A native of Dallas, Texas, and a lifelong hunter and fisherman, Robert Schoenvogel has been named president of PRADCO Outdoor Brands. An EBSCO (parent company of POB) employee since 2006, Schoenvogel has held several leadership roles including executive vice president and chief operating officer of EBSCO Subscription Services (the company’s largest revenue division). In addition, Schoenvogel has managed multiple profit centers and international business for EBSCO.
“Robert is well-suited for this positon,” said EBSCO President Tim Collins. “While working for our Subscription Services division, Robert gained strong experience working with the numerous development, order entry and customer service teams on improving systems and workflow processes to provide industry-leading service to our customers.”
Also moving up the company food chain is Bart Stephens. Part of the EBSCO team since 2005, Stephens, the former general manager of Wingscapes, will now serve as the vice president and general manager for POB’s Hunting Division.
“Bart has the right combination of product knowledge, business sense, commitment to the company, people skills and drive to lead our efforts in the hunting area going forward,” Collins said. “He understands our history and products and knows what it will take to restore our reputation and prominence in the industry – and then move us to the next level.”
