NEW YORK – April 16, 2013 — John Gagliardi, founder of Maverik Lacrosse, today announced that he would be amicably parting with Bauer Performance Sports in June to focus his day-to-day efforts on a new business venture to be announced in July. The two parties will continue to partner together on lacrosse related events including Gagliardi’s award-winning No Limits Lacrosse Camps.
“My acquisition agreement is over and it is time to hand the torch to the new guys,” said Gagliardi. “Sam Freider at Kohlberg has been wonderful to work with and I learned a great deal from him. I have some unbelievable memories, the first shipment of Wonderboys and packing boxes on Super Bowl Sunday as a team. I was lucky to do all of this with some of my best friends. Maverik was my first baby and it is a little sad walking away, but, it is in good hands now.”
