Three Saints Outdoor to expand Evolv’s footprint in climbing gyms and retail stores throughout the Western United States.
Tustin, CA (Nov. 2, 2023)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Evolv, the southern California-based leader in creating high-performance climbing shoes, announced today that it has hired leading sales agency Three Saints Outdoor to expand Evolv’s footprint in climbing gyms and retail stores throughout the Western United States.
Based in California and led by John Drollinger, Three Saints Outdoor will represent Evolv in nine Western states: California, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Alaska, and Hawaii.
“John and his team at Three Saints Outdoor bring an ideal mix of product and market knowledge, professional experience, and passion for climbing that is the perfect complement to the opportunity we have with the Evolv brand. We are confident in the Three Saints team to grow Evolv in its home territory and increase service and support to our gyms and dealers,” said Drew Saunders, General Manager at Evolv’s parent company, Oberalp North America. “Evolv has a lot of momentum, and we are poised to build on that with this new representation in the West.”
Based in Orange County, Calif., and founded in 2003 by Brian Chung, Evolv is a modern climbing company rooted in progression and creative self-expression. Since the beginning, Evolv has created technical innovations in service of a new generation of climbers and celebrated the diverse voices that make up our growing community.
“We are thrilled to be working with Evolv in the MegaWest nine states,” Drollinger said. “As reps, we turn tires, build relationships, ski mountains, and climb rocks throughout the Northwest and Southwest, but just like the Evolv brand, our roots go back to climbing in Southern California. Big Bear Lake, Joshua Tree, and the Eastern Sierra are part of our climbing DNA and Evolv’s DNA, so the fit was natural since it grows out of similar experience and passions. From a business standpoint, partnering with a brand that has a solid growth history and trajectory is exciting, and Evolv’s focus on the rapidly growing gym channel makes tremendous sense to us.”
