Canadian lure manufacturer Freedom Tackle has appointed Tom Chopin to the newly-created position of General Manager.
Chopin, formerly with LIVETARGET will be a key part of the management team leading the firm’s expansion into North American markets.
The appointment comes at a time of real momentum for Freedom Tackle following its recent announcement of a new partnership with Z-Man’s ChatterBait.
“Tom has joined at an opportune time,” said Freedom Tackle owner Michael Tamburro. “Having just made a splash about the Z-Man partnership at the Bassmaster Classic and with the rapid growth we are experiencing, Tom will bring valuable skills and insight that will help us continue to grow market share.”
Chopin said the respect in which owners Michael and Nick Tamburro are held in the industry was a key reason for joining the company. “Freedom’s industry-leading innovation and the direction the company is going in are something I want to be part of,” he added.
Freedom Tackle’s interchangeable hook design provides the time-saving benefit of not having to re-tie hooks. The feature is available on five different jig models, a spinnerbait and a spoon. It will now also be used on the new ChatterBait Freedom.
