Previously, he has held positions with Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn Kids, Charming Charlie, and many others. Josh is extremely goal oriented and has made a positive impact with each of the retailers he has worked with, leaving behind many disappointed customers that his past stores say still call asking for him by name.

As for outdoor pursuits, Josh regularly spends time camping, hiking, and fishing local lakes and rivers in his home state of Mississippi with his family.
Fishing Manager: Barret Manning
A Native of Jackson, MS, Barrett grew up fishing and duck hunting in the Mississippi Delta. While attending Ole Miss, he took advantage of the close proximity of the White, Little Red, and Norfork Rivers a few hours north in Arkansas, making the trek up two to three times a month. Barrett's great experience and interactions at Orvis Jackson fueled his desire to work for Orvis. He stated, I am beyond excited to be working for Orvis and cant wait to share my knowledge of fly fishing and the outdoors with our Birmingham customers.
