At the recent 2020 SHOT Show, Buck Knives awarded their “2019 Sales Rep Agency of the Year” to Upper Canada Sports and “Sales Rep of the Year” to Matt Hicks of Tackett Brothers, Inc.

Upper Canada Sports and Tackett Brothers, Inc., are independent manufacturer’s representatives with long standing relationships with Buck Knives. The Buck Knives brand continues to be well represented through the hard work and dedication of Buck’s external sales reps.

Matt Hicks manages the upper mid-western states and recently took on an expanded new role as Regional Manager for the Tackett Brothers agency. “Matt has been very successful in his territory by building relationships with each account and has expanded his role to help train new representatives within the Tackett Agency. We appreciate Matt’s efforts and this is not the first time he has been named Rep of the Year. Matt consistently brings his A game on behalf of Buck Knives,” said Mike Silverberg, VP of Sales for Buck Knives.
