It’s quite incredible that this small marketing team led by Ben Lines continues to accomplish so much with only a half dozen staffers armed only with their enthusiasm, innovation and creativity. In a rapidly consolidating industry dominated by massive programming groups, Sportsman has managed to combine consumer and affiliate marketing into one tight-knit squad of believers who traveled to more than 25 consumer shows and nearly 50 cable and industry events, logging nearly 100,000 airline miles in just 90 days during event season.

This small team of passionate nomads continue to impress. And they’re not done yet.
