[Dover, NH] – Cam Brensinger, founder and CEO of NEMO Equipment, Inc., an award-winning outdoor gear manufacturer focused on shifting the way people enjoy and interact in the outdoors, has been named one of the outdoor industry’s Best & Brightest by Outdoor Retailer Daily. The OR Daily, published by AIM Media (Backpacker, SKI, Skiing Magazines) is the official publication of the bi-annual Outdoor Retailer Trade Show that takes place in Salt Lake City, drawing nearly 50,000 attendees each year.
Just 26 people were named to the inaugural list. Among them were Beaver Theodorakis, founder of prAna, a yoga and lifestyle clothing brand; Melissa Arnot Reid, mountaineer & guide and the first woman to survive an Everest climb without supplemental oxygen; and Jennifer Scism, founder of the Kittery, ME-based dehydrated meal brand, Good To-Go.
“I’ve always thought of him as a visionary,” said Nikwax North America’s president, Rick Meade. Prior to leading Nikwax, Meade was a tent buyer at the nationwide retailer REI and was responsible for bringing NEMO on as a brand sold at the store.
According to the OR Daily, “Brensinger’s ability to think independently has established NEMO as a trendsetter…relaxed sleeping bag dimensions in a market full of mummy bags and tents that used airbeams instead of poles. To paraphrase Meade, Brensinger simply works within a different framework.”
