Industry Veteran Mark Thomas Joins ThermaCELL

Outdoor industry communications and marketing veteran Mark Thomas joined ThermaCELL, a division of Schawbel Corporation, as marketing manager. ThermaCELL, an active POMA Corporate Partner, markets an area mosquito repellent system in the United States and 28 countries worldwide.

Mark will lead marketing activities in the U.S. for the hunting, camping and outdoor-living business segments. Josh Silvia, the former marketing associate, was promoted to marketing manager for ThermaCELL Heated Insoles earlier this year.

“Mark’s deep experience marketing to mass consumers as well as hunting, fishing and outdoor enthusiasts makes him an ideal fit for this position,” said Allegra Lowitt, vice president of marketing.

A marketing veteran, Mark has held posts with world class branding organizations such as Volvo-Penta, Continental Airlines and Invisible Fence. Mark was selected for the position because of his diverse skill set which also includes experience in the outdoor and firearms industry with Remington, the National Shooting Sports Foundation and most recently Walther Firearms.
