passionate and committed to the local community as is BSN SPORTS. We had
many choices when considering how to take the next step forward. It is

as the bedrock of our company for multiple generations.”

terrific companies in the last twelve months and added more than 130
sales professionals to the Best Supply Network in Sports. This said, we
at BSN SPORTS aim to deliver a lot more than sporting goods. Our goal is
to elevate the experience for all student – athletes, and to enhance
school spirit and pride in hometowns and communities everywhere. We are
nothing without our fantastic people and their dedication to deliver
this “Greater Good”. The creation of this Network would be impossible
without the tireless efforts of Tevis Martin, our Executive Vice
President; Bob Dickman – Sr. Vice President and Director of
Acquisitions; Michael Caravati – Vice-President and Director of
Recruiting, and the numerous support and transition teams that make it
all happen without missing a beat. The Kohlmyer team will be integrated
into our Northeastern Region, under the leadership of Vice-President 
Steve Eybers. We continue to seek valuable team-mates across the USA in
places like Oregon, Nevada, California and Washington; the Mountain
States; Texas, Mississippi, Missouri, Kansas, West Virginia, Ohio, New
York, Florida, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. We will continue to focus on
partners that share our values and have a passion for building lifelong
relationships with customers.”
