The American Sportfishing Association (ASA) has elected four new members to fill At-Large and regional seats on its Board of Directors.
Charlie Davis, Category Director-Fishing at Plano Synergy and Bob Hunter, Vice President of Merchandising – Fish, Camp, Marine & Shooting Sports Divisions at Big Rock Sports, have taken up At-Large seats on the Board, while Dan Ferris, owner of MidWest Outdoors has been re-elected to represent the Great Lakes Region and Mike Jackson, President of Wright & McGill, has become a new Board Member and will represent the North Plains and Inter-Mountain Region.
Davis has been involved in retail sales all his life, learning the basics from his father. “Charlie brings his knowledge and expertise – as well as passion for fishing – to the Board,” said the ASA.
Ferris sees himself as being an advocate for resources to be focused on high-priority regional issues across the US. He is also a Charter Member of the 60 in 60 Committee, working to develop industry initiatives to get more people into fishing, and the Communications Committee.
Hunter has been elected to serve his first term for the ASA. “With his extensive background in retail sales and knowing the key role that independent retailers have in our industry, Bob wants to bring his industry expertise to help the association grow retail membership,” said the ASA.
Over his 27-year career, Jackson has touched all aspects of the recreational fishing industry – from manufacturing to distribution and also retail sales. He currently sits on the Trade Show and Marketing Insights Committees.
