New Bullfrog CEO – Jerry Pasley

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH –   Bullfrog International, LC, is pleased to announce the hire of Jerry Pasley to the position of Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Pasley was formerly the Executive Vice President of Sales at Jacuzzi Hot Tubs and Sundance Spas.

Mr. Pasley will assume responsibility for the general leadership, sales direction, and day to day decisions at Bullfrog Spas. David Ludlow, former CEO, Founder, and the inventor of Bullfrog’s patented JetPak System, will remain with Bullfrog Spas as President and will focus on further Product Research and Development and Business Development. Ludlow welcomed the addition of Pasley to the executive team and, in fact, was instrumental in his acquisition.

Ludlow expressed his support and approval of this move: “Jerry Pasley is not only a seasoned pool and spa industry veteran, but more than that, he shares the vision of what Bullfrog can become and he has the ability and industry influence to propel Bullfrog into a leadership role in the marketplace.”

Mr. Pasley has nearly 30 years of experience in the hot tub industry, with a focus on sales management and sales strategy. He has served on the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals’ Hot Tub Council and has considerable experience in the development of retailer and distribution networks. He currently sits on the Board of Directors of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) as a Director at Large.

When asked about the decision to leave one of the major manufacturers in the industry, especially considering their history and recognizable brand, Mr. Pasley replied, “In making this decision, I was not concerned about what Bullfrog Spas is, or is not, at the present time, but what it can become. I can see enormous potential at Bullfrog going into the future. The track record of impressive growth is already there and with their patented technology and quality Bullfrog will soon be an industry leader.”

Mr. Pasley’s goals for Bullfrog include securing solid financing plans for Bullfrog dealers and the establishment of enhanced sales and marketing programs to expand the influence of Bullfrog Spas and the JetPak System. Pasley commented on these plans, “I’m confident that we can explore and implement plans to allow dealers to show more spas. Along with the expansion of sales networks, this will simply allow many more people the chance to discover the unique benefits and the reliability that you get with a JetPak-powered Bullfrog Spa.”

Bullfrog Spas Helps Thaw Polar Plungers

Hi-Tech Hot Tub Company Helps Thaw Frozen Swimmers

Bullfrog Spas provides hot tub to help swimmers warm up during the Polar Plunge, a benefit for the Special Olympics.

couple thaws in hottubSalt Lake City, UT – Bullfrog International, manufacturers of innovative hot tubs, was proud to sponsor the 2011 Polar Plunge on Saturday February 12. The event encourages brave swimmers to leap into icy waters for charity and was held at Pelican Bay Marina in Saratoga Springs, Utah. The Polar Plunge is put on by the Saratoga Springs Police Department to raise money for Utah Special Olympics.

Bullfrog Spas provided a working Model 662 hottub heated to around 100° F to help participants warm up after their brave swim. As one can imagine, the warm portable spa was an especially welcomed addition to the event.

The event helped to raise thousands of dollars to benefit the Special Olympics of Utah. Lyn Rees, of Utah Special Olympics, commented to local media, “It is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support local Special Olympics athletes by jumping or slowly crawling into the frigid, icy waters.”

The theme of the event was “We’re freezin’ for a reason!” and the smiles everywhere showed that this was a fun event and a great cause. Local eateries donated donuts and hot dogs to both jumpers and participants and a local coffee shop donated free, and much needed, hot coffee and hot chocolate.

One of the favorite features of the event was the costume contest. Teams and individuals donned attire ranging from classics like the Wizard of Oz and Incredible Hulk to some futuristic costumes from the movie “Despicable Me.”

Chain saws and a backhoe were necessary to create an opening in the ice and safety divers had to periodically toss ice chunks off to the sides to maintain open water. This was Bullfrog’s second year sponsoring the event and the Bullfrog Spas Model 662 was a great hit once again. This 6-person hot tub was often overfilled with appreciative swimmers needing a warm-up after their swim.
