“Tom Mihalek is the type of experienced, successful, hard-working leader that we look for as we build out American Rebel – America’s Patriotic Brand, and we are fortunate that he has accepted the CEO position at our wholly owned subsidiary, Champion Safe Company. We are convinced that Tom is the ideal choice as the next leader of Champion Safe,” stated Andy Ross, Chairman and CEO American Rebel Holdings, Inc. “We’re not just a safe company, we are a patriotic lifestyle brand and a proud supporter of the Second Amendment.

Mr. Mihalek, as CEO of Champion Safe, will report directly to Corey Lambrecht, Chief Operating Officer of American Rebel Holdings. “I have known Tom Mihalek for over 20 years, first meeting him when I was the Executive Vice President of Smith & Wesson Holdings, shortly after the acquisition of Smith & Wesson in May 2001,” said Corey Lambrecht. “Tom’s experience and skill set in manufacturing operations, in addition to his sales and marketing expertise, makes him ideally suited to lead Champion Safe as we focus on growing revenues and increasing market share while maintaining margins to drive profitability.”

“Proud to say that I have acquired a great appreciation and understanding of manufacturing operations, both large and small. An efficient process is needed to truly maximize profitability and to continue to consistently deliver products that are of the highest quality to our dealer network and our end consumers,” said Tom Mihalek. “Do something you love and you will never work a day in your life’ is one of my favorite quotes. I am bullish about the opportunity to accelerate the introduction of the American Rebel branded safes and to continue to work with the senior team at Champion. I look forward to meeting several of our consumers and dealers in person at the upcoming 2024 NRA Show in Dallas, Texas.”
