Kali Protectives Hires Former Suomy Sales Manager, Looks for Reps


Kali Protectives — the helmet maker that makes foam liners and shells as one piece, with no third-party bonding agent — has hired Don Schmidt as national sales manager for its Motor Sports Division. He will manage the outside sales and service team, work with marketing to develop sales and marketing strategies and oversee dealer-direct retail development. He’s now accepting applications from independent reps.

Schmidt was previously U.S. sales manager for Suomy Helmets. According to Kali Protectives, he has many years of experience in the motorsports industry, and has developed grassroots programs with local riding communities around the country. “His knowledge and experience will be influential and help connect our innovative technologies and products to the marketplace,” Kali Protectives founder Brad Waldron said in a press release.

Schmidt said, “I’m really excited to be joining the team. Kali Protectives grabbed my attention with innovative technologies and superlight helmets. Kali has just what dealers are looking for in today’s marketplace, award-winning protective gear and high margins.”

Kali Protectives encourages experienced independent sales reps to contact Schmidt at donny@KaliProtectives.com for select dealer-direct sales opportunities.
