Four-time Olympic and five-time World Championships medalist Julia Mancuso is thrilled about her new three-year partnership with the Swiss ski manufacturer Stoeckli that include the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games. With this latest signing, Stoeckli continues to strengthen and utilize its partnership as an official supplier to the U.S. Ski Team to reinforce its growth in the U.S. market.
“I am very excited to be on Stoeckli,” Mancuso said. “Having such a dedicated, strong team is one of the reasons I chose to move. The support from such a successful company in ski racing, that’s recognized as producing some of best skis on the tour, will only make me more confident as I enter the season. I am really happy to be joining Stoeckli.”
George Couperthwait, general manager for Stoeckli North America, believes this latest addition marks a huge opportunity for the brand.
“The endorsement of our skis’ on-snow performance with an athlete like Julia is really critically to our success in the U.S. market. I know that our entire international race department will put in the time, resources and effort to insure that Julia gets the quality results on the World Cup we know she desires. At the same time, we hope to harness her tremendous personality and loyal following to help us further market and grow the Stoeckli brand in North America,” said Couperthwait.
Stoeckli’s Director of Wintersports Walter Reusser explained that this signing will help the brand on two fronts.
“First, this is an important addition to our international stable of athletes and our commitment to international ski racing success,” he said. “Second, it confirms once again our strategic plans to reinforce and grow our business in the U.S. market. We all look forward to working with Julia and to being a part of her future success.”
Mancuso added, “I look forward to these next few years. I am ready to fight for the podium and I am certain the Stoeckli team is exactly what I need to make that jump again!”
