About the CEO
Dave Ince purchased Blackbeard Trading Company LLC in 2020. A veteran of the Air Force from 2001 until 2004, Dave has used what he learned during that time to advance him in his career.
A proven business leader, Dave acquired Services Management Group Inc. and launched Man Beard Co. under it in 2018 building it from the ground up. In late 2019 he launched Jack of All Shaves, a spin off company dedicated to those unable to grow a beard. His purpose for purchasing BBTCo. was to keep the great brand alive and build upon it even further.

About the Founder
Blackbeard Trading Company LLC was founded by Tyler Dahl. He is a Marine Combat Veteran who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom I & II. His tour of duty began in 2003 and ended in 2011 when he separated from his beloved Corps as a Staff Sergeant.
His expressed purpose for Blackbeard Trading Company LLC is to honor all his brothers & sisters in arms that came home under the Stars & Stripes instead of snapping salutes to it.
Today he feels he is successfully accomplishing that goal while juggling a full time career and dad duties for his large family. In 2020 Tyler decided to sell Blackbeard Trading Company LLC to free up time for other passions but his influence remains a valuable part of the orginization.
