Nobles Worldwide, Inc., the largest supplier, designer, and manufacturer of ammunition feed systems and associated hardware to the U.S. military and its allies, announced today the addition of Luke Puckett to its growing business development team.

Puckett began his career as a contractor to the U.S. Department of Treasury where he directed micro-finance initiatives in Central & South America, the Caribbean, and Africa.
