Not that too many will care but I have resigned from Dagger as a brand and team manager. Time to pursue other things and paddle more. It has been an awesome journey and I appreciate every minute of it. Thanks to the original crew that taught me a lot. Steve Scarbourgh, Joe Pulliam, Tony Lee, Mike Steck, Andy Gilliam, Marc Lyle, Brian brown and Snowy. To all the team Dagger members who I still believe are the greatest representatives in the industry on so many levels. It has been one of the greatest gifts in my life to work with them and learn the industry from R&D to final product. And the paddling trips! Now there will be even more time to get after it on the water. Good luck to Dagger and the crew in Easley. Since the formal announcement went out I thought I would share.
Good Afternoon, It's with great regret that we announce Ken "Hobie" Hoeve's resignation as manager of Team Dagger so that he can devote more time to other industry-related interests. However, while we will miss his leadership, we won't be losing his passion, commitment and guidance as Hobie will continue to be involved as an extremely valuable member of the team. . Hobie began his relationship with Dagger 12 years ago. During this time, he has been an important part of its growth and has always been one of Dagger's most passionate ambassadors, fully dedicating himself to both the brand and the team. I personally want to thank him for all of the assistance he provided to me and I'm grateful that we'll continue to have the opportunity to work together. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact me ([email protected]
