*Corey is Responsible for the Management of NBS Exclusive Brand Products

I was born and raised in rural Missouri with a lifelong passion for the outdoors and conservation. My professional life has followed my personal interests for the past 22 years which started with an amazing independent dealer near my hometown, a 12-year education in western Nebraska with some great industry folks, and most recently a quick stop in Wisconsin.

In my last 15 years, I have implemented strategic initiatives, lead several teams, managed, developed, and sourced product for several categories including hunting apparel, hunting equipment, camping, cutlery, dogs, radio & GPS, shooting, gun storage, ammunition, and archery. I’ve also had the opportunity to vet several factories abroad and develop longstanding relationships within the industry.

My values of hard work, honesty, family, and fun all align very well with both the industry and especially NBS.

My wife and I have two spirited daughters, a mix breed rescue, and a new English pointer. When not going to practices and games for the girls, we like to get outside in search of new experiences.
