Marilyn Bentz
Marilyn BentzAfter ending a career of nearly twenty years as a Medical Technologist, Marilyn’s business career was launched through an association with the legendary entrepreneur and industrialist, Chuck Saunders.  From the succeeding positions of National Sales Manager and Director of Marketing for Saunders Archery, she progressed through assignments as Director of Sales and Marketing and Vice President, National Sales for such industry pacesetters and leaders as McKenzie Targets, Knight and Hale/Code Blue-PRADCO and Golden Eagle/Satellite Archery/Bear Archery/North American Archery.
A former two-term board member of the Archery Trade Association’s Board of Directors, Marilyn currently serves as the Executive Director of the National Bow hunter Education Foundation; the worldwide curriculum based nonprofit organization for educating bow hunters.   She also served on its Board of Directors since 1996.
Her peers have recognized Marilyn’s accomplishments.  She is a recipient of the Fred Bear Achievement Award.  The award is named in honor of the most renowned of the founders of the modern target archery and bow hunting industry.
Marilyn’s business philosophy is profound in its simplicity.  She indentifies her philosophy as the “Think Factory” mentality; a skill acquired many years ago from her early mentor, Chuck Saunders.  By definition, it is to provide solutions to existing problems and create niche markets that are economically satisfying to both the manufacturer and the consumer.
