SAINT PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SB Tactical™, the inventor and manufacturer of the Stabilizing Brace™, is pleased to announce the hiring of Jeff Creamer as Vice President of Business Development and Amy Pevear as Vice President of Marketing. Creamer and Pevear join the SB Tactical team from the highly regarded firearms manufacturer, SIG SAUER, Inc.
Today's announcement marks a significant milestone for SB Tactical. In 2015, the company completed a critical transition from operating under exclusivity agreements with SIG SAUER, Inc. and Century Arms to selling directly to consumers through the SB Tactical online retail store. The addition of Creamer and Pevear will further empower SB Tactical to aggressively seek new original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partnerships, develop platform-specific offerings, expand distribution channels and cultivate a more robust consumer direct sales model. SB Tactical will be announcing several new Stabilizing Braces™ in Q1 2016.
SB Tactical innovates, designs, develops, and manufactures accessories for firearms and personal defense weapon (PDW) pistols. The initial product introduced to market in 2013 was the SB15® Stabilizing Brace, often referred to by enthusiasts as the "SIG Brace." The product was developed specifically to improve shooting accuracy and reduce felt recoil when firing with one hand. That same year, the SB15 was named the Firearm Accessory of the Year and the Stabilizing Brace has since revolutionized shooting sports for those in need of improved stabilization and assistive devices.
"Jeff and Amy add unmatched experience and market knowledge to the SB Tactical team as we continue positioning the company for future growth and expansion," said Alex Bosco, Founder and CEO. "Their presence will enable SB Tactical to further expand our market footprint and enhance our ability to develop and deliver innovative products."
"The entrance of SB Tactical into the market in 2013 reinvented the dying platform of AR pistols, creating an entirely new category of firearms. The company and their product lines have redefined modern shooting sports, which is largely evidenced by the growing number of manufacturers that are developing PDW-style pistols today," said Jeff Creamer. "Tremendous opportunity lies ahead for SB Tactical as the company pivots for growth and the rollout of expanded product lines in the future."
"SB Tactical presents a unique opportunity to further develop a world-class accessories company in a fast growing market. Our team is excited to focus on expanding our product line, building a recognizable brand within the industry, and deploying business to business and consumer based market strategies that will drive sales and new product development," stated Amy Pevear.
