MADISON, N.C., May 21, 2008 – Bob Behn, former President of Marlin Firearms, has been elected to the Board of Directors of Remington Arms Company, Inc., and will serve as a Senior Advisor to the Chairman of the Board, Paul Miller. Behn will transition to his new role effective June 2, 2008.
Signing on with Marlin Firearms in 1969 as an Assistant Advertising Manager, Behn has dedicated 39 years of service to Marlin and the shooting sports industry. He was elected to the Board of Governors of the National Shooting Sports Foundation in 1990, serving as Executive Vice President in 1995 and more recently in the role of Co-Vice Chairman.
“Bob was the grinding force behind Marlin Firearms for decades,” stated Tommy Millner, Remington Arms CEO. “His product visions are too numerous to list but all contributed to Marlin’s position as one of the world’s finest firearms manufacturers. I could not be more pleased that he chose to stay deeply involved with Remington and Marlin, as well as in his various industry roles, instead of choosing retirement.”
Noting Behn’s vast contributions to the industry, Millner added, “It is a personal pleasure for me to have Bob’s experience, knowledge and vision to help steer the larger enterprise which we now own.”
