Chris Seipio is the new Western Canada sales representative for R.L. Winston Rod Company and Bauer Fly Reels. Seipio, who is with the CPO Agency, has extensive knowledge of retail management and buying and was national sales manager for a major European clothing line with more than 250 accounts.
At CPO he has experience in sales, marketing, promotions, merchandising, buying and management.
A native of Toronto, he has been fly fishing for 32 years, is a winner of the Canadian Championship for Fly Casting and has also operated a guide company.
“In a world of mass market products, highly specialised companies have become more and more unique,” said Seipio. “Winston and Bauer are the kind of businesses that fill this void in my agency.“
Winston and Bauer Sales Manager, Jim Murphy, said Western Canada holds a special place with his companies. “Our products have always been designed with a great respect for this serious fishery and its anglers. Chris will bring us even closer to our roots and the future of the angling community in his home territory.”
