It’s a sad day when a family member leaves the paintball collective, but we wish “bon voyage” to Jason Kreisman, Marketing Manager for KEE Action Sports. Jason has worked with many people behind the scenes helping to promote the KEE Action Sports brands. Chances are that if you saw something about Empire, JT, or BT Battle Tested, Jason had a hand in helping it get exposure.
JK, as he was affectionately known within the community, leaves us with the following words, “For close to four years now, I have had the distinct privilege and pleasure of working with you to help grow our exciting sport. On many fronts the sport of paintball has seen an increase in participation globally and you are a significant part of this tremendous spike in play . The amount of time and money being invested in the game and the equipment is growing exponentially, and this bodes well for the future of paintball. It is with great certainty that exciting times are in store for the paintball industry and enthusiasts. As the sport continues to grow there will be other advances, but the most important thing is that we as an industry continue to expose as many people as possible to the sport. From there the possibilities are limitless!
So, at this time I wanted to take a moment to let you know that my last day with KEE Action Sports will be on May 25, 2012. I have been presented with a new and challenging opportunity that will take me out of the sports industry which I have been engrained in for over 20 years. I have enjoyed working for and with KEE and I appreciate having this fantastic opportunity to work with all of you in the media. With many of you, I have shared a unique camaraderie which I hope will continue in the years to come even though I will not be here with the company. I plan to maintain an active role in helping promote our sport when and where I can, as this sport has treated me with great respect and admiration.”
However, his leaving also creates an exciting opportunity for somebody! Will it be you?! See below for the employment opportunity at KEE Action Sports in New Jersey.
