Blackhawk Founder Mike Noell Announces Retirement

Blackhawk Products Group founder Mike Noell recently announced his retirement as President of Blackhawk Products Group. Based on his experience in the first Iraq war with gear that gave out, Mike decided to start a business that would design and manufacture reliable individual equipment. Soldier Systems Daily has known Mike since he founded the Hampton Roads-based Blackhawk almost 20 years ago and we cannot think of anyone else who has been as successful at developing as enterprising a marketing schema nor widespread brand recognition. In fact, he parlayed that success into Blackhawk’s recent acquisition by ATK. While we are sorry to see him go, Mike has always been a builder and an innovator so we don’t expect him to stay idle for long. We look forward to seeing where he directs his energy in the future. Congratulations Mike and family!
