Danish fishing tackle manufacturer Westin has strengthened its sales team with the appointment of top European predator angler Rene Winklinger as its Sales Representative for Austria.
Reporting to Westin’s German and Austrian Country Manager, Enrico Di Ventura, Winklinger has a long record in the tackle industry. He started his career importing US boats for the local market before moving to Germany to work in the tackle industry. Back in Austria, he is now a distributor of fishing products and among others, sells Westin products.
Thomas Sanotra, Westin COO, said: “Rene’s experience, skills in salesmanship and knowledge of the market – plus his ability as a predator angler – gives us strong belief in the future development of our position in the Austrian market. The country is strong in predator angling and our product mix fits it perfectly.”
Winklinger added: “It is a great honour for me to be part of such a strong team. I am looking forward to an exciting time ahead and it will be a pleasure bringing Westin products to Austria – we sure need them!”
