Ken Thiessen

I am an avid hunter and competitive rifle shooter and like many kids that grew up on the farm I always had a rifle in my hands, so it is no surprise that I have grown to be so involved in the shooting sports. I have been working in the firearms industry since 2012 but was introduced to long range shooting in 2008 and have been hooked ever since.

In this short time I have been very competitive in the Precision Rifle discipline, taking many match wins in the ORA Precision Rifle series, National Service Condition Championships as well as competing in the world renowned Precision Rifle Series. Additional to this, I was also selected to be part of the Canadian F Class rifle team which won the silver medal at the 2017 World F Class Championships. As some of the great people in the shooting community have given so much to me I am also giving back where I can by being involved with the provincial clubs in regards to assisting with intro days, training classes, rifle matches and also working on growing the PRS discipline and matches in Canada.

I understand the need for great equipment whether it is in the field hunting or on the range competing so I am very excited to be part of a great team of people at Vortex Optics and looking forward to the future of shooting sports.
