In what has become a consistent theme during the last 18-24 months, Bear® Archery announced another addition to their Product Management Team-Richard Guillory. Guillory has been named Product Manager- Accessories, focusing on their Trophy Ridge® and Rocket® Broadheads product lines.
“We’re very happy to bring Richard [Guillory] on board”, stated Jack Bowman, VP and General Manager of Bear Archery. “He represents what we are really all about in our team building process–adding to the breadth and depth of the skill sets of our Product Teams. To meet the demands of today’s hunters and archery enthusiasts, you’ve got to recruit and build on diverse and top notch talent-regardless of what industry they come from.”
Bowman’s reference is to Richard Guillory’s experience managing technical engineering and project engineers in the oil field service business. But coupled with his diverse background, Guillory also shares the passion for archery that is common to the rest of the Bear Archery organization. After receiving his BS in Mechanical Engineering and an MBA from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, he was a Project Manager for M-I SWACO (an oil field service company) where he developed his energetic and aggressive management style. This experience along with his keen sense for detail has prepared him to be a genuine asset to the Bear-Trophy Ridge Team.
Mark Wenberg, Director of Product Management/Development for Bear Archery explained that Guillory has a degree, formal training and experience in a very different field from archery, and yet he [Guillory] was brought up spending time with his whole family at the hunting camp…it is this combination of education, training, experience and passion in its people that makes Bear-Trophy Ridge the well-rounded Team that it is.
Bear Archery manufactures and distributes a full-line of archery products including compound bows, traditional bows, quivers, arrow rests, fiber optic sights, stabilizers, arrows, broadheads, and other related accessories under the Bear® Archery and Trophy Ridge® brands.
