FOR A DYNAMIC MARKET, DDR SALES INVESTS IN SUPPORTING THEIR RETAILERS
Phoenix, AZ (March 24, 2019) - DDR Sales, an established independent sales agency representing leading brands in the Outdoor and Cycling industries, today announced an expansion in their team and an upgrade in their online retailer support systems. Established in 1993, DDR Sales consists of Doug Ritter, Nancy Ritter and the new addition of David Craw. DDR Sales is a proud partner of Tsunami sales for several of their lines in the AZ, SO NV and NM territories.
Endorsed by their brand partners and retailer customers alike, DDR Sales is adding additional capabilities to support growth in their territory. David Craw joins DDR Sales with a solid background in outside sales having worked for a handful of companies (i.e. Cannondale, Sugoi, Airwalk, Dragon and Volcom). David is an avid outdoor enthusiast enjoying cycling (both road and MTB), snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, camping, and scuba diving in his spare time. David joins industry sales veteran Doug Ritter and business & office manager Nancy Ritter.
“With decades of experience, Doug has a wealth of knowledge in the cycling and outdoor industries. He has developed excellent relationships with retailers and does whatever it takes to communicate and build those relationships.”
Doug Ritter, Principal at DDR Sales, says “I’m excited to invest in the agency and grow our sales team to better service our retailer partners. David has a solid background in the industry and is a seasoned professional that brings instant value to our retailers .”
In addition to growing the sales team, DDR Sales has partnered with REPatron to upgrade their internal sales/support systems to better support the traveling sales reps. Since 2011, REPatron has supported DDR Sales with technology and digital sales/marketing support. Retailer communications are coordinated using a recently upgraded Retailer Relationship Management System (RRM). With centralized communications, integrated email marketing, issue tracking, appointment assignment and trade show appointment scheduling, the new system scales for the increased focus and growth. The new trade show scheduler allows a retailer to schedule our appointments 24/7 around their schedule without wasting back and forth schedule conflicts. Auto reminders and email integration makes it easy and better for the retailer.
