RIDE Snowboards covering seven territories from California to Alaska. Today, RIDE, a proven leader in snowboard industry, welcomes back the industry veteran as their new national sales manager.
“We are excited to have Jim back at RIDE. He knows the brand
intimately, and his sales experience, connections, and industry
knowledge are a true asset to our team,” said Sean Tedore, global brand
director at RIDE. “Jim brings passion, personality, creativity, a big
beard, long hair, and an infectious sense of humor to RIDE that helps
distinguish who we are.”
As national sales manager, Linnberg will oversee all domestic sales,
including strategy, campaign implementation, and retailer relations.
Staying true to RIDE’s brand identity, Linnberg will work closely with
sales reps to maximize sales growth in each territory, while promoting
fun at the retail level and being apart of the RIDE family.
For more than six years, Linnberg has been an unmistakable presence
in the snowboard industry with his big beard, sharp wit, and jolly
character. He spent the last five years overseeing the sales group that
managed RIDE’s sales for northern California, northern Nevada,
Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and Alaska. Most recently, Linnberg
was a sales rep for Dragon Eyewear in northern California.
Linnberg was raised in Iowa where he started snowboarding and later
moved to Montana to shred bigger mountains. He’s traveled around the
globe snowboarding, and chasing the occasional babe. Before his recent
move to Seattle, Linnberg spent 10 years living in northern California
enjoying the plentiful snowfall Tahoe has to offer.
“I am excited to be back at RIDE and apart of their extraordinary
team,” said Linnberg. “I think it’s safe to say that Tedore and I are
the most handsome national sales manager and global brand director team
in all of snowboarding. If our good looks and charming personalities
can’t sell snowboards, then I honestly don’t know what will.”
