“In my 30 plus years in Hood River,” said Bukovansky, “I have always watched and admired the Logosz brother’s creative and innovative approach to product design and development. They have never been afraid to push the limits within the space. Watching them launch Slingshot and then seeing the progression of the brand’s category leadership over the years has been impressive. The opportunity to join a category-leading group of brands that has a passionate staff and team all in my local community is one that I am excited to dive into.“
