In Orillia Ontario, in 1971 Paul Leskew founded Challenger Athletic Products Inc. with two partners. Challenger, in a very short period of time, became Canada’s premier scoreboard manufacturer in Orillia, ON. One of Challenger’s milestones was building and installing the Toronto Blue Jays first electronic scoreboard for their inaugural season in 1977. Over the years, Challenger’s markets spread world- wide with installations in Australia, Scotland, Ireland, US, and Europe.
In the early 80’s, Paul Leskew bought his partners out and became the sole owner of Challenger Athletic Products. In 1985, Challenger merged with Nevco Scoreboard in Greenville, Illinois.
Nevco set up its Canadian operation in Orillia, Ontario. Paul Leskew became known as The Scoreboard Man transitioning from manufacturing and sales to strictly sales.
The Scoreboard Man focused on developing Nevco’s markets in Ontario, Newfoundland, the Yukon and the Territories.
