Wenonah Canoe and Current Designs announces employee Jim Brown's promotion to President. Amongst other things, Brown will over see manufacturing, purchasing, logistics, inventory control, scheduling, and sourcing.

Former President, Rich Enochs retired on March 28 to mark an end to his five years of service. Enochs is very confident in Brown taking over his position, “He will be a great president. He really cares about the company and the quality services and products it provides. I wish him the best.”

Originally from Milwaukee, WI, Brown moved to Winona, Minn in 1981. Before coming to Wenonah Canoe, Brown held the position of Senior Vice President and General Manager of Winona Knitting Mills. He has been the head of the Wenonah Canoe logistics and planning team for the past three years.

"Jim has really been a key part of our company's success over the past years. I am thrilled to promote him to this position," said company owner Mike Cichanowski.

A devote paddler, Brown and his wife Sue spend most of their free time paddling on the Mississippi River. "This is an outstanding opportunity. Wenonah Canoe and Current Designs Kayaks are two of the premier brands in the paddle sports industry with a rich tradition and a global following. I look forward to representing such a company,” Brown explained.
