Anoka, MN — Vista Outdoor Inc. (NYSE: VSTO), the parent company of 41 renowned brands that design, manufacture and market sporting and outdoor lifestyle products to consumers around the globe, announced that Jung Choi will serve as General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for Revelyst following Vista Outdoor’s planned separation of its Outdoor Products segment into a standalone public company. Her appointment is effective Oct. 23. Until the completion of the separation, Choi will serve as Co-General Counsel of Vista Outdoor, with responsibility for the Outdoor Products segment.
Choi brings more than 15 years of diversified legal experience and expertise to Revelyst, including roles at publicly traded companies and in private practice. She most recently served as General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for Boxed, Inc., the New York-based e-commerce grocery platform that sells bulk consumables and licenses its e-commerce software to enterprise retailers. Before Boxed, Choi held senior counsel roles for Stanley Black & Decker, Inc., and Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. and was an associate for the Capital Markets & Corporate Group in the New York and Hong Kong offices of Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP.
“Bringing Jung on board is an important milestone for Revelyst,” said Eric Nyman, CEO of Revelyst. “In addition to her legal proficiency and professionalism, Jung’s most recent experience working with a publicly traded e-commerce platform at Boxed is perfectly aligned with our goal of building a consumer-first, digital culture that helps people achieve their greatest outdoor aspirations. Her appointment will serve us well and guide us as we begin our journey to becoming the greatest house of brands in the outdoor industry.”
Choi is the newest member of the Revelyst management team, joining Nyman, who became CEO in August, and Andy Keegan, whose appointment to CFO was announced last week. Choi, who holds a Bachelor of Arts from Yale University and a Juris Doctorate from Georgetown University, will oversee legal and compliance functions first for Vista Outdoor’s Outdoor Products segment and then for Revelyst post-separation.
“I’m honored to be appointed General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for Revelyst, particularly at this pivotal time as we transform it into a standalone public company,” said Choi. “It’s a unique opportunity to join a company with incredible brand recognition, a differentiated value proposition and a purpose-driven, people-first culture. I was drawn to Revelyst’s mission of bringing people together over a shared love for the outdoors, combined with its demonstrable passion for innovation to drive growth at scale. I look forward to joining Eric and the team on the exciting journey to unlock Revelyst’s bright future.”
