According to Mark Comcowich, Darn Tough’s Director of Sales, “the combination of these two outstanding agencies and leaders creates twice the dedication to supporting our customers.” In the mid-Atlantic, “Adam and his crew have an extraordinarily solid reputation. Combining Hal’s abilities as a team player and leader with his knowledge of the Darn Tough line of products was an opportunity I could not pass up as I was the initial sales agent in that territory.

The group offers close to 50 years of combined expertise and brings in-depth knowledge specifically in the footwear market. Darn Tough will now be featured alongside other well-known outdoor brands in its portfolio, including Mountain Hardwear, NEMO, and Stanley, in the markets of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware.

Adam Shapiro, Principal Rep at Hudson Valley Sales Group, stated, “Darn Tough is a fantastic fit for us, and we are happy to represent them here on the east coast. “Having This was a no-brainer for our team because we already work with other outdoor businesses, and we’re thrilled to apply our expertise to the American-made brand.”Adam and I currently have a similar and very successful partnership with other brands in the territory,” declared Hal Ellms. Darn Tough’s inclusion in that relationship “was a natural progression and one that is set up for success,” according to the author.
