Nampa, ID (March 2023) – Caracal USA, a leading international manufacturer of small arms for the law enforcement and defense markets, announces Bill Silver, a firearms industry sales veteran, as the new vice president of sales for the American Market. Silver worked for ten years in distribution, and served as the vice president of sales for three well-known firearms brands, including over a decade at SIG Sauer as the vice president of sales.

“Over the years, Bill has built a solid reputation within the shooting sports market as a tireless sales executive with deep knowledge of our distribution chain and strong working relationship with distributors, box stores, and dealers,” Jeffrey Spalding, president and CEO of Caracal USA, said. “Bill will be driving our commercial programs and expanding the brand nationwide.”

“The Caracal brand is well-known and admired worldwide, especially in law enforcement and military communities,” Silver added. “With our profit-inducing sales programs, we fully intend to bring the Caracal name and its high-quality products to as many retailers as possible.”
