Sales Rep Showcase: Meet Dan Hocken
We love our TAMs (Territory Account Managers) and Dan is just one example of how great they are! Dan Hocken is your go to guy for GK Cheer Apparel in Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Nebraska. His vast cheer experience and genuine love of the sport solidifies why he is a perfect GK sales representative.
It was in high school that Dan started his love affair with cheer, carrying it on through college at Iowa State University. It was at college that he decided cheer was the life for him and was fortunate to travel all over the world because of it! He has been coaching cheer for about 13 years now. However, his latest endeavor the opening of a gym called TR➶BE Athletics might be his best and bravest feat yet.
“As a coach/gym owner, my favorite thing about GK is the reaction of kids when they try on GK for the first time. Hearing HS kids put on a sample uniform or the all star kids get their practice wear and uniform and just go non-stop about how it FEELS. They all love that it’s not a hot, scratchy, heavy fabric – it’s truly engineered to move with them!” said Dan.
As seen in the video Dan is a huge fan of our new sublimation fabrics, which you can read more about here. The three dimensional sublimated fabrics bring your cheer apparel to life with a measure of depth and dimension unlike anything you’ve seen before.
