Team Storm Staff Members Celebrating 20 Years

At Storm Products Inc., we believe in our people. Those who become part of Team Storm share our vision and values. They share our beliefs and help us cultivate fans around the country.

“Nothing in this world compares to a person’s loyalty and dedication towards his or her profession,” Dave Symes said. “These individuals have shown everyone the true meaning of dedication and loyalty by confirming their association with our organization for 20 years. We truly appreciate their dedicated service to our organization, and I am personally thankful for their examples as role models in their local communities and on the world stage.”

We’re honored to recognize six of our Team Storm members who have been loyal to our brand for 20 years or more.

Jason Belmonte – Orange, NSW, Australia

“To be a part of the Storm family for 20 years has been one of the most rewarding and fulfilling parts of my journey. I have always felt Storm is my bowling family. Bill and Barb, my mum and dad, and Dave my older brother. Their support of me off the lanes is equally important. Storm has always wanted to make sure I was happy. Always helped balance the work and home scales perfectly. I am grateful to have had this family for 20 years.”

Favorite Storm Memory:

“The first memory was when Timmy Mack first organized a meeting with Bossco aka Mr. Chrisman. He hugged me right away and we talked about my goals and how Storm could help that happen. He told me then ‘you’re going to change the game and I want you bowling with Storm when you do it.’ From that day I have always felt Storm knew what I was capable of and lending me a helping hand every step of the way.

The second was when I broke the PBA Major Championship record. When I struck to win, Bill jumped out of his chair and bear hugged me soon after. He showed me that this win wasn’t just about a win for Storm. It was about me as a human.”

Michael Miller – Albuquerque, NM

“I believe Storm extended my career longer. I could see the reaction and results of other players similar to myself when I wasn’t throwing Storm equipment.  I knew it would just fit.  So, when I was offered the opportunity to sign with Storm… I needed no convincing. I was where I was supposed to be.  And yes, even though my touring career ended, Storm has been pivotal in my transition to owning a center and recommending the product to many in the area.  It’s been a very good product, for a long time now. Knowing where it started and to think of where it is today, it’s amazing.”

Favorite Storm Memory:

“Pete, Norm, Randy, and the crew who made that staff at the time something I was very proud to be a member of.”

Favorite Ball(s)

As for favorite balls, I liked so many, but here are my favorite 3…

  1.  La Niña..that ball was the Nutz!   Those little rubber traction pieces would come to the surface and bite thru the oil.  I LOVED that ball.
  2. Fire Storm, Tour Edition, I still have it.  1997 baby, and it still works.  I took care of it after every block.  Always.
     

Andres Gomez

“It means the world, hard to believe it’s already 20 years.  Being part of the Storm family has helped me achieve so much in the sport that I love.  I definitely wouldn’t being able to do it without Storm’s support.”

Favorite Storm Memory:

“My favorite memory, of so many, it’s the first time I went to Storm’s Head Quarters in Brigham City, in 2011, where I got to know so many great people, and the actual place where the magic happens. Walking through the front doors and admiring all the great bowling balls that Storm has manufactured thru the years. It was incredible.”
