MANAGEMENT TEAM


DOUG KAHL:

PRESIDENT, CEO & Rockies Sales Manager

I was born and raised in Nebraska, where I stayed until I came to Boulder in 1987. I was a rock climber, and having climbed every building in Downtown Lincoln, NE I decided I should try my hand at some real rock. I started working at Mountain Sports in Boulder, where I was the buyer for the climbing and skiing departments.

I started my rep career with a rep group. After ten years, I decided to make my own way. Travis and I had been working together for a few years, and in 1999 we started Kahl & Partners.

I'm a proud Father of a teenage Daughter, who lives in Texas with her Mom. I spend every chance I get with her, either in Texas or here in Colorado.

When I'm not working, I am usually spending time with my Daughter, hiking, golfing, riding bicycles, or racing motorcycles.

TRAVIS ROSEN

VP, BUSINESS MANAGER and tola sales manager

I started my career in Outdoor Sporting Goods at the age of 13.  I worked as a shop rat for a local bicycle retailer in Boulder, Colorado.  From there, I moved into a sales role at the shop and then onto rep positions at Recreational Resources and Pearl Izumi.  I joined forces with Doug Kahl in 1996 and then in 1999, we formed Kahl & Partners.  The rest as they say is history.

I’m the proud papa of two great girls along with my wife Shea.  Our household is rounded out by our English Lab named Ralphie.  Our household demographics are perfectly aligned for our suburban neighborhood bliss known as Stapleton.

Over the last few years, I’ve rediscovered my passion for cycling and am a CAT 3 Road Racer.  That activity has taken time from my other hobbies of golf, wine and photography.  In July I’m glued to the TV watching Le Tour.  The later months of each year is fulfilled with Colorado Buffaloes Football and Basketball.  When time allows, traveling with Shea to a beach with no kids, phone or internet is just about perfection by my book.
