Laguna Beach, CA - May 5, 2010 - FORM Athletics welcomes Joseph Seemayer as the new Vice President of Sales and General Manager. With extensive experience in apparel and footwear, Seemayer is a seasoned professional and his addition to the FORM Athletics team promises to expand FORM's reach and further cement the brand's position in the marketplace.
Seemayer most recently served as the VP of Sales for Affliction apparel, and prior to that served in the same capacity at DC Shoes - building and managing the sales team and handling strategic business planning.
Seemayer has been integral in the success of several brands, including Split Inc, Body Glove Apparel and World Industries Boys. He brings with him relationships with top retailers such as The Buckle, Nordstrom, Macy's, Dillards, and Pacific Sunwear.
