For the last year, Geoff served as SPG’s Category Manager for the Backpack and Eyewear programs. Prior to employment with SPG in the spring of 2014, Geoff served a 23-year career in the Air Force as an F-16 fighter pilot, retiring as a Colonel. He graduated from the United States Air Force Academy with a Bachelor’s degree in Astronautical Engineering.

Geoff’s career led him to serving in multiple locations around the Continental US, Korea, Germany, and combat tours in support of Operation JOINT ENDEAVOR and Operation IRAQI FREEDOM.

In 2015, SPG purchased the Black Rhino brand, well-respected within the tool industry for its focus on high quality and value.

“I am thrilled to be a part of SPG’s newest exciting initiative,” says Maki. “SPG now owns a great brand in Black Rhino and enjoys the continued support of our strong partners at Mossy Oak and Realtree, who have offered us exclusives in the hand tool category – the next several years are going to be a great ride as we grow this business!”
