Paul Kim Departs SureFire After 19 years

Sunday, January 13th, 2013


SureFire announced yesterday on their Facebook page that the iconic Paul Kim is leaving the firm after 19 years of service. Many do not know that PK as he is known was the design force behind the now defunct Icon lights. It was a great spin-off brand but unfortunately never caught an audience.

After 19 years of service with SureFire and countless contributions, Paul Kim has decided to leave SureFire to pursue other opportunities. Paul Kim has been the Vice President of Engineering since the earliest days of the company. He holds over 40 patents dating back to the 1980s, and many of his innovations are integrated into just about every modern flashlight. He was a pioneer in the industry, and has created some of the best-engineered and most revered illumination products ever made. Everyone at SureFire thanks Paul for his many years of service, and we wish him only the best in his latest pursuits.
