July 15, 2011 (Bainbridge Island, WA) – Far Bank Enterprises, leader in the fly- fishing industry, continues to expand its talent base with the hiring of Paul Clark as the new director of global sales.
To continue to add depth to its management team, Paul brings with him years of experience in sales. Paul recently held senior positions with brands such as TaylorMade, Adidas Golf and Fila North America. While in the golf industry, Paul worked closely with specialty retailers and understands they are an essential part of each of Far Bank brands’ success. Clark is responsible for Far Bank’s global sales force as well as its customer service department.
“I am a passionate fly fisherman, and taking this position with such a well respected company couldn’t be more thrilling,” comments Clark. “I believe my experience of building strong brands around strategic distribution lends itself to all three Far Bank brands.”
“Paul’s background brings a wealth of sales and sales management skills to this organization as well as invaluable experience building global sales capabilities,” notes Travis Campbell, Far Bank President and CEO. “Knowing Paul is so well-qualified helps make the transition period smooth, and the fact that Marc Bale is staying on for an undetermined period of time to help with international sales creates a seamless changeover for us and our customers.”
