Bryan Iguchi joins Faction Denim.
Today Faction Denim announced that their first major team rider sponsorship agreement had been reached in principle with professional snowboarder Bryan Iguchi. The details of the agreement are not being released, but in the deal Bryan becomes a sponsored team rider, part owner and will be consulting both on clothing design and snowboard team direction.
“Bryan and I have some history”, stated Faction President Tim Pogue. “I signed him to his first contract in snowboarding with Burton when I was the team manager back in 1991.” Pogue went on to say, “Bryan will be the leader and key decision maker in the snowboarding market for us. The skateboard team leader will be announced later this month.”
Bryan’s powerful skate and surf influenced style can be seen in The Haakonsen Faktor video by Dave Seone. He just finished shooting video footage in Jackson Hole with Whitey for his new film and is following the snow North into Whistler for more shooting with Standard Films. His career as a professional snowboarder comes first, but Bryan will take time out to go to trade shows, design meetings and even for design school this summer. Bryan was tremendously excited about Faction’s commitment to amateur snowboarders and skateboarders around the world.
“Being involved as an owner and in product development were the key advantages in my decision to join Faction Denim”, said Bryan. “*and with Tim (Pogue) and the guys from IDC (Mike Parillo & Dan Peterka), I know that we will be creating a great brand with some real exciting things going on in design.”
