02 Jan Braxton Newman Retires – The End of an Era!
Krieghoff International Employee #3 has been #1 in the hearts of hundreds, if not thousands of our customers over the past 30+ years. Known to everyone for his outstanding Customer Service and Southern charm, Braxton Newman started the next chapter in his life – retirement – on January 1, 2020.
A mentor to all of us who work at KI, Braxton instilled in every one of us the core values of always going above and beyond for our customers and the importance of being a team. One of his greatest joys, and triumphs, was taking young people under his wing and teaching them the business and interpersonal skills that continued to serve them well throughout their professional lives.
A wealth of knowledge on everything Krieghoff, Braxton wore many hats during his 36 years at KI. From basic gunsmithing to packaging up anything no matter the shape or size, to answering almost any Krieghoff related question, Braxton set the bar high. We could always count on him to jump in and help no matter the task. No matter the obstacle, he always knew what to do.
We will sorely miss his energy and North Carolina banter, but nothing makes us happier than knowing Braxton will be enjoying his retirement doing the things he loves.
We love him and wish him well!
