Kahr Firearms Group (KFG) has promoted Jodi DePorter to director of marketing for the firearms group. DePorter will assume her new duties beginning October 1, 2017.
DePorter had recently been the national sales manager for Kahr Firearms Group and has been with the company since 2006. Prior to that, she held marketing positions at both ArmaLite and Springfield Armory. In her new role at Kahr Firearms Group, she will be responsible for all marketing services for the three brands: Kahr, Thompson/Auto Ordnance and Magnum Research. Jodi will oversee all public relations, media, marketing, as well as working with gun writers on field and test firearm evaluations.
“Jodi has always demonstrated her willingness to do whatever is necessary for the company to succeed” stated Frank Harris, VP of sales and marketing. “She has an extremely strong knowledge of firearms and understands the ebb and flow of our industry as well. In the years that I have worked with her, she has been a great asset to the Kahr Firearms Group.”
“As the national sales manager at KFG I really enjoyed working with our sales team and with our many dealers and distributors,” says DePorter. “It has been a very rewarding experience, and from that experience, it will truly help me as I step into my new role in marketing. I feel confident that my strengths in sales will also prove useful in my role as the director of marketing.”
