As of July 2010, the Switzerland-based European operations of Black Diamond have three sales managers to intensify work in Europe. All three appointments come from within the company.
David Ledouble has been sales manager for Europe since 2005 and will now focus on southern Europe. Sebastian Weiche, former manager at Scarpa, joined Black Diamond in 2008 to run the internal customer service. He will oversee the sales force in the German-speaking countries.
Bill Crouse is new in European operations. He came over from the U.S. headquarters where he was international sales manager in charge of the whole world apart from North America and Europe. He is now responsible for sales in eastern and northern Europe.
