Sam Powers

Sam Powers is the visionary founder of Powers Pedersen Sales Group and the principal representative overseeing the eastern states of the PPSG territory. Sam’s journey in the outdoor industry began in 1987 when he ventured into the retail world, starting his career at a ski shop. Over the years, he accumulated invaluable experiences managing and buying for a resort out west before embarking on a journey as a sales representative. However, his inherent love for the Midwest eventually brought him back home, where he then founded the agency in 1998.

Sam’s career is built on diverse sales experiences, a relentless work ethic, analytical thinking, and a genuine curiosity that has earned him the respect needed to excel in the industry. His unwavering passion for adventure not only lends credibility to his presentations but also fuels his mission to share that enthusiasm with customers. Outside the professional realm, you’ll often find Sam alongside his wife, Abby, exploring trails by dirt bike or foot, navigating waterways via sailboat or motorboat, and reveling in snowy landscapes on skis or snowmobiles.
