DREAM JOBS: LIVING WHAT YOU LOVE

ddJON KLUITER
JUST 1 HELMETS DIRECTOR OF MARKETING

STARTING POINT: “I started in the industry as a sales rep right out school. I graduated with a teaching degree that I never put to use. For ten years, I was in sales and management with a large helmet brand. Then I spent several years as the owner of a rock n’ roll guitar shop. I came back to the powersports business and have been with H&H Sports Protection (which owns Just 1 Helmets) for 5 years.”

THE JOB: “I work with some of the best people in the industry. I lead a team that sells our own brands, as well as doing product development and manufacturing. I manage our sales division, marketing division, negotiate athlete contracts and work with retailers as we build Just 1 in North America. I work in an industry focused on fun, and I know our products save lives. Every time we receive a ‘thank you’ letter from someone who needed our product to perform in a crash, it reminds me how important what we do really is.”
