Andre Jac sports.

     At that time the agency you was doing Atomic Gilles Simard was looking for sub rep to represented all is other line and he decided to choose me.

     I was so excited 

     I was 21 years old at that time

     What a great challenge for me.

     In 1988 Gilles Simard decided to pursuit a other carrier and a that time Atomic Austria decide to open is own subsidiary.

    Monte crouch who was name the president of the company at that time decided to hire me.

   From 1988 to 1995 the company went true a lot internal change.

   And in 1995 Amer Finland bought Atomic worldwide.

  Since 1995 to today Amer still own  Atomic and l am so great full to work for such great organization like this.

What it means for me to  be name rep of the year.

    30 years of hard working plus working with great people  and working for the best ski brand in the world 

    The other thing that a enjoy the most of my job is the interaction beetween me and my dealer

    Plus the freedom that a got and the summer off

 That what l enjoy the most of my job.

"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
