The Oberalp Group has streamlined the distribution of its brands in the U.K. by appointing Angus McKendrick as U.K. sales manager. He will take care of all its brands except for Wild Country, which has been taken up by a territorial distributor, Beta Climbing Designs. McKendrick, who had previously worked as a sales rep for the group's Salewa and Dynafit brands, comes from Silva, which was previously distributed by Oberalp in certain countries. At Oberalp's British subsidiary, he takes the place of Ben Malcolm, who has moved to Ecco.
