Founder / Owner
Mountain River Lanyards
I am the past owner of a start-up fly-fishing accessory manufacturing company. I was directly in charge of product development, growing the business and managing our 250 worldwide accounts. I was involved with testing, packaging, product placement (designed green fixtures) and training. While building Mountain River Lanyards I forged successful business relationships with big accounts such as Orvis, LLBean, and Cabela's and numerous smaller operations in the outdoor sports industry. I have kept our products made in Montana and put various people to work. I also brokered deals with overseas companies for sewing contracts. I am currently working as a consultant with the new owner to ensure a smooth transition.
