WALLA WALLA – Recently, Martin Archery hired Jason Erdmann as National Sales Director. 

Erdmann, a Wenatchee native, is an accomplished archer and brings strong leadership experience
from his past positions.

After completing his undergraduate degree, Erdmann owned his own very successful archery shop,
J & J Archery, for four years in Wenatchee, WA.  Erdmann was able to put in the first Techno Hunt in Washington, while setting up national competitions and local archery shoots.  Since this time, he
stayed in the outdoor business by running and operating Wild Focus Productions.  Some of the articles,
TV shows, and videos he’s written and produced can be viewed at Wildfocus.biz and on the Outdoor Channel.

Most recently, Erdmann has held several senior administrative positions in private educational
systems in Southern California.  Before going into education Erdmann was a Washington State
Wrestling Champion and college athlete until a shoulder injury ended his wrestling career. 

In addition to an insider’s understanding of archery retailing, Erdmann’s sales and business
development experience has provided him with a strong understanding of territory development;
sales management; problem solving; as well as account management and customer service.  He
has been recognized throughout his career for his ability to lead and motivate individuals to
accomplish a common goal.

Gail Martin the founder of Martin Archery said: “We are delighted to welcome Jason and his family
to Walla Walla.  His enthusiasm for archery and knowledge of the retail environment will be of great
value in rounding out our management team.”  

Jason and his wife, Susan, are in the process of moving with their two children from Southern
California.  They will all be positive additions to the Walla Walla community.

Martin Archery provides valuable jobs and out-of-state revenue to the local Walla Walla economy. Additional information on the company and Martin Compound and Traditional Bows can be found at MartinArchery.com
