Banner Elk, NC (July 1, 2018) — Misty Mountain Threadworks, a world-class manufacture of recreational harnesses and sewn goods, is proud to announce the appointment of Kevin Riley as Marketing and Sales Manager.

As an avid rock climber and outdoor enthusiast, Kevin has over 15 years of leadership experience in the outdoor recreation industry. He has served as an assistant manager at Moosejaw Mountaineering (Rochester Hills, MI) and as an associate publisher at Climbing Magazine and Urban Climber Magazine. In his spare time he hosts his podcast, Action in Solitude.

“It’s a dream come true to be at Misty Mountain,” says Riley. “When I began rock climbing in college in Western Massachusetts I purchased a Misty harness and crash pad, and I’ve been a fan of the brand ever since. They make the best harnesses and sewn goods and they’re made in the rolling hills of Western North Carolina, which means a lot to me.”

“We are pleased to have Kevin join the Misty family,” said Goose Kearse, President at Misty Mountain. “His depth of experience and understanding of the outdoor industry and ever-changing digital marketing landscape are great assets that will help us better serve our customers and grow the brand.”
