"I have been working with Ian on and off for over 20 years. Bringing both experience and sensitivity to the table, Ian can see all sides to a situation. Even though Ian functions as a sales representative, I know he also cares about my retailers and is advocating for them!  Whenever I hear that Ian has a brand that I carry...I think, "YES", finally someone I can count on!"

After 12+ years of buying for our single location retail shop I have to say that Ian has always stood out as an excellent sales rep.  His commitment to visiting the shop and providing clinics is unparalleled.  This not only gives him a true and honest perspective of what we are looking for from the brands that he represents but keeps the staff excited, engaged and informed.

I’ve worked with Ian Decker for over a decade with several brands that we’ve carried at Bentgate Mountaineering.  He's intimately acquainted with his product lines down to the minor detail. He offers solid advice on what assortment will thrive at our store because he understands our customer base.  He has great communication and checks in regularly throughout each season. His clinics make good use of our employees time covering important product details and how to relate those to a customer.  Ian is simply a good human that does good business.
