In preparation for the upcoming retirement of Smartwool VP U.S. sales, Scott Bowers, the company has just announced two changes to its top management team. Corey Stecker, who was promoted to international general manager of sales and marketing last January, has been named global head of sales. Stecker has been with Smartwool since 2016. In his new role, he will be responsible for global wholesale and distribution channels, including the U.S., Canada, EMEA and emerging markets. Prior to Smartwool, he held various sales and marketing positions at The North Face Canada, Intrawest and Burton Snowboards. Smartwool’s new global head of e-commerce is Matt Etzler, who joined the company in 2020 as senior manager, e-commerce. In his new role, he will lead and develop the brand’s global digital commerce channels. These expanded roles assume the responsibilities of Bowers, who announced his intention to retire from the Colorado-based company in late June. Both Stecker and Etzler will report to Smartwool brand president Jen McLaren.
