Talking Spas with Olympic Hot Tub’s Don Riling
“On a recent sunny summer day, “View From the Top” checked in with Don Riling, the new president of Olympic Hot Tub, a Seattle-based retailer. The topic was (surprise!) hot tubs, and in a short Q&A, he shared some observations. Here are excerpts:
Q: You’ve been at Olympic Hot Tub since 1995. As you think back over the last couple of decades, what are some things that stand out?
A: There’s a big misperception in the industry that this is still a luxury item instead of something people need for health and wellness, that it’s just a nice-to-have item or a dream item.”
