ERGO APPOINTS MATT KEENAN AS SURF MARKETING DIRECTOR AND TEAM MANAGER
LAKEWOOD, NJ., (May 26, 2009) − ERGO is proud to announce that very own team rider, Matt Keenan, has been named surf marketing director and team manager. Stepping up to his new role, Keenan will oversee all surf-related marketing, athlete and event initiatives.
“We’re fortunate to have Matt on board – between his marketing background, his knowledge of the industry, and his surfing capabilities, he is the ideal fit for the position,” says ERGO vice president Pete Dispirito. “Although he has a ton of surfing left in him as a team guy on ERGO, he is frothing to take on the responsibility of his new position.”
“I’ve been with ERGO since the beginning stages and I know that with the squad we have representing the brand along with the fresh new gear coming out this season, things will just keep blowing up for us,” says Keenan. “I’m psyched to be able to contribute more to the company’s growth and success and to play a more integral role in building ERGO’s surf program.”
