Ronald Fowlkes first discovered the love he had for quality military equipment during his time in the military and the police force. There was only one brand that Ronald Fowlkes trusted above all others: FirstSpear. Now, Fowlkes is the part owner of FirstSpear.
FirstSpear creates some of the best equipment for police and military personnel on the market today. The company doesn’t only produce vests, they also produce belts, holsters, hats and casual apparel.
From the moment Ronald Fowlkes first spotted the FirstSpear logo during his time with The Marines, he knew that FirstSpear made quality products. When he joined the SWAT Team in St. Louis, he once again took notice of the FirstSpear. Once he found out that FirstSpear was produced in his home state of Missouri, he decided to search them out and partner with them.
Due to his twenty year military and police career, Fowlkes is one of the few people on the planet who have the right to recommend life saving equipment to the people who really need it. Fowlkes believes in the quality of his company’s gear because he himself used it during life threatening situations. If FirstSpear is good enough for Fowlkes, it is good enough for the police forces he supplies.
Fowlkes spends his days making calls and receiving calls from potential and current clients. Despite the work that Fowlkes does to sell his product, he claims that he cannot compete with the simple advertising mechanism of word of mouth. FirstSpear has clients all over the country already, Fowlkes and his company rely on their clients to spread information about FirstSpear’s quality products.
Outside of work, Fowlkes spends his time in the world of hockey. When he isn’t coaching a youth hockey league, he is writing about hockey on his blog. With the incoming Winter Olympics, Fowlkes took the opportunity to speak on the North and South Korea hockey team. The two rival countries teamed up for the first time via a joint venture to the Winter Olympics in South Korea. North Korea sent a few of its best hockey players to join in with South Korea as a single unit. Despite the small scale cooperation seen in this instance, this is process towards peace towards the two very different Koreas.
