Suggs brings an 18-year competitive rifle shooting career highlighted by multiple National Championships, World Championship medals, and participation in numerous NRA, CMP and USA Shooting programs.

Suggs has served on the USA Shooting Board of Directors since May 2019. During that time, he stepped in as a strategic leader and helped guide the organization through recent challenges, including the coronavirus pandemic. Suggs has experience across sales, marketing, leadership, and operational functions from the Army, General Electric, Ariba and Oracle. For the past 10 years, Suggs served as executive vice president for Mediafly Inc., where he led the sales and customer success functions.

While earning a degree in Engineering from the University of South Florida, Suggs was an All-American rifle team shooter. He also won the individual silver and team gold at the 1987 World Air Gun Championships in Budapest, Hungary. Following graduation, he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Army. His involvement with the shooting sports continued while he served as an instructor and shooter for the International Rifle Section of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU) at Ft. Benning, GA. Suggs competed in national and international shooting competitions representing the U.S. as a member of the AMU and U.S. National Team.
