September 6, 2022
Business NH Magazine Names the Top 30 Companies in NH
Dover, NH—September 6, 2022/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ –NEMO, the award-winning, independent designer of outdoor gear and accessories built to improve the adventure experience, has been named one of the best places to work in New Hampshire by Business NH Magazine. For 25 years, Business NH Magazine has recognized businesses that go out of their way to create engaging workplaces and understand that fulfilled employees are more productive. This year’s competition attracted a record number of applicants.
Each company completed an employee engagement survey administered by an independent their party, as well as an extensive employer survey, detailing benefits and workplace practices. A panel of HR executives judged the company culture responses on the employer survey to determine the winners.
“NEMO has experienced exceptional growth this past year and with our decision to continue as a hybrid workspace, it is vital to keep the team connected and growing together,” said Jill Holt, PHR, NEMO’s People, Culture, Office Manager. “Our dynamic benefits package supports the complete employee from health and wellness to paying for their fishing license to providing time to spend with family and friends. Together, we have created experiences in and out of the office to keep our team motivated and engaged. Group camping trips, winter ski outings, cooking competitions and movie nights have provided balance and camaraderie.”
Over the course of the past two years, NEMO has nearly doubled its team. The objective with each hire is to build a thriving team that reflects diversity, protects the places we all depend upon for outdoor recreation, and works to create equitable and inclusive access to the outdoors.

“After 13 years of working for some great outdoor brands across several different departments, it felt like the opportunity at NEMO was a perfect fit,” said Darren Josey, Vice President of Marketing who has been with the brand for two years. “I and so many of my BIPOC peers often feel like the moment will never come. However, my time at NEMO has not only fulfilled my personal career goals, but I’m asked, ‘what do you need from us to accommodate more diversity and inclusion?’ As a proud Puerto Rican and Black outdoor enthusiast, I’m personally and professionally motivated to make places where we recreate safer, while also inviting others from the BIPOC community to join in our industry’s corporate HQ’s.”
NEMO is a Dover-based outdoor gear company known for creating award-winning products that are built to last, comfortable and fun to use. Named the fastest growing camping brand in 2021 by NPD Group, NEMO has also been recognized by New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility as a small business leader for the environment, and recently won the 2021 Sustainability Slam for its 100K Polybag Elimination Project which commits to removing 100,000 polybags from the brand’s product line by 2023. NEMO’s reputation for design innovation across its product lines—tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, camp accessories and furniture—is an outgrowth of its design philosophy to never bring anything to market that doesn’t offer a meaningfully better experience. NEMO’s team of designers and engineers are motivated by a passion for outdoor adventure and sustainability.
