John Hoagland, who as Vice President of sales for Simms Fishing Products was instrumental in shaping that country’s strategy to reach into the conventional tackle market, has stepped down.
A statement from Simms C.E.O. K.C Walsh:
“John Hoagland is resigning from Simms and will be transitioning out of the company over the next month. John has expressed a desire to return home to Milwaukee and we accept this decision. As we plan for 2014, it is the right time to make the transition. John will be assisting me during this period and plans to be in the office during the week of July 29. We thank John for his many contributions to Simms, and wish John well.”
