Goal Pad Designer Pete Smith Interview Podcast
Recently I had the great pleasure of speaking with Pete Smith about his career as a goal pad designer, and about his business today. One of the best known designers in the business, Pete is responsible for much of the innovation in today’s equipment made by all major brands.
In our discussion he talks about:
- His experience in the industry – which began with his first professional job while still in high school
- His design process from work developing the Vaughn Velocity Pad, to new innovations today
- Why he doesn’t work with NHL goalies today
- The importance of the internet and customer service to his business
- NHL regulations on equipment being a disadvantage to smaller goalies
- and much, much more.
Pete is a great guy with a solid reputation in the business. If you’re looking to upgrade your gear I would encourage you to drop by his site and have a look, or better yet give Pete a call, I know he’d be happy to help. And when you do, tell him you heard the interview here!
