Vertx® Signs Professional Firearms Instructor, Expert Competitive Shooter and Veteran of Operation Desert Storm, Gary Quesenberry

Cincinnati, OH 16-JULY-2014- Vertx® Apparel is pleased and honored to announce professional firearms instructor, expert competitive shooter and Operation Desert Storm veteran, Gary Quesenberry, to the Vertx Pro Staff team.

“Having Gary join our Pro Staff is truly an honor for Vertx®. His training knowledge and excitement is refreshing and we were equally as excited to welcome Gary to the Vertx® family,” Ginger Rohlfs, Director of Marketing commented. “We’ve worked with Gary for a while and knew he would be an integral piece of our Pro Staff puzzle as we build a team of experts in their respective fields.”

With over 20+ years of Law Enforcement and Military experience under his belt, Quesenberry has made a name for himself as a respected top firearms instructor and competitor in the shooting industry. While having served in the US Army during Operation Desert Storm and heading as the lead firearms instructor for an elite counter terrorism organization within the Department of Homeland Security, Quesenberry has went on to train and lead both domestic and international instructional firearms tactics to Law Enforcement agencies.

In 2011, Quesenberry chose to participate in seasons 3 of History Channel’s hit reality show, Top Shot. During his time spent on Season3, Quesenberry performed exponentially well, finishing 3rd overall out of 18 top competitors. Most recently in 2013, Quesenberry was picked to compete on Top Shot: Season 5, this time competing with reoccurring All Stars of the show. Quesenberry made it all the way to the elimination round of the season finale.

"I'm incredibly excited to be a member of the Vertx® team,” said Quesenberry. “As a competitive shooter and professional firearms instructor, I look for any possible advantage on the range. Vertx gear is designed with that innovative, competitive spirit in mind. There's simply nothing better out there."

Chosen in 2012 as one of Cleveland’s Most Interesting People for his spectacular shooting skills and for his current role as firearms instructor for the Department of Homeland Security, Quesenberry is also President and CEO of Q-Series LLC and Director of Training for GrayStone Defense Group.

About Vertx

Performance is not by accident. Born out of necessity, Vertx was established after a top federal agency approached a group of award-winning designers with one simple request – to develop a line of apparel bearing full tactical features and a low-profile appearance for covert application. After intensive pattern revisions, numerous fabric samples and countless hours of wear-testing in the field, Vertx hit the shelves in 2009 and never looked back.
