Ronald Fowlkes was a member of the US Marines and a member of the St Louis Police Department as a SWAT Team officer. It was in these two position that Fowlkes gained so much knowledge in the world of law enforcement equipment. He is now co-owner of First Spear, one of the worlds biggest innovators in police and military equipment.
Ronald Fowlkes first heard of Eagle Industries during his time spent in the military. While picking his equipment up to put it on, he always noticed the company logo on the highest quality equipment available. When he left the military to pursue a career in law enforcement, he saw the very same logo.
Fowlkes says the equipment he used in the military was well designed and lasted a very long time. Fowlkes decided to join Eagle Industries. “In fact,” Fowlkes began “We like to tell the world that we are the Gucci or Ferrari of the tactical [equipment] world.”
Since joining Eagle Industries, he is now the co-owner of First Spear, one of the subsidiaries of Eagle Industries. As co-owner of First Spear, Fowlkes begins his days taking his children to school and then heading to the office. At the office he makes phone calls with clientele throughout the day. In addition to dealing with clients, he oversees large orders and makes sure that production in on track to begin packaging and delivering.
Under the leadership, the already successful, First Spear was able to expand even further. Fowlkes says the company is always looking for new ways to innovate their equipment; First Spear is always trying to make the gear lighter without sacrificing protection.
Fowlkes never doubted that the company would be successful because he knew first hand that the quality of First Spear’s equipment was miles ahead of any competitors. His first hand experience with the equipment also makes him the perfect choice for selling First Spear equipment. When he is trying to convince new clients to sign on with First Spear, he relies on his experiences in the field to explain why First Spear is the best product on the market.
