Over the past year Nester Hosiery has experienced a large increase in the number of world-leading brand partners it serves.
To further grow and manage this demand, Nester Hosiery has hired Matt Brucker as vice president of sales.
“Matt is going to be instrumental as we continue to add more brand partners and grow our business,” says Kerry Nester, Nester Hosiery EVP of sales. “He will ensure we continue to provide them all with the highest levels of service.”
Brucker has a strong background in the outdoor and fitness markets. He spent five years as a footwear retail merchandising manager at REI before moving on to national sales manager and later director roles at Implus in its outdoor and sporting goods and fitness divisions respectively.
In 2017 Brucker founded Sapphire Solutions which helps brands navigate and balance business development between digital and traditional retail channels.
“Nester Hosiery has amazing capabilities which they show case in their Farm to Feet brand,” says Brucker. “They are by and far the most innovative knitter in the market and I look forward to joining their team and helping their customers create better socks.”
Brucker will be reporting to Nester and relocating to the Surry County area of North Carolina with his family.
