Mother Nature never cooperates but I do. With over 24 years of outdoor retail experience, I pride myself in growing and maintaining positive business relationships with every one of our retailers.

I have a passion for the industry that I have been a part of for over 33 years.  I have developed wonderful relationships and friendships with my dealers that are extremely meaningful to me, and motivate me to do a better job.  I love hanging out with my husband who I have been with for over 18 years, and our dog Gabby.  I enjoy girl’s weekends, dinners with friends and hanging out in the barn with a good glass of wine and a good book.
Favorite drink: 2003 Barberesco

 

 

Ryan Spivey    ryan@yukontradingcompany.com 
Territory Manager and REI Sales and Service - Northern Idaho west to the Cascades for Jetboil, Leki and Pistil.
I wear many different hats at Yukon and coincidentally I’m the one to ask if you want a free hat. I’m a big believer in the power of staff enthusiasm. When not behind my desk I can be found trying to justify time outside as “work”. 
Favorite drink: Sadly Red Bull as I’m the father of two young girls and just can’t seem to pretend to like coffee. Oh and I don’t drink alcohol so I’m great for dinners out at the Outdoor Retailer show as 'D.D.' for the rest of the Yukon gang. 

 

Pat Konarska   pat@yukontradingcompany.com
Territory Manager - Western WA for Merrell, Chaco, Lorpen and Pistil.
I have been building relationships and sharing adventures in the outdoor industry since 2008. If I'm not showing the best new styles to my customers, you can find me enjoying time in our Volkswagon van with my wife Stefanie and pup Greta.
Favorite drink: Cold beer

 

 

Rebecca Watt    rebecca@yukontradingcompany.com
Territory Manager:  MT, Southeast ID for Merrell, Chaco, Lorpen and Pistil.
I'm a grower and harvester of my own food, a mountain biker who skis in the off-season, a lover of animals, and a seeker of inspiration and adventure. Given the choice, I would happily survive solely on sushi and Cadbury mini-eggs, with the occasional pulled pork sammy, just to keep things interesting.
Favorite drink: A good Belgian tripel...not too warm, not too cold. 

 

Vince Close    vince@yukontradingcompany.com
Territory Manager:  MT & AK for Jetboil, Leki and Pistil..
Growing up in Ohio, you could say I was born 2000 miles too far East. Montana was always in my dreams and I've called It home since 2004. My roots in the Outdoor Industry go back to my initial days in Big Sky country when I had little but a want to explore the outdoors. A buying job at a local gear store led me to where I am today, traveling throughout Montana and Alaska, living the dream with my wife and bird dogs.
Favorite drink: One with a view

Katy Lohn    katy@yukontradingcompany.com
Marketing Manager --I love a good story, whether it's telling a captivating narrative via in-store marketing and merchandising, or 'round a campfire' at one of our many outdoor events. A perfect weekend for me is hiking, camping and barbecuing (and s'mores-ing!) with friends and some good music.

Favorite drink: Fremont Summer Ale

Analyst -- behind the scenes data analyst kind o’ guy.
Outdoor industry lifer! Got hooked on outdoor activities growing up in St. Louis and moved to Seattle to climb, ski and paddle. I’ve happily been involved in the outdoors for more years than I’d like to admit. Planted roots in Arlington, WA with my wife Teresa and our four awesome kids. Fortunate to be able to enjoy a magnificent view of Three Fingers peak. Photography and travel rank highest as my down-time activities.
Favorite drink: Bold Italian red wines and Oregon Pinot Noirs
