Black Diamond Inc, a leading provider of outdoor recreation equipment and active lifestyle products, has appointed Bill Kulczycki as vice president and general manager of its Gregory Mountain Products division.

Kulczycki comes to the post after four years as president and CEO of outdoor outfitter, C.C. Filson Company. He was previously with Patagonia, where for more than 28 years he held a variety of positions, including vice president of product development, sales & marketing, and international and business development.

As Gregory's VP and GM, Kulczycki will lead the brand and directly manage the senior Gregory team. He will also serve as the liaison to the executive team at Black Diamond, reporting to Black Diamond's CEO Peter Metcalf. Kulczycki's more than 30 years of experience in the outdoor apparel industry will bring additional value to Black Diamond as a member of its executive team.

"I am both excited and exceedingly pleased to have someone of Bill's breadth and depth of professional global experience in the outdoor space taking the reins of Gregory," said Metcalf. "He is exactly the sort of seasoned industry veteran that Gregory needs to guide its next phase of global growth as the innovative leader in the world of specialty outdoor packs and bags. What makes this hire exceptionally gratifying is the fact that it has come about after a 30-year friendship based on mutual respect, matured through the business challenges we have both successfully navigated."

Kulczycki will be based at Gregory's new Salt Lake City headquarters where the company relocated earlier this year following its merger with Black Diamond. Gregory operates as an independent brand with an autonomous product management, research & development, and sales & marketing team pursuing their own global strategies.

"In backpacks, Gregory is known for relentlessly pioneering new suspensions and technologies," commented Kulczycki. "Combine that 35-year heritage of innovation with Black Diamond's operational platform and Gregory's potential is unlimited. I'm honored to join such an iconic and well-respected brand as Gregory, as well as the leadership team at Black Diamond."
