Leading With Trust - An Interview With Mountain Hardwear President, Troy Sicotte

Mar 22, 2022

When I moved to the Pacific Northwest a few years ago, I had to acclimate to the bone-chilling climate and one of my friends recommended something called the Ghost Whisperer jacket. It had nothing to do with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. In fact, this ultralight down jacket is worn by mountaineers like Miranda Oakley who is widely known as the first woman to climb The Nose of El Capitan (once considered impossible to climb). Needless to say, its versatility allows you to wear it to a nice dinner or while summiting Half Dome. I noticed the company who developed the jacket, Mountain Hardwear, had a rich history of making premium products for the outdoors. Specifically for mountaineering, camping, and trail activities. I regard them as the Mercedes-Benz of outdoor, but Mountain Hardwear President, Troy Sicotte, was quick to compare the brand to Audi because of their technical innovation and avante-garde reputation. Troy Sicotte, President Mountain Hardwear Troy is a native of the Pacific Northwest, and when we spoke he recalled the experience growing up with his father – driving across state lines while his dad was meeting with customers as he sold appliances for a retail chain. That experience on the road influenced his career path because Troy realized he didn’t want to sit behind a desk all day. Troy’s passions have intersected with the retail, automotive, and music industry. Growing up he excelled playing the violin and he later played the bass guitar in a band that was signed by Sony Epic Records. In fact, one of the inflection points was when he made the difficult decision to solely focus on his retail career. Within a few months, his former bandmates were touring sold out shows in Japan and Korea – and I could tell by the tone in his voice it would have meant a lot for him to be there. “On one hand it taught me to be more patient and think holistically about where I am in my life before I make a big decision. On the other hand, it led me to my opportunity with The North Face,” Troy explained. MORE FOR YOU Troy spent nearly twelve years at The North Face where he cut his teeth in outdoor sales leadership and operations. His collective experience along with his previous role leading North American sales at Mountain Hardwear has helped him crystalize his authentic leadership style. “The best leaders I’ve had the fortune to work for over the last 20 years led with trust. They empowered their people and were entrepreneurial. Most importantly, trust is a two-way street and it’s about being engaged with people. Not leaving them on an island and checking in with them weeks later.” Troy told me a story about how his predecessor, Joe Vernachio, was one of the best leaders he’s ever worked for. “It made me think of being a musician and building the complementary pieces of a band. Joe did an amazing job of building an amazing team. Then, he empowered us and lightly directed us.” Troy recalled an important decision he had to make about an opportunity that looked too good to be true. “I was nervous going into this conversation with Joe because this was a big decision. There was significant interest from a department store. It was a potential order with a lot of zeros behind it. I didn’t think the instant gratification was worth it because it would derail our focus, which thankfully turned out to be the right decision,” Troy stated. Troy calls the team the Humans of Hardwear, and the most important trait for additions to the company are people who are the right fit. “It’s the hardest thing. We talk a lot about the person’s vibe and how they’d fit in, but also folks who are willing to roll up their sleeves. Our mantra is there is no they, we are they,” Troy explained. While working hard is table stakes, Troy admitted that in order to show up as the best version of himself he needs to strike balance. “5 years into my career there was no balance. The cliche is failed romantic and personal relationships. I learned that you have to draw some hard lines. When I’m not at work, I’m not checking emails anymore. I firmly believe that you can’t have balance if your work isn’t satisfying first.” Unlike Miranda Oakley, Troy’s excursions don’t include climbing mountains without a rope. Kor Airshell Hoody Mountain Hardwear “Part of feeling that balance these days is often just getting outside for a walk and fresh air. Also, getting good food and sharing it with people you care about,” he said. As for what he keeps within arms reach — it’s the Kor Airshell Hoody. It’s a staple in Troy’s pack because of its versatility, fitting for the unpredictable climate in the Pacific Northwest.
