We've made a new hire, and we've given one of our excellent sales folks a promotion recently, and both of these guys will be contributing to our Total Goalie forum here on the Goalie Crease Network, and in other GCN posts as well. Both are incredibly knowledgeable, they're fantastic with customers, and we couldn't be more excited to have them on board.
Chris Hart - Assistant Manager and Goalie Specialist, Downer's Grove, IL store:
Chris has been playing goalie in the Illinois area since he was 6 years old. He played AA hockey during his youth, played goal for Naperville HS, and then played club hockey for Southern Illinois Univ. Throughout his entire career, Chris has been extremely interested in goalie gear, and this interest and passion translated into a successful career as the top goalie sales associates at our busiest CHI store. Customers from around the CHI area see Chris as a trusted resource for both stock and custom gear. Chris was recently promoted to Assistant Manager, and he recently began contributing to this board under the name "TG Chris".
He can also be found on Facebook under the same name, where he regularly contributes to various boards and forums. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org, and the phone number at his Downer's Grove store is 630.322.9850.
Jim Martin - Goalie Specialist, Minneapolis-St. Paul Region:
This past week, we added Jim Martin to our staff as the Goalie Specialist for the MSP region. Jim will be based out of our Edina, MN store, but he will travel regularly to our other 3 Minnesota stores where he will oversee our goalie staff in the region (among other things).
For the past 3 years, Jim served as the Pro Shop Manager for Stauber's Goal Crease in Edina, MN. Using mostly social media and online forums, Jim built Stauber's into one of the most successful goalie pro-shops in the Twin Cities. Jim has a solid reputation as one of the most trusted resources for goalie gear on the web, and he does enough custom gear work to make your head spin. He has tested goalie equipment for Reebok, Warrior and Vaughn in the past and he has done many goalie gear fittings with NCAA Men's and Women's goalies as well.
Jim can be found on this forum and on Facebook under the name "TG Jim", and his email is email@example.com. To contact him by phone at the Edina store, call 952.831.0021.
