BOSTON (October 17, 2022) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Tracksmith, the independent running brand, is thrilled to announce that Massimo Alpian has joined the brand as Global Director of Brand Communications. Alpian brings nearly two decades of exceptional experience in marketing, communications and sports advocacy in the outdoor industry, fortifying Tracksmith’s commitment to global expansion and bringing the brand to committed runners through strategic storytelling.
“As a marketer and lifelong runner, Tracksmith encapsulates everything I could ask for professionally and personally,” said Alpian. “Joining Tracksmith is a unique opportunity to empower our community and push the sport of running towards new boundaries through powerful storytelling paired with beautifully crafted product.”
A NYC-native now based in Boulder, Colorado, Alpian has worked on both the brand and agency side executing global marketing and communications strategies for legacy brands including KEEN, Fjallraven, HOKA, and CamelBak.
