"I'm humbled and honored to be part of the team at Akervall Technologies," said Ish, "The sky is the limit for ATI. What excites me the most about the future, is our pipeline of innovative products and our patented technology that is so-far superior to the competition. Our growing product line is not only diversified, but also respected to the highest degree by industry professionals and experts in sporting goods and dental injury prevention. I look forward to spreading awareness of our growing brand and to changing the lives of consumers all over the world. "
Ish, an accomplished sales veteran with leadership experience in marketing and business development, has a proven track record both internationally and domestically with several of the most recognized marquee brands in the world, including Wham-O, Trigger Point Performance, and Black & Decker.
In April of 2013, Ish was named to the Sporting Goods Business Journal as one of "Top 40 Sporting Goods Executives Under 40" by SportsOneSource, a prestigious honor that recognizes trailblazers within the sporting goods industry.
"The mouthguard segment of sporting goods has been stagnant for well over 70 years," said Sassa Akervall, CEO of Akervall Technologies, "but from the very start we set out to actively change the industry standard all over the world. Now, I think it is safe to say that we are well on our way!
"In three short years we've grown from just a handful of employees working out of the basement of our home into a team of 24 in our own manufacturing facility. It is time to take a firm grip on the overall business development for marketing and sales. Everyone I turned to and asked for advice put Mark's name at the top of that list. I'm absolutely certain he is the one that will take us to yet another level. His experience and knowledge of the industry is unprecedented. I'm very proud and beyond excited to have Mark onboard with us as we enter a new chapter in our intense journey. And I agree with Mark that the sky really is the limit for Akervall Technologies."
