We have some big news to share going into the new year…
Quick Feat’s current U.S. Managing Director, Darrell Kirk, will be leaving at the end of December to pursue his passion as an Executive Coach and Facilitator. Darrell joined Quickfeat at the beginning of the pandemic and represented the company through a trying time, attending industry trade shows and customer meetings. We want to take this opportunity to thank Darrell for his contributions and wish him a fond farewell as he embarks on his new career!
With Darrell’s departure approaching, we are excited to announce the addition of Sierra Willard, Account Director for Quick Feat. Sierra, the niece of former U.S. Managing Director Glenn Willard, started working for Quick Feat full-time in August after graduating from University of Arts London with a degree in Fashion PR and Communications.
In her new role, Sierra will assist with marketing, communication, and sales, among other things. She plans to travel to meet with clients as well as attend industry events and fabric fairs. She recently attended the 2023 Lululemon Vendors Summit with Justina Chan, Quick Feat Partner, in Vancouver, Canada.
In addition, Sierra just got back from visiting our factories and partner factories in China. This was a great opportunity for her to dive into the manufacturing side of the business and the industry as a whole.
“My degree in Fashion PR and Communications has been a great fit for this role, and I’m excited to learn more about the business and industry. I look forward to meeting and working with many of you in the new year.”
