The McGee Group, a family-owned manufacturer of prescription eyewear and sunglasses based in Marietta, Georgia, recently achieved a significant milestone in DU’s Corporate Partner Program. As an official licensee and partner of Ducks Unlimited since 2006, The McGee Group has now generated more than $1 million for the organization through sales of DU-branded eyewear.

“We are very proud to be a part of the Ducks Unlimited family of corporate partners,” says Matt McGee, executive vice president of The McGee Group. “When we began the DU Eyewear program in 2006, we knew this partnership would be a cornerstone for our company. Our family’s commitment to conservation aligns well with the DU mission. Over the years we have been fortunate to meet many of the wonderful people from DU that share our passion. It has truly been an honor to make eyewear for DU members, their families, and enthusiasts alike.”

The McGee Group has been in business for more than 42 years, and customer service and product quality have always been the company’s top priorities. “Reaching this milestone is an outstanding accomplishment and speaks to the quality of the products The McGee Group produces on our behalf. The companies in our Corporate Partner Program have a great tenure that illustrates the power of the DU brand as well as our partners’ commitment to wetlands conservation,” says Jim Alexander, managing director of corporate relations for Ducks Unlimited.

“Our goal has always been to do our best and make exceptional products for Ducks Unlimited. It is unbelievably gratifying to watch our hard work turn into something that is truly making a difference,” Matt says. “We thank everyone who has supported the DU Eyewear program and look forward to another 13 years and beyond!”
