Wilson Appoints Dudy As President, Unveils Baseball/Softball Promotion
Wilson Sporting Goods has appointed Joe Dudy, a 25-year veteran of the company, as president. Previously Wilson’s VP–finance, Dudy had been appointed acting leader of the brand in October 2019, upon Michael Dowse’s departure.
Dudy started his career with Wilson in 1995. During his tenure at the company, he has held a variety of domestic and international finance and business strategy roles. Dudy was appointed VP–finance in 2005.
“It is an honor to have the opportunity to lead and serve Wilson,” says Dudy. “I have great respect for our people and brand and I look forward to working closely with the Amer Sports leadership and board, members of my senior leadership group and team members around the world. I am energized to take on this role at a time when our company’s future is full of potential and possibilities and lead the transformation of our business that will allow Wilson to endure for its next 100 years.”
Also this month, the Wilson family of baseball and softball brands is celebrating the return of baseball around the country with one of its biggest giveaways ever. One baseball and one softball winner – as well as one of their friends – will receive the ultimate prize pack, including a Louisville Slugger MLB Prime wood or performance bat of their choice, a Wilson Pro Stock glove, EvoShield Pro-SRZ guards and either a Wilson, Louisville Slugger or EvoShield backpack.
Players need to register by July 27.
“We know this year has been hard for ballplayers across the country,” explains Jake Misener, associate manager–digital content for Wilson Baseball/Softball. “Countless seasons were lost and/or postponed and we look at this giveaway as an opportunity to bring some excitement and hype to the game as baseball and softball start to ramp back up.”
