The National Rifle Associate, NRA, proudly announced the election of Pete Brownell as the organization’s new president on May 1, 2017. Brownell has been an NRA Life Member since birth, and has also served as the Chief Executive Officer for his family’s legendary business, Brownells.
As American Hunter reports:
He brings a record of leadership, a passion for our outdoors and shooting sports traditions, and vigor to protect and defend the Second Amendment.
Brownell has also served on the NRA Board of Directors as the chairman of the Membership Committee, when he was elected in 2010. In addition, he has been a member of the Finance, Law Enforcement Assistance, Publications Policies, and Sport Shooting Committees.
Brownell is also the former chairman of the Board of the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers and a former member of the U.S. Army’s Command and General Staff Foundation Board. Outside the office, he is an accomplished athlete and avid outdoorsman.
Browness responded to his election, “It’s an honor and privilege to serve the 5 million members of the National Rifle Association of America. I am humbled to serve alongside Wayne LaPierre – the true heart and soul of this Association and to walk in the footsteps of my predecessors,” he continued,”I’m a proud NRA member from day one who grew up with a passion for guns, our rich hunting heritage, and a passion to strengthen our Second Amendment.”
The NRA Board of Directors re-elected Wayne LaPierre as the NRA Executive Vice President. Under his trusted leadership, the NRA has grown to unprecedented levels, becoming the preeminent force in American politics and strengthening its position as the nation’s foremost defender of the Second Amendment. Upon his re-election, LaPierre reappointed Josh Powell to the position of Executive Director of NRA General Operations and Chris W. Cox to the position of Executive Director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action.
He is more than qualified to responsibly lead and govern the organization. I think that Brownell will do splendidly as the new president of the NRA. What about you?
