Bill Schmid has been working in the Outdoor Industry for over 11 years with the last 5 years having been spent as an independent sales rep for a variety of coveted outdoor brands. Prior to that, he worked in-house at Suunto as a Southwest sales manager and tech rep. He began his outdoor career at Adventure 16 as a backpacking instructor and customer service manager. In 2008 he founded his own sales agency, Parallel 33 Sales Group, and hasn’t looked back since.

Born in Denver and raised in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, Bill caught the sales bug during a summer sales job selling educational books door to door to help pay for college at CU. After college he spent 10 years in the printing industry learning sales techniques, how to manage sales territories and establish strong business relationships. After moving to San Diego in 1998, Bill transitioned from the printing industry to the outdoor industry after reading a book called “The Artist’s Way”, which changed his whole outlook on life and encouraged him to pursue his true passion, the outdoor industry where he continues to thrive to this day. Currently, he lives in San Diego with his wife Lisa and daughter Mollie. Bill is an avid skier who also enjoys surfing, running, climbing and mountain biking.
