Longtime Southwestern Ontario sales rep Jim McCrea is retiring from Tournament Sports, effective Aug. 1, but he will continue to work his territory with Alan Paleczny, who will be handling some of his accounts, until Nov. 30.
McCrea was one of the original members of the Tournament Sports in 1989 and, as sales manager, was able to secure the Precept/Bridgestone distribution rights for Canada, a relationship that still exists 23 years later.
He also helped in growing the Antigua and Nancy Lopez golf products.
His accounts will be divided among three reps, including Paleczny, who has represented Tournament Sports in Corporate business for over nine years.
He was heavily involved in the on-course business with SDI and took over the Southern Ontario a year ago for retail golf.
The retirement of McCrea created an opportunity for Paleczny to extend his involvement with Tournament Sports within his existing territory. His involvement in Skate Retail accounts will extend throughout the entire territory.
He can be reach via e-mail at email@example.com, or by phone at (519) 888-6598 or (519) 589-8958 (cell).
