Scott Morris Joins SwimSpray as Vice President of Sales

SwimSpray, LLC reports that, earlier this month, Scott Morris joined the company as Vice President of Sales.  Mr. Morris will support SwimSpray’s existing sales team by increasing distribution across swimming team dealers and swimming schools.

Before joining SwimSpray, Mr. Morris served as Speedo’s Vice President of Sales, managing team sales from 1994-2012 and receiving Speedo’s lifetime achievement award.  Tim Tate, the Executive VP of Speedo, describes Scott as ”one of the most important managers for the company” and “the hardest working person I have ever witnessed.”

Mr. Morris explains that he was attracted to SwimSpray’s potential for positively influencing the swimming community. “I think Dr. Chadeayne’s invention will have a broad and lasting impact on swimming.  It’s a big step forward with a problem that’s been around forever.  I’m excited to be a part of the project.”

According to SwimSpray’s President Andrew Chadeayne, Mr. Morris was the clear choice for helping SwimSpray increase awareness and grow its business to the next level.

Mr. Morris hopes to work with industry leaders to explain how to eliminate chlorine without focusing on the negative side-effects of chlorine. “I hope we can explain the benefits of SwimSpray without scaring people about chlorine.  We need to show the benefits of minimizing chlorine exposure without demonizing chlorine entirely.”

Dr. Chadeayne and Mr. Morris will meet with swim school owners on October 9-11 at the United States Swimming School Association’s (USSSA) National conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.

I’m still confused by this product’s value proposition: in chlorine, we have the perfectly blended deodorant plus cologne/perfume. One of the perks of swimming is all the money you save on those other products. Plus, who doesn’t just LOVE the smell of chlorine?

Hi Patrick—great point. I’m the inventor of this product and LOVE the smell of chlorine. I enjoy walking into a building and knowing that there is a pool nearby. The smell reminds me of swimming. At one point in my life, I could tell dozens of pools apart by their distinctive chlorine smells… sort of like a wine snob but with chlorine. It’s the chlorine side-effects that I couldn’t tolerate. When I started working a desk job, the dry, itchy skin & damaged hair really bothered me. You are correct, getting rid of the smell may not be terribly valuable to some swimmers.

I also didn’t see the appeal when I swam everyday. However, I now feel the effects of chlorine after retiring and taking a long break from the sport: the itch as it seeps into my skin, the herbicide effects on my hair, and the (now) pungent smell. I still like the smell, but don’t want everyone else to know where I’ve been so I use a little bit so it’s not so obvious.

I can speak firsthand on what a great all-around person Scott Morris is. I work for a company that sells Speedo so I have worked with him in the past and look forward to continuing to working with him in the future through SwimSpray. The SwimSpray crew is first-rate and Scott Morris is a fabulous addition to the team! We wish them the best as we continue to value the partnerships between our store and the brands we carry.
