Gingervitus: RIP

By • Dec 9th, 2011 • Category: Features, Latest

Dear John — my one and only reader,

I don’t know how to tell you this, but I have found someone else whom I think the world of. I think the only way out is for us to get a divorce… Whoops, no I mean – I am writing to you to tell you that our romance is over. I have found another snowboard company that I love more than Yobeat (see below).

I think I first knew when you called me overrated, but the way you commented on my flowing locks kept me hanging on for each Friday post. I know what you’re thinking — who will waste my Friday afternoons with hammering boredom, confusion and snowboard nonsense? I’m sorry I cannot help you — maybe check out anything Hondo writes?

I love you, only slightly more than Yobeat, and slightly less than my new job; therefore I doubt quite seriously whether I will have much time in the future to correspond with you. You know that I’ll always treasure your comments, but I will no longer search your IP Address and look you up on the Internet.

With great relief,

Colleen M. Quigley

p.s. I am returning your offensive communication, but keep my virginity.



For immediate release:

Portland, OR (December 8, 2011) – Bonfire/ Salomon is pleased to announce the addition of Colleen Quigley to the marketing team. She will take on a Communications and Community Marketing role during a very exciting time for the brands.

Reporting to Marketing Manager Kevin Stevenson, Colleen will take the reigns of the Digital Strategy, and work collaboratively to manage the Global PR efforts, Events and Media marketing needs of Bonfire / Salomon.

“So hyped to have Colleen join our crew! She’s super legit both as a boarder and a journalist, and I couldn’t imagine a better voice to get the Bonfire and Salomon brand messages out there.” – Kevin Stevenson

Originally from Massachusetts, Colleen has spent the last several years filming and competing as a top athlete in women’s snowboarding. Graduating with a business degree from the University of Vermont, she has been a freelance contributor to several of the largest print and web media outlets globally. For the last five summers Colleen has worked with the sport’s youth as a coach at High Cascade Snowboard Camp.

“It is with incredible excitement that I am joining the highly talented Bonfire/ Salomon team. When the opportunity came up, I jumped at the chance to be a part of a crew that shares the same devotion to core snowboarding that I have. I am proud to be a part of a company with a legacy of innovation and commitment to snowboarding.” – Colleen Quigley

    I’d be really psyched for Colleen… if she had been hired by a snowboard company and not Salomon.

    yo nerd, how does one thing within a brand become unaffiliated with another aspect while keeping the same name / corporate address?
