BRG Sports, a designer and marketer of innovative sports equipment, protective products and apparel, has announced the appointment of Dan Arment as president and chief executive officer.
Arment steps into the CEO role previously held by Terry Lee, who will become a strategic advisor to the company and continue to serve as executive chairman. In addition, Arment is being promoted to CEO of Riddell.
Arment joined the company 15 years ago and has held a number of key positions within the organisation. In addition to his role as president of Riddell, he most recently served as executive vice president of BRG Sports and as president of Bell Cycling Products. As a BRG Sports executive and board member, Arment supported the company’s divestures of its baseball/softball, hockey and action sports businesses, while also helping further its investment in head protection.

As BRG Sports steps into the future with a primary focus on maximising investments in our remaining assets, Riddell and MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System), Dan’s experience guiding Riddell to unprecedented growth and financial performance, while navigating industry challenges, positions him well for this exciting new role.”
Dan Arment said, “BRG Sports is an outstanding company made up of an extremely talented and hardworking team with featured brands like Riddell and MIPS that are performing well in the market. I am honoured to be chosen to lead BRG Sports in the next phase of its growth and innovation.”
