Velocity Outdoor Seeks Director of Business Development

Velocity Outdoor – the company previously known as Crosman Corporation – is searching for a Director of Business Development.

It’s great to see the Bloomfield, New-York-based company continuing to grow and develop people as well as products! HAM believes that this is not a new position but back-filling for an internal promotion. At any event, it’s obviously a very significant position for the company.

Given the ever-expanding breadth of the Velocity Outdoor product line, we guess this position would be dealing with airguns, archery products, lasers and more. Although the job description just talks about providing “strategic advantages for Crosman in the marketplace.”
