Bradshaw Taylor, which has been the distributor of Sherpa Adventure Gear for many years, has agreed to take over the brand and its assets. Corry Taylor, the owner of the U.K.-based wholesaler, will be its new chief executive. Sherpa Adventure Gear will continue a partnership with Innov8 Partners for sales in North America and related functions. Innov8, an American family-owned investment company which has nothing to do with the British Inov-8 brand, acquired a majority stake in Sherpa in the spring of 2016, placing Dan J. Costa, a former owner of Royal Robbins, at the head of the Nepalese firm. More in The Outdoor Industry Compass.
