The ski and snowboard brand APO has announced that it will officially be relocating it’s headquarters to Denver, CO. APO has decided to make the move to the “Mile High City” in an effort to be more centrally located to the Rocky Mountain Range and more accessible for APO athletes Sammy Carlson, 2014 Snowboard Slopestyle Olympic Gold Medalist Sage Kotsenberg and company, while working closely with its US media partners. The gang here at FREESKIER is surely excited to hear this news, as product developments and APO news will now be based locally in Colorado.

Press Release, APO:
APO is excited to announce it will be centralizing it’s US headquarters to Denver this month. The move reflects Snowide’s commitment to the US market and allows the group to operate inside of a snowsports industry hotbed with APO continuing to offer a full range of skis, snowboards, and technical outerwear.
Cedric LeCordoch, APO’s Global Marketing Manager stated, “Moving to Denver will create a synergy within the US market for APO as all of our sales and marketing associates will be in one location. This move will also allow us to work closely with our US media partners to further enhance the APO brand image.”
Denver’s close proximity to numerous world-class ski resorts will be advantageous for APO, allowing for easy product testing and content generation. The group’s US sales headquarters will be located in the Battery 621 building, which already houses several other action sports brands. The office will feature a full product showroom, allowing buyers to see the group’s full product offers and developments. In addition, Big Fish Media Group will continue to handle all PR activity out of it’s Denver office.
“A US headquarters in Denver will make it possible for us to spend more time with our partners at Sales Guys Inc. where we will focus on creating strong relationships with our specialty retailers and buying groups,” said APO’s Director of Sales Yann Zaccaro.
APO’s riders will now be able to visit the office en route to the mountains in one easy trip to the “Mile High City.” Olympic gold medalist Sage Kotsenburg, Sammy Carlson, Kai Mahler, Eero Niemela, and Spencer O’Brien are some of the APO athletes and product testers that will enjoy the close proximity to the heart of the Rocky Mountains.
