Jeff Wagner, General Manager of R.L. Winston Rod Company and Bauer Reels for 14 months, has become a director at Smartwool, where he joins former Far Bank Enterprises CEO, Travis Campbell. Annette McLean, VP of Operations and Design at Winston, is currently the interim head of the Twin Bridges, Montana fly fishing company. She has been with the firm for 32 years and also served as Production Manager for ten years.
Wagner’s tenure at Winston was preceded by eight years at Cabela’s. He was also at the National Parks Service and a buyer at Jax Outdoor Gear. One of the reasons for his latest move is said to be the desire to live closer to his parents.
Smartwool, based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, is a subsidiary of VF Outdoors, the owner of brands including North Face and Timberland. Travis Campbell joined the company as President in February this year.
