How did you get started with Wilson/EvoShield?

I was born and raised in the Boston area and was working at Adidas/Reebok 6 years ago when my engagement to my husband brought me to Chicago. I worked across many industries in the Chicago area before I found my way back into the sporting goods industry in my new position at Wilson. After 6 months in my new role as Product Manager in the baseball division, I found out that Wilson was acquiring the EvoShield brand. Most recently, I have had the opportunity to play a significant role in integrating the EvoShield product portfolio into the Wilson baseball family of brands.

What, in your opinion, makes EvoShield a leader in baseball?

Authenticity, Innovation and Integrity are the 3 core values that embody the EvoShield brand. While new to our Wilson baseball portfolio, EvoShield’s core values line up perfectly with the core values of the rest of our brands making it a perfect match to round out the Wilson baseball portfolio. The EvoShield brand was created by athletes for athletes. The EvoShield team works tirelessly to deliver products that protect the body and keep athletes in the game. EvoShield products are trusted by the Pros….this is glaringly evident each time you watch an MLB game. Over 80% of MLB pros wearing protective gear are wearing EvoShield products. Our team strives to provide products that protect players existing injuries and/or protect against future injuries giving athletes a feeling of invincibility!

What’s your favorite part about working with Wilson baseball?

I have loved my experience working in the baseball group! My teammates are hardworking and competitive which makes my work both challenging and fun. As a Product Manager, my role requires me to work cross-functionally to be able to introduce new products and programs to market. This gives me the opportunity to meet new people throughout Wilson and to understand how their roles and jobs affect my role. I have also enjoyed working on 4 of 5 of our baseball brands; it has been fun working on products targeted to different consumers/markets. This keep my job interesting and keeps me on my feet!

What’s something about EvoShield that not a lot of people know?

The EvoShield brand mark actually has a handful of meanings behind it.

1. The Arrows – Represent the dispersion of energy when wearing EvoShield’s protective Gel-to-Shell™ technology.
2. The Elements – Represent the 3 brand pillars Authenticity, Innovation and Integrity.
3. The Contours – Represent for form-fitting nature of EvoShield’s protective Gel-to-Shell™ technology. G2S custom molds to fit the athlete to maximize protection and comfort.
4. The Superman – Represents the confidence athletes gain while wearing EvoShield’s protective gear. Knowing their protective gear will do its job when it counts, creates a feeling of invulnerability.

CAIUS SWOPES

How did you get started at Wilson?

My first experience with Wilson was College Football. The Wilson football was always there. But I was one of the few to wear Wilson gloves, wristbands, socks and the towel. My teammates used to tease me and call me “Mr. Wilson”-- it was more a term of endearment. Even though we have made some upgrades in our glove technology since my playing days, I still think those gloves back then were the best. I always wanted to combine my sports perspective and my technical knowledge. Wilson ended up being the perfect place to do that.

What makes Wilson a leader in the world of sporting goods?

Wilson is the leader in hard goods. Plus we have such a breadth of products. It’s what differentiates us from our competition. Wilson will always be able to be flexible since we dominate the product in hand. No matter what sport you play you’ll almost always touch something with a Wilson logo.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I love working in retail in general. There’s always a new season with new products and designs and opportunities to engage with customers. I was bought into Wilson long before I worked here so it feels natural to encourage consumers to do the same with our products.

What is something people may not know about Wilson?

I think people don’t realize what a rich history Wilson has. In a way that’s good because we are seen as a modern brand with a some retro to add character!

Do you have a favorite game-winning moment?

It’s important to have employees that have won and lost. Everyday you’ll need to go back to the days where maybe you were exhausted on the field but still gave a bit more, regardless of whether the outcome was a W or an L. Not everyone has the exact experience I’ve had, but everyone has struggled against something at some point. It’s not just about my game-winning moment. It’s about everyone’s.

Any tips for prospective employees?

We seek employees that refuse to settle for, “good.” We want to be great. My advice to prospective employees is to take time to figure out what makes you great. Figure out how you can apply that specifically to helping customers realize the benefits of stepping up to the plate with a DeMarini Bat or returning a serve with confidence knowing you have Luxilon strings or maybe even making that one handed catch with a Wilson glove.

How did you get your start at Louisville Slugger?

I applied for an open position through the “Careers” page of the website back in Summer of 2015. I immediately hit it off with the baseball team (no pun intended) and the rest is history. I took the job as the Product Manager for Louisville Slugger bats and moved with my wife and four boys from Detroit to Chicago that same summer.

What in your opinion makes Louisville Slugger a leader in baseball?

Louisville Slugger is a brand whose 133 year history is completely intertwined with the history of the game of baseball. What’s exciting about working at Louisville Slugger today is that the brand has a tremendous amount of innovation and momentum in the market right now – this comes from our intense focus on understanding the baseball/softball player’s needs (at all levels) and creating bats that make them better. This “player focused” innovation strategy mixed with the confidence of being one of sporting goods most iconic brands has allowed us to push the brand and the game of baseball to the next level.

What’s your favorite part about working with Louisville Slugger?

By far, my favorite part of my job is working with my teammates in the baseball division. My role as a Product Line Manager for bats puts me into contact with a diverse group of coworkers that are all committed to winning. Throughout a development cycle, I rely on a huge team of people to bring a product to the market – from the designers and engineers, to the marketing, sales, & commercial teams - everyone really steps up and contributes to making Slugger bats a success.

What’s something about Louisville Slugger that not a lot of people may know?

Over 80% of the hitters in Baseball’s Hall of Fame were under contract with Louisville Slugger.

What was your favorite game-winning moment of all time?

I grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, so the one that stands out for me was the 1984 Tigers World Series Championship. I was pretty young at the time but it was the first time I experienced a major sports win. It was the first time that I saw the passion & happiness that sports can bring to people of all backgrounds. I think that that is ultimately what drew me into a career in sporting goods – I like the emotional connection to the product and to the game.

What advice do you have for prospective employees?

Never stop learning. No matter where you are at in your career you can always learn something new from people and situations that come up in your everyday work. If you have that mentality you will always be making yourself better and improving your chances in your career. I have also had some great mentors over the years and I have learned a lot from just watching them work – the best leaders lead by example and you can learn a lot from them.
