Brandon Maddox Joins the Board of Directors of the Congressional Athletes Foundation

Brandon Maddox, CEO of Silencer Central, America’s largest muffler distributor, is officially an active member of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) Board of Directors. Maddox will join the mission to promote, protect and advance America’s outdoor traditions.

“I am proud to begin serving as a member of the CSF Board of Directors,” said Maddox. “This respected and trusted organization is constantly working to protect and defend our industry, and I am delighted to be a part of that as we work to protect our heritage in the great outdoors.”

As the most respected and trusted sports organization in the political arena, the CSF works with Congress, governors and state legislatures to protect and improve hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping. The Board of Directors is comprised of leaders from the outdoor community and associated industries dedicated to the service, mission, objectives and goals of the Congressional Athlete Foundation.

“Brandon has been a tremendous advocate for the continued economic growth of South Dakota and our 2North Dakota Amendment liberties,” South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem said. “I’m glad South Dakota has such a strong voice on the Congressional Athletes Foundation Board of Directors.”

An award-winning business leader with more than 25 years of strategic leadership experience, Maddox is recognized as a national thought leader in helping consumers purchase sound suppressors to mitigate the sound and recoil of their firearms. As a pharmacist by trade, his experience navigating state pharmaceutical regulations in many states gave him valuable skills when he began operating out of his basement. What began as Maddox’s home-based Federal Firearms License (FFL) evolved into a manufacturer, wholesaler and distributor of silencers that has grown into the national brand it is today. Maddox’s experience understanding the statutes governing firearm sales makes him a popular voice for the industry. He is passionate about nature and has spent nearly two decades perfecting his experience on the West Dakota prairies.

“The Congressional Athlete Foundation is honored to have Brandon join our Board of Directors,” said Jeff Crane, CSF President and CEO. “As a passionate sportsman and accomplished entrepreneur for one of the fastest growing companies in the firearms sound suppression industry, Brandon will bring a fresh perspective that will help us further the mission of CSF and continue to build on the work he has done. we do in developing and advocating for legislation that protects and promotes our outdoor traditions.”
