Tri Tool Highlights Dynamic Leadership Education

Tri Tool Highlights Dynamic Leadership Education

Rancho Cordova, CA, Sept 3, 2020 For Immediate Release

Tri Tool Inc. has named Eric Frohardt as Vice President of Training. Eric will be instrumental in developing and streamlining Tri Tool’s comprehensive education of sales and service technicians, as well as providing leadership growth and team building throughout the organization.

Eric had a distinguished career in the United States Navy, serving as a SEAL for nearly 12 years. He is the recipient of numerous medals and commendations for combat deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan and other locations globally. Eric was an operator at various SEAL Teams including Naval Special Warfare Development Group. He also served at a training command as a Navy Instructor and earned his Master Training Specialist certification. He was awarded the Purple Heart for injuries sustained in combat that ultimately led to him being retired as a SEAL Operator Chief (SOC / E7).

After leaving the Navy, Eric was able to leverage his background and experience to develop, manage and administer training programs for both commercial and member organizations, while successfully co-founding a number of private businesses. Eric was the CEO of StrongFirst, a global fitness education company with nearly 4,000 instructors in over 40 countries teaching their system to thousands of students annually in multiple languages. Most recently, he served as the Director of Education and Training for the National Rifle Association (NRA), leading and serving over 110,000 NRA Certified Firearms Trainers responsible for reaching or teaching nearly 1-million students annually nationwide.

Eric stated, “Throughout my career, in both the military and private sector, I have always been involved in training. The emphasis we placed on training and being prepared is the reason for our success in the SEAL Teams: as individual operators, teammates, and leaders. It’s exciting for me to work with a company as innovative as Tri Tool. They are committed to training their people, helping their partners, and being leaders in the industry.”

Tri Tool’s CEO, Chris Belle states, “As you can see, Eric Frohardt possesses a remarkable and practically unsurpassed background of developing, refining, administering, and managing dynamic training programs. We’re extremely excited to integrate his knowledge and development skills into Tri Tool’s leadership team.”
