January 6, 2014 — Boulder, CO — FREESKIER Magazine is pleased to announce the appointment of employee Zach Berman to the position of Associate Publisher of FREESKIER, effective immediately.
Berman brings to the staff more than a decade of industry experience, having worked closely with Level 1 Productions, and over the past four years, moving his way up the FREESKIER ranks.
In his new role, Berman will be responsible for managing strategy related to sales, marketing, partnerships and branding for FREESKIER. He will manage the media-sales team, oversee revenue generation for the FREESKIER brand, and play a strategic role in FREESKIER’s overall brand direction.
“I’ve been a huge fan of the FREESKIER brand since my early days,” says Berman. “Growing up skiing in the East has allowed me a great perspective of the sport, and provided a great standpoint to watch the sport develop into what it is today,” he explains. “We have an incredible team here at FREESKIER and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of it.”
Berman takes the reigns from former Associate Publisher Greg Wright, who now oversees sales and marketing for Storm Mountain Publishing. “Zach has earned this opportunity through dedication, passion and drive,” says Wright. “I have no doubt that he’ll take us to another level in his new role.”
