Born in Vienna, raised in Chicago, educated in Michigan and elsewhere, Marty is the quintessential outdoor entrepreneur. After trading in his passion for sports to camping and climbing at the Hamilton Road Alpine Club in the early 70’s his life adventure began. Devil’s Lake, WI became a second home from which a small gear sourcing company was born. Primary Source distributed European gear and clothing for several years while Marty established Erehwon Mtn. Supply in Chicago and Madison.
These initial business endeavors led to years of involvement with the outdoor industry in various capacities. He is credited with creating the first national sales rep group composed of climbers and adventurers; ROUNDTABLE ASSOCIATION. Marty often planned strategic marketing programs and directed product development for numerous emerging and established makers of the era; Sierra West Wilderness Experience, Snow Lion, Moss Tents, Dana Design to name a few.
During the 1980’s he developed his own label COUNTRYSIDE OUTFITTERS, a collection of British woolen accessories and clothing along with Asian made down parkas and coats, primarily for urban markets. Marty sold and shipped products to major outdoor retailers around the country from a small warehouse in New Hampshire.
Almost ten years ago he was lured back to his roots in the heartland by family and friends. Here he renewed his Erehwon experience while directing the opening of the Milwaukee store in 2009 and managing it for several years thereafter.
Moshe was a frequent patron in the store and they started a dialogue about gear that overtime became a friendship. The concept for a retail venue with passion and a purpose began to emerge during their frequent conversations. In fall of 2014, Yellow Wood sprouted from a few heirloom seeds. Watch them grow!
