Firearms maker Mossberg welcomes a new President and Chief Operating Officer, announcing Thursday that Douglas Bell has been tapped to fill the position.

With over 20 years acting in corporate leadership roles, Bell will take on the responsibility of Mossberg’s operating units reporting to Chief Executive Officer, Iver Mossberg. Bell has been with the Mossberg team since 2017, serving as Vice President of Operations.

Mossberg said the company is excited to see Bell take on the new role.

“We look forward to having Doug apply his proven management techniques across all aspects of the Mossberg company,” Mossberg said in a press release. “Doug’s outstanding leadership and deep understanding of modern manufacturing processes will be instrumental in aligning Mossberg to meet the present and future requirements of the sporting goods marketplace.”

Prior to joining Mossberg in 2017, Bell worked with other manufacturing companies to include Sumitomo Electric Corp., Danaher Corp. and Assa Abloy, Inc. Bell has a Bachelor’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Northeastern University in addition to a Master of Science in Manufacturing Engineering and Master of Business administration in Marketing from the University of Connecticut.

O.F. Mossberg & Sons, founded in 1919, is best known for their selection of rifles and pump-action shotguns; though the company went back to its roots releasing a pistol platform in January 2019 — the MC1SC.
