Great Pacific Sales reps bring 41 years of outdoor industry knowledge and experience to the Ibex brand. In addition to Ibex, Great Pacific Sales also represents Marmot, ExOfficio, and Jambu footwear.

“Ibex has seen major growth in the wholesale market and the addition of Great Pacific Sales will only help us to continue the momentum,” said Ben Saunders, sales manager for Ibex. “Tom and Marisa’s wealth of experience, especially in the soft goods market, makes them a perfect fit for the Ibex brand. We feel fortunate to be adding an agency of Great Pacific’s caliber and we look forward to working together.”

“There has been a lot of buzz around Ibex over the last several months, and we are excited to join the team in time for the Spring 2012 selling season,” said Caldwell. “We believe that Ibex is a terrific fit for the Great Pacific Sales agency based on our existing portfolio, as well as the strength that Ibex offers as a baselayer and performance line.
