Hornsby joins American Outdoor Brands from Vista Outdoor Inc., a publicly traded designer, manufacturer, and marketer of outdoor sports and recreation products, where he was Senior Director and Vice President of Global Distribution, Transportation, and Logistics.

The Logistics & Customer Service Division will be located in American Outdoor Brands' new national distribution center, currently under development, in the Columbia area of Boone County, Missouri.  The company announced its plans in March of this year to break ground on the new 500,000 sq. ft. facility during 2017.

James Debney, American Outdoor Brands Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The Logistics & Customer Service organization is a newly created strategic division that will support future growth for all of our American Outdoor Brands.  The development of our distribution center in Missouri is well underway. Due to be completed in 2018, the facility will serve as our Logistics & Customer Service business.  I am pleased to announce the arrival of Lewis Hornsby to lead this business.  Lewis is a highly accomplished professional with extensive operational and strategic leadership experience in distribution, transportation, and logistics functions.  His work has spanned a number of consumer and outdoor product companies with global reach, including Vista Outdoor, Exel/DHL, Con-Agra Foods, and Kraft Foods. His expertise will be instrumental in helping build our new Logistics & Customer Service organization into a world class business that supports our growing customer base and our diverse portfolio of products."

Hornsby joined Vista Outdoor in 2016 when Action Sports, a division of BRG Sports, Inc., was acquired by Vista.  At Vista Outdoor he oversaw global distribution and a large logistics and fulfillment organization.  At BRG Sports / Easton Bell Sports he served as Vice President of Global Distribution, overseeing logistics, transportation, and customs compliance for the global athletic performance and equipment manufacturer.  Previously, Hornsby was Senior Director of Carrier & Capacity Management with Exel/DHL; a Senior Director of Transportation/Distribution and Operations-Procurement for Con-Agra Foods; and Director of Transportation/Distribution and Operations for Kraft Foods. Hornsby earned his B.S. in Business Management from the University of South Carolina.
