2010 Industry Profiles comes to an end!

01 Oct, 2010

The 2010 Industry Profiles composed of 35 individuals, from June to October every Tuesday and Thursday in an interview series that showcased various jobs within the industry.

I started the Industry Profile series 3 years ago and since then countless companies, countless jobs and people from all different backgrounds have told their story in these interviews.  The snowboard industry is full of amazing people, many you never hear about but they are the ones who help design, build, showcase and help run this industry.  Their stories are told in each interview and for many of us wondering how to get into the snowboard industry, it gives you an idea of what it takes to make it.

I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to submit the interview and share their thoughts.  It’s remarkable to meet these people in person and I truly appreciate the effort all of them put into our world of snowboarding.  It was great to see that the shorter interview format was accepted but as always suggestions are always welcome.

Also I’d like to know which interviews/people you liked the most this summer, who do you remember after countless interviews and why?

Stay tuned for next summer’s 2011 industry profiles.  I’m already thinking of the next interviews and looking forward to meeting new people who should be interviewed.

Here are the 2010 Industry Profiles in case you missed them this summer:

    Coming to an end?? Summer only?? I suggest that you do these industry profiles year round!

    I will later leave some feedback on the ones that I liked but I’m at work so I’ve got to keep it quick – I actually hopped on just to see if there was another industry profile 😀

    Martin, I know it’s my summer gig. Just the amount of time involved works in the summer but not in the winter when I have a lot less time to devote to interviews.

    Johan, thanks 🙂 haha the industry isn’t that big so keeping it summer only for now. I’ll try to do some other industry related interviews this winter.

    Umm even now I remember the DDR interview, partly because I check his blog every freakin day in an attempt to learn something about making a logo.

    Hasnt worked yet but I’ve seen a lot of cool stuff for sure!
