Clim8, the French company founded in 2016, has announced its expansion into the North American market. Clim8 is the developer of an innovative, patented thermal management technology that has already been launched in collaboration with premium brands in Europe (Odlo, Ixon) and South Korea (K2 Korea). Having already established important partnerships with W.L. Gore, Clim8 now plans to grow in the U.S. with a new organization. To begin with, Clim8 is bringing in Jon Klein, former business development leader at Primaloft, as VP of business development for North America. With over 20 years of industry experience, Klein will focus on developing market penetration and new partnerships. In addition, Claire Ortiz, former VP of business development in North America at Clim8, will serve as marketing director for North America, while continuing to handle business development for her key accounts. She was formerly a creative director at Nike for the Jordan Brand and global business director at Wilson for softgoods (apparel, footwear and accessories). Clim8 plans to announce new partnerships and product launches with top global brands for the coming winter season.
