“Teamwork is the only way to successfully navigate today’s competitive business world,” said Cooper.  “The challenges are hard – competitors around every corner, the changing needs and demands of consumers, and struggles to keep on top of trends in our home market and around the world – but they make us better. At Daymon, we are constantly evolving to help our supplier partners win the game.

We were honored to have Gale with us as he’s a real-world example of how teamwork, trust, strength, focus and agility lead to success. He brought discipline, dignity and maturity to the world of sports, and it’s something we all should take to heart in the way we conduct ourselves in business.”
