North Ridgeville, Ohio — Friday, 25 September 2015

Raven Concealment Systems officially announced today the appointment of Mr. Matt Edwards to the position of Military Applications Specialist.

Matt joins RCS from Surefire, where he worked as a Military Tactical Applications Specialist on and off from 2010-2015. Prior to joining the tactical industry, Matt retired from a 20+ year career in the United States Army, during which he served in Operations Desert Shield, Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom with the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions and as a Ranger Instructor at 6th Ranger Training Battalion in Eglin, Florida. Matt’s career culminated as a Rifle Company First Sergeant.

Matt will support Raven’s sales and design departments; leveraging his extensive military experience to assist military end-users in selecting the best products for their needs from the RCS line, as well as helping to drive new product development via capabilities assessments and direct feed-back from military clients.

“I’m happy to have been invited to be part of the Raven team,” said Edwards. “I’ve used and trusted their gear for years, and this position will allow me to help shape new evolutions of RCS products to make them more beneficial for our military clients.”

“I like working with Matt almost as much as I like sweet tea and cigarettes” said John Chapman, CEO of Raven Concealment Systems. “Having Matt’s special combination of experience, personal integrity and dedication to the individual combatant strengthens our already robust sales and design teams.”

RCS is putting together a bunch of rockstars! Congrats to Matt, he’s a great guy!

    Way to go Matt! Great guy with a solid no bullshit, Paratrooper background!

  3. PPGMD says:

    And yet they haven’t expanded the list of guns supported in over a year.

    Even Raven Concealment die hards, like myself who used them well before they exploded due to Magpul’s videos, have had to move on to other brands.

        Yeah, hurry up and make some drop knee holsters for the awesome new Taurus Curve and the life saving Judge already! Get to work, Chappy!

          This is exactly what I had in my mind’s eye when I read that. Chappy is quite the politician.

        • PPGMD says:

          So if anyone wants a holster for a newish gun they are automatically a Timmie?

          The gun I am thinking of is already supported by Safariland for ALS duty holsters. A company that is notorious for being slow moving has a holster out for it before even Raven Concealment has a carry holster.

      Matt is a great American and will do awesome things for Raven. They got a dedicated employee that goes above and beyond for his customers with Matt.

  7. SC says:

    Matt is an awesome addition to RCS and the funniest guy I know. I’ve never talked to the man without laughing. Great catch RCS!

  8. Haji says:

    I worked with Matt for many years at ATS before Surefire poached him, and more importantly have been friends with him longer than that. He is a man of integrity and one of the few people on the planet I would implicitly trust my life to.

    In terms of this gig, he knows what’s up and will do great things at RCS.
