A new approach to brand ambassadorship.
Jacksonville, Florida –Safariland®, a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, today announced the formation of a new breed of brand ambassadors: CADRE.
“In the technical sense, a CADRE is a selected group of specially trained and skilled individuals brought together for one specific purpose or mission,” said Tim Drnec, Vice President of Marketing & Commercial Sales at Safariland. “And that’s exactly what Safariland needs right now. The Safariland CADRE will be advocates for Safariland products and its mission to save lives with integrity, loyalty and grit.”
Safariland’s CADRE is a new approach to brand ambassadorship. “Our CADRE are changing what it means to be a brand ambassador,” Christina Rhine, Digital-Social Media Manager for Safariland said. “No longer will these individuals be seen as social media influencers. They’re experienced advocates in the markets we touch, and contributors to the future of our products. They bring years of raw experience with Safariland products, and authentic product concepts. Collectively we will achieve our goals to provide the best equipment possible.”
The CADRE bring first-hand expertise in product application, life dependent scenarios and training capabilities. Among them are a retired Special Forces SGT. Major, a competitive mounted shooter and veteran of the 75th Army Ranger Regiment, a Tactical Games athlete, conservationists and huntsmen, competitive shooting champions and instructors, business owners, a SWAT Team Leader, law enforcement officers, and a family of five competitive shooters. With these backgrounds and mindsets, they will collectively bring authentic product feedback from the field to Safariland to elevate Safariland products and increase the company’s ability to enact its mission: “Together we save lives.”
