Sports Inc. USA (SSI) announces its intention to separate from D2M Inc. as part of a broader restructuring strategy of SSI's US operations. D2M has provided the role of a 3rd party sales management service for SSI, overseeing its direct-to-dealer sales effort in conjunction with D2M's growing product catalog and vendor list. Managing Director of SSI John Kim states, “D2M brought a lot of experience and knowledge to the table. While D2M provides a tremendous service to its vendors, their role with SSI was no longer compatible with our strategy moving forward. We wish them all the best.” D2M will officially conclude its role with SSI by October 4th, 2012.
Mr. Jang H. Park, owner of SSI’s parent company Kido Corp., will step in as CEO of SSI. “To ensure the long term success and growth of the Scorpion brand, I felt it necessary to take a more direct role in the reorganization of SSI to bring in the added focus and attention this brand deserves” states Mr. Park. John Kim will continue to oversee the day to day operations of SSI and help execute Mr. Park’s long term vision for SSI USA and the Scorpion brand.
