Arctic Cat Names Erik C. Nelson to Lead Snowmobile Division and Patricia L. Jones as Chief Human Resources Officer
Arctic Cat Inc., today announced that Erik C. Nelson is being promoted to vice president and general manager of the snowmobile division and international sales, effective April 1, 2016. The company also announced that Patricia L. Jones has joined as chief human resources officer, effective immediately. Nelson succeeds Brad Darling and Jones succeeds Willliam Nee, both of whom are pursuing other opportunities.

“We are pleased to welcome Erik and Patty to these important roles, as we continue to build an exciting, innovative and results-driven culture to achieve our growth goals,” said Christopher Metz, Arctic Cat’s president and chief executive officer. “I also want to thank Brad Darling and Bill Nee for their many years of leadership at Arctic Cat and significant contributions to helping us reposition the company for growth.”

Nelson joined Arctic Cat in 2013 as director of international sales, where he was responsible for leading the company’s sales and market development efforts outside of the US and Canada. Prior to joining Arctic Cat, Nelson served as vice president of sales and marketing for Marquis Yachts. In that position, he led global sales, marketing, service operations, and a network of 53 independent dealers in 28 countries. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire.

Metz stated: “Erik has demonstrated exceptional leadership of our international business in a challenging macroeconomic environment. Erik’s innovative thinking, strong brand and marketing skillset, and passion for the power sports industry will help fuel snowmobile market share gains.”

In her new role as Arctic Cat’s chief human resources officer, Jones brings nearly 30 years of senior executive experience at Minnesota-based companies across multiple disciplines, including human resources, law, corporate governance, operations, process improvement and communications.

“Patty brings a strong combination of legal and human resources expertise,” said Metz. “She has a proven track record of success in leading organizational development and transformation for multibillion-dollar corporations. Her passion for building talented teams that deliver results fits well with our aggressive growth goals.”

Most recently, Jones was senior vice president of administration for Lifetouch, Inc., the largest employee-owned photography company operating in the U.S. and Canada, where she led human resources, strategic planning and process improvement. Before that, Jones was executive vice president and chief administrative officer (CAO) for Allina Hospitals & Clinics, a multi-billion dollar health system. Jones’ previous experience also includes serving as CAO and general counsel for NYSE-listed H.B. Fuller

Team arctic drag racers unleash on the competition at hay days
Sep 25, 2015 - 11:39 AM - by NickJ
Victory in 10 of 19 Classes plus 23 Podium Finishes at the Premier Grass Drag Event

Thief River Falls, Minn. (Sept. 25, 2015) – Billed as the official start of winter, the Sno-Baron’s Hay Days grass drags proved to be a lesson in frustration for anyone that faced Team Arctic’s drag racers. Claiming 10 wins (of 19 classes), 23 podium finishes and victory in the biggest classes, Team Arctic was untouchable.

As two of the most compelling classes of the weekend, Stock 800 and Outlaw Shootout also epitomized Team Arctic’s domination at Hay Days. In the Stock 800 class, Dylan Roes led a 1-2-3-4 Arctic Cat sweep to prove the power, light weight and efficiency of Arctic Cat 8000 series XF and M mountain models compared to the competition. The Outlaw Shootout offered a look at the fully modified 4-stroke side of the spectrum, but the results were the same with Walter Joy leading 1-2-3-4 Arctic Cat sweep of insanely fast XF9000 Turbos.

The other Team Arctic racers who notched impressive victories included Will Ohara (who won two classes) Jade Gilland (who’s win in Pro Stock 600 was with a Speedwerx-modified Arctic Cat 600 DSI engine), Dave Gallano, Kyle Shilts, Jason Owens, Jim Neuman and Joseph Strong.

“Our amazing team of racers, tuners and crew members delivered an outstanding performance on drag racing’s biggest stage,” said Mike Kloety, Team Arctic Race Manager. “Dominating the Stock 800 final was particularly satisfying as everyone wants to know which brand’s 800 sled will come out on top. Our teams left no room for doubt that Arctic Cat is the one to beat!

“Seeing the incredible modified Arctic Cat 4-stroke machines in the Outlaw and Lake Racer classes was equally impressive. It’s a great reward for the amount of time and resources those teams pour into those machines!”

The success at Hay Days comes after a similarly dominant performance two weeks earlier at the Outlaw Drags in Princeton, Minn., where Team Arctic racers notched 14 wins.

“We greatly appreciate the effort and success shown by all the Team Arctic drag racers,” Kloety added. “They have already proved that Arctic Cat Wins More. Plus there are upcoming grass drag events where they’ll continue to lead the pack.”
