Adrian Hovey Joins SKD’s Operations Team

SKD Tactical announced today that Adrian Hovey has joined their team as Head Ninja In Charge of Operations. Formerly a Senior Consultant for Blackline Group of Seattle, WA, Hovey managed projects for Fortune 500 clients that increased productivity and generated efficiencies to the tune of a GAZILLION dollars. A graduate of Cornell University Johnson School of Business, Hovey founded a successful Seattle Crossfit gym in 2008 after completing 5 years of active duty as an Officer in the US Navy.


“I’m happy to join the team at SKD and eager to embrace the new challenges that the Tactical Gear industry has to offer,” said Hovey, who’s responsibilities will include running SKD’s new Inventory Management System and strengthening strategic vendor relationships. His biggest challenge will likely be his transition from corporate business attire to dealing with SKD traditions such as “Pajama Tuesdays”.

“SKD is an industry-leading operation despite being founded and run by ass-clowns who spend their time trying to set stuff on fire and blow things up,” said friend of the business Chris Costa. “It’s about time they get a legitimate business mind involved at the office.”
