Brooks Wilson to assume the role of Radar Brand Manager

HortonHorton Posts: 23,517 Administrator


Radar waterskis is proud to announce Brooks Wilson will reside the post of Brand Manager. A very dynamic position overseeing the design, production, marketing, and sales of every product with the Radar name on it.

We used this quote from one of our countries true great leaders in regards to the backbone of a successful brand manager. "People must have the self-confidence to be clear, precise, to be sure that every person in their organization—highest to lowest—understands what the business is trying to achieve.” - Jack Welch. Somebody that really understands the business - where it is today, where it is going tomorrow and how it will get there in a simple pragmatic manner. When we started the search with this mindset there was only 1 name on our list - Brooks Wilson.

At the ripe young age of 26 Brooks has pretty much been there and done that in the world of watersports - with the exception of fulfilling the hot seat as the Radar Skis Brand Manager.

As a skier - He’s been a National Waterski Champion, Jr. Masters & US Open Champion, and stood on Pro Podiums.

As an ambassador - Brooks spent years on the road throughout the states, and all the way to to Australia, South Africa and Europe for clinics, competitions and demos.

As a marketer - He created a waterski community called Radar Nation - an interactive ski site for likeminded skiers across the globe.

As a leader - Brooks has always lead by example - setting an example for those around him.

As a friend - We couldn’t be more excited to have his energy at Square 1 Distribution on a daily basis.

    Congratulations Brooks. Welcome to the west coast. Radar is lucky to have you on their team.When I heard the news , I was happy for you and your career , but a bit sad for all of the skiers that rely on your coaching , myself included. I'm sure your hectic schedule will still allow you to do a bit of coaching when you are out there promoting the brand. Enjoy the next chapter of your life !

    Brooks is a great guy and an awesome coach! I'm sure he will do very well at Radar.
  • cragginshredcragginshred Posts: 639 Crazy Baller
    Brooks is the right guy! He did a video coaching for me last fall and it was very helpful.
    I will say I was bummed to not see a RADAR booth at the Cali Pro Am last weekend.

    met him last year-ish. He dropped by to pick up an item dropped off by a mutual friend. We were skiing at the time. Thought I'd be just handing him the items and he'd on the way. He asked if he could ride along. Heck ya!! Next thing we know he is coaching 2 of us for full sets each. And nailing exactly what was needed for each skier. Telling us what is going well and telling us what needs to be a focus. And he did it in a way where you could tell he wanted the light to come on in your eyes before he let you ski. And then there is the car he's tooling around in. Hope he's not taking it out West. Not sure it would make it. Great guy, great coach, humble and very approachable. Good pick Radar. FL loss for sure.

    No better man for the job, so stoked for @brooks very well deserved. Cant wait to see where he takes the brand in the future! Excited to have him on the west coast for sure. Like @MattP said For everyone that is curious a few weeks ago Chris Sullivan started working with Mastercraft; got an offer he couldn't pass up. He is super excited for his future with them, Will miss him being at Radar!

    Great guy for the job! Okay, Wish, what's the car?
  • dvskierdvskier Posts: 121 Baller
    White Lightning could make it anywhere that Brroks wants to drive it. Good old Chevy pickup 350 powered.
  • WishWish Posts: 6,742 Mega Baller
    When he was here he had a station wagon. Like a 1970s-ish one. He seemed really proud of it. Kinda felt bad when I chuckled asking about it. In hindsight...very practical for a skier and wet gear.

    In April he was driving White Lightning, he loves that truck. Looks well worn but highly functional.

    haha the good ol chevy white lightning is sadly gone, Loved that thing though, he has a newer truck now!

    got to ski with Brooks a few years ago at the boarding school and it was a stellar experience. I could tell he had a mind for the business side of the sport, but I'm sad to hear he will be moving out west, that is a great loss to the boarding school!

    I love it when the good guys win. Congrats Brooks

    I also have had a lot of incredible cars through the years and I am sure I will have more to come! I love how many memories many of you have brought up here, stoked for the memories to come as well.
