“We are delighted to have Simon join our team,” says Allcord MD Kieron MacKenzie.
"Simon will work closely across all our brands but his key focus will be with our climbing ranges from CAMP, ClimbX, Tendon and Trangoworld. This is a significant change of direction and investment for Allcord which we believe further demonstrates our commitment to driving our business and the brands we distribute forward. We are pleased to be able to sponsor not just Simon but also his forthcoming lecture series which will take him around the UK just as he launches his third book, The Wild Within."
