KORE Outdoor names Marketing Manager

This hasn't specifically been News broken here, but it's definitely Paintball News worth knowing. KORE Outdoor has found a Marketing Manager who knows paintball inside and out, knows what works, knows the people, the sport, and the business of paintball. Our very own John Dresser has taken on that task, and of course, we know he'll be tremendously successful in this new venture. Congratulations, John!

Thanks to everyone who bought from PBretro.com this year. The site isn’t going away but it is definitely taking a back seat to the real work.


For those who might not know John, here's a little background from our About Us thread from (holy cow...) 2008.

John Dresser aka "John" - I started playing paintball with a rental Splatmaster in High School back in 1990 when the local field had a stock class day once a month. I played my first tournament in 1993 with a Phantom pump gun and even though we only won one game, I was hooked on the competition. I was recruited by a local traveling tournament team and played the MSPA series that year. I've also worked in the paintball industry since 1994 when I managed a small paintball field in Tennessee while going to school. After college I moved to Chicago in 1999 to work for PMI (now part of Kee) running their Customer Service department, teaching tech classes and helping out with Research and Development as well as Quality Control for 5 years. I first played professionally in the woods all the way back in 1998 playing 10-Man and I'm pretty sure I finally retired from traveling and playing professionally in the NPPL this year. I've owned literally hundreds of paintball guns over the years and I still play locally most weekends as well as traveling to some events. I'm pretty much just an all around paintball nerd that has no job title or even business cards. Here's a link to most the guns I currently own: Curator's Corner thread.


Following that thread, John had worked full time for PBNation through ownership by Ed Reiker, then through CrowdGather, and into Vertical Scope. John launched PBRetro late last year and in a very short time absolutely nailed the products players wanted. Taking the reins of Marketing for brands like JT and Empire opens up new possibilities for the future, both for John and for paintball players world wide.

Congrats John!

I like his other alter egos, too!

hrm, where's his Canadian cousin at. He had a hockey helmet on, in the profile picture. Apparently I can't search banned users, so that must be what happened.

If I make future rants on KORE, it doesn't include John. He's a made man and exempt from any KORE scumbag talk.

Lighten up.... it was just a joke. I completely understand that a Man needs to feed his family and maintain his yard. Scotts Turf Builder isn't cheap.

I heard that guy was a bum. He took off with all of Nick’s Magic the Gathering cards and scattered them to the wind.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
