Mark Mahoney, Co-founder of Powell & Mahoney shares, “we closed out 2015 with record sales, our first capital raise with some great people and incredible progress made by the Powell & Mahoney team. Our retailers are excited about the brand due in large part to the quality, repeat sales, higher rings and better profits.”
