HeadHunters NW, the leading executive recruiting firm specializing in talent acquisition for the international small arms, shooting sports, and defense industries, presents the next episode of the HeadHunters NW Podcast. Hosted by Shaylene Keiner, President of HeadHunters NW, this segment features an insightful discussion with Kenyon Gleason, Executive Director of the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW).

In Episode #025, Keiner delves into the pivotal role NASGW plays in representing distributors and wholesalers and fostering success in the two-step distribution model. “With a focus on building strong relationships between distributors and manufacturers, NASGW indirectly serves a network of retailers, contributing to the industry’s vitality,” says Keiner.

The discussion emphasizes the importance of the annual NASGW tradeshow as a platform for foundational relationship-building among businesses of all sizes. “Despite technological advances, the handshake remains the crucial element in the industry, offering an opportunity for genuine, unplugged interactions,” Keiner explained.

Keiner highlights the role of NASGW’s SCOPE program, a comprehensive data collection initiative that offers a view of market trends and sales channels. By incorporating point-of-sale and retail components into the data, SCOPE enables stakeholders to trace a product’s journey from manufacturing to the end customer. “This transparent approach empowers businesses to make informed decisions, optimizing inventory and mitigating risks,” she added.

“We encourage the industry to stay tuned for NASGW’s upcoming initiatives, ranging from advocacy to banking, as well as an array of informational resources,” says Keiner.
