Ibex Outdoor Clothing, manufacturer of technical merino wool apparel and accessories of the highest quality, adds a key new player to its management team. Effective immediately, outdoor industry veteran Ken Stone will head the Ibex production team in his role as Global Production Director.

Stone brings a wealth of outdoor industry experience to his new Production Director position at Ibex. His outdoor industry career began 21 years ago at Black Diamond where he worked both on the operations side of the business in supply chain as well as on the product side in product development. Stone, a New England native and avid outdoor athlete, has relocated to Vermont where he looks forward to nordic ski racing this winter and running in the Boston Marathon in the Spring.

In his role at Ibex, Stone’s responsibilities comprise everything that happens between the initial commercialization of a product and receiving it into the warehouse. His duties include: product costing, sourcing, production planning, supply chain management, materials management and quality control.

“Ken brings a tremendous amount expertise to his role at Ibex,” said John Fernsell, founder and CEO of Ibex. “As we expand our U.S. supply chain, quality and consistency are crucial. Having Ken’s experience and leadership on the production team will ensure that we create the highest quality products. Because of his background in both business and product, he will have an immediate impact on our company.”
