Cor Ax has left Shimano Europe following a ‘difference of opinion’ about future strategy of the company.

Shimano Europe has today announced that it is parting company with Managing Director, Cor Ax, with immediate effect.

In a statement revealing the news, Marc van Rooj, President of the Shimano Europe Group, said the break up was ‘due to a difference of opinion about future strategy to implement’.

“Both parties have agreed not to unveil details of this matter,” added van Rooj. “Senior management is now considering the future set up of the management of its European fishing tackle business.”

Cor Ax was appointed Managing Director in January 2014 after serving as International Sales Director for almost a year. His future as a member of the EFTTA Board is unclear at this time.

In January this year Shimano merged Shimano Europe BV, Shimano Europe Fishing Holding BV and bikefitting.com BV into one company, Shimano Europe BV.
