Our People

It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to look good doing it.

Bill Weber

Bill Weber Team Captain

When I started my own tree care company back in 1986 I never thought I would end up making clothes for some of the same folks that helped me out way back then. Sure, there are days I'd rather be working in the trees but we all have those. Truth is, we have one of the best teams around and working together here is like one big family. But when I am not with this family I'm with my other family, at home. We spend as much time outdoors as possible and try and squeeze in family dinners between athletic games or after school activities.

Rob Paradise

Rob Paradise VP Sales

I spend my time at Arborwear opening more avenues to deliver product to our customers. That takes me on the road quite a bit but it is a great chance for me to listen to our customers and work with them to help deliver our message. When I'm not on the road or in the office, I can most certainly be found in the field hunting or fishing with my brothers. When the seasons are closed, you'll find me on a lake or camping with my amazing wife, Mindy.

Candi Mutz

Candi Mutz Corporate Sales Manager

My job at Arborwear is to manage the Corporate side of our business. When I started at Arborwear back in 2007, our corporate catalog was a one page document! There were only a few styles of pants to choose from. We have grown so much and in so many ways—It's very exciting to see the growth of our brand!

Many companies, big and small, have come to us for their clothing needs. This can be as simple as adding a logo to some t-shirts, to setting up a managed program and custom webstore to service thousands of employees. Every customer looks at clothing differently and has different needs. Figuring out what makes sense for our customers is what make my job fun.

When I'm not working with my Arborwear family, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our lab Maggie, and our two daughters and their families. I enjoy spending time outside whenever I can.

Kerri Gilbert

Kerri Gilbert Wholesale Sales Coordinator

I have been working at Arborwear for 13 years now! I started doing anything and everything—answering phones, shipping, etc. Since then, I have settled in as the Wholesale Sales Coordinator, where I work with all of the amazing stores that sell Arborwear. When I'm not working, you'll most likely find me spending time with my husband Mark and three awesome kids-Jake, Addison and Caleb. Life is good!

Nancy Grabowski

Nancy Grabowski Accounting / Purchasing

Coming or going, money is my responsibility, but you may also catch me answering your call or helping out at an occasional tradeshow. Mostly I'll be hidden away in the cabin behind a computer crunching numbers. Turn that computer off give me a body of water, toss the kayak in and I'll be paddling. Winters are spent looking for deep powder!

Mindy Soulsby

Mindy Soulsby Marketing Coordinator

Branding minus the red hot poker. This phrase perfectly describes my tasks at Arborwear. As Marketing Coordinator, I work to make sure the Arborwear brand has a cohesive look and witty message. Outside of Arborwear, you can find me honing my skill as an artist through drawing, painting or creating handmade paper products.

Brittany Papsidero

Brittany Papsidero Corporate Sales Coordinator

Chances are, if you called Arborwear, we've had the opportunity to chat! I started at Arborwear back in 2009. Over the years, I've had my hand in a little bit of everything from answering phones and order entry to shipping. As our team has grown, I've found my niche as the Corporate Sales Coordinator. My primary role is to help companies outfit their crews in our gear. I work closely with our screen printers and embroiderers to ensure your garment embellishment is just right! Outside of work I can be found chasing my 2 dogs, hanging with family & friends, baking, running, or my favorite-lounging on the beach in Mexico with a good book in hand!

Marcy Cope

Marcy CopeProduct Development Design Manager

I really like bringing my design and textile background to this friendly log cabin experience: spending my days researching design & fabric development and fun new hardware and fasteners for the Arborwear product Line. When I'm not creating inside the cabin, I'm creating or painting something inside my home or outside with my husband and daughter: hiking, running, and gardening.

Matt Petche

Matt Petche Warehouse Manager

Here at Arborwear I wear the pants of Warehouse Manager. Be it overseas or out our front door, I help pick, pack, and ship the products our customers love. Stop by the Cabin's outlet store and I'll fix you up with the best clothing in the industry. When I'm not here, you can find me exploring the outdoors with my dog or just working in the yard, of course in my Arborwear gear!

Nicole Hollis

Nicole Hollis Warehouse Supervisor

My day at Arborwear consists of keeping the warehouse organized and packages going out the door. When I am not at work you can me spending time with my family. We are always outdoors camping, fishing, or hunting-and we are always sporting our Arborwear gear!

I wear many hats at Arborwear! My tasks include assisting with product design & research, as well as helping our customers find products in the retail store. Outside of Arborwear, you can find me going to classes, sewing and working on my business. In my free time, I like playing tennis and taking walks.

Shauna Burt

Shauna Burt Production & Sourcing Manager

In my position I get to work with all divisions of the business. I'm lucky to be involved from start to finish getting product to our customers. From collaborating with the design team to placing orders and monitoring production; all the way to coordinating shipments/deliveries-the learning curve is steep, but I love it. When I'm not in the office my time is spent getting to know the area (I just moved with my supportive family, from New Hampshire). I enjoy running and hiking with the dogs, gardening, baking and most of all relaxing with my nose in a book.

Mandy Okrez

Mandy OkrezCustomer Service

My job at Arborwear involves all aspects of customer service. I also work closely with the corporate sales department, so I get to help companies large and small with their uniform programs. Outside of work I'm usually traveling, working in my yard, or spending time with my family.

Lisa McKelvey

Lisa McKelveyWarehouse Specialist

My job here at Arborwear is Warehouse Specialist. My days consist of keeping the warehouse organized, picking & packing orders and shipping them all over the world. When I'm not at work, I enjoy reading, yoga, hiking & spending time with my two teenagers!

Laura Hitchcock

Laura HitchcockAccounting

If you've ever received an invoice from Arborwear, chances are pretty good it came from me. I am responsible for bookkeeping, accounts payable and receivable, and I also handle business credit applications. Outside of work, I love to do crafty stuff around the house, spend time in my garden and take long weekends at the Lake Erie islands.

Kim Avram

Kim Avram Technical Designer

My job at Arborwear is to help create the quality clothes you love! Working in the design department, we are always researching the latest trends, which I then work into our Arborwear Apparel. After work, you can find me exploring the outdoors with my dog or getting together with my friends and family.

Tessa O’Connor

Tessa O’ConnorAssistant Technical Designer

Working at Arborwear, I am able to combine my fashion design background with my passion for the outdoors. I assist the product development team in creating, sourcing, & researching for the Arborwear apparel line. When I am not at work I try to spend most of my time outside – hiking, camping or skiing. I love exploring new places with friends, family and my miniature husky ...while wearing my Arborwear gear of course!

Libby Takacsperson

Nate DebickRetail Manager

I absolutely love my job here at Arborwear. I get to interact with our guests on daily basis. Besides captaining our retail store team, I get to travel to all the different tradeshows meeting all of our loyal fans across the country, and finding new and exciting products to bring into the store.

If you don’t find me in the store chances are I’m on the river chasing steelhead or sitting in a tree stand chasing whitetails.

My favorite Arborwear product is hands down the Canopy Pants.

Frances Furnas

Frances FurnasRetail Associate

Here at Arborwear, I assist customers in their search for their next favorite product, help customers try on boots, restock, and keep the retail store looking fresh and clean. In my free time (when I’m not studying) you can find me hiking with my dog, checking out local music, traveling, and painting! My favorite product: The Hiram Pullover.

Nikki Bond

My job at Arborwear includes working with both the customer service team and the wholesale team. I love learning about our customers and our awesome stores that sell our products and help us grow! When I’m not at work you will find me outside (as long as the Ohio weather is cooperating!) sitting by a lake or pool, golfing, learning about the hunting world, at a country concert or simply hanging out with my friends and family!
