The NASGW Leadership Awards are given to association members that exemplify a commitment to two-step distribution in the sporting goods industry and provide outstanding value and service. Nominees for the NASGW Leadership Awards are evaluated on four key criteria: 1) distribution policy, 2) marketing, 3) sales and promotion, and 4) logistics, operations, and NASGW industry support.
“In 2019, SIG SAUER brought new innovation to the marketplace across all of our divisions including the introduction of the P320 XFIVE Legion pistol with our proprietary tungsten infused grip module, as well as the P365 SAS, while SIG SAUER Electro-Optics combined the award-winning BDX and KILO rangefinding technology into the KILO3000BDX rangefinding binoculars,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer, Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “It’s truly an honor to be recognized for innovation by our industry peers at NASGW for the second year in a row with this Leadership Award, and we are looking forward to working closely with our distribution partners to introduce new, exciting products in 2020.”
