MacDaddy Sports Group brings expertise in brand knowledge, technical orientation and the ability to adapt to ever changing market needs.

MacDaddy Sports Group will develop a strong year-round business with Suunto's family of products that will meet the New England lifestyle.

“Our company is product-driven, and it is exciting to broaden our Amer family with quality products from Suunto,” says Ken MacDonald, owner of MacDaddy Sports Group LLC. “We understand the product offering, how it works and functions while relating it to the end user making Suunto a natural fit for MacDaddy Sports.”

MacDonald says he is motivated by a strong work ethic and love for the outdoors to sell strong products that match his personal and professional goals.
