Westin has strengthened its German pro-staff team with the appointment of one of the region’s top anglers, Danni Schäfer.
German-born Schäfer is well known on the competition circuit and when she is not taking part in tournaments she can often be seen fishing the big Dutch waters for perch, pike and zander. “I have known Danni for a long time and am proud to welcome her on board,” said Westin Country Manager Enrico Di Ventura.
“She is respected and a very skilled angler who is well liked within the Westin team, which makes it even easier for us to welcome her to the family.”
“I am very happy to be part of the Westin pro-staff team in Germany. It is a very exciting challenge which I am looking forward to,” said Schäfer.
