Leica Sport Optics recently announced changes to its sales and marketing structure for the North American operation. Moving forward, Leica has shifted sales representation to an internal, employee-based structure. This direction will allow dealers to have dedicated Leica employees as their primary source of sales support and product information. To further this aim, Leica has hired industry veteran Brian Smith as director of Sport Optics. In his new role, he will be responsible for all aspects of the Sport Optics division for North America.
