Position: Independent Sales Representative or Agency
ALL U.S. & CANADA
Compensation: Commission on Sales
Founded in 2009, Cheeky Fishing develops, manufactures, markets and sells high-performance fly fishing reels and equipment. The company is a category innovator and dedicated to pushing the limits of product design to create fly fishing equipment that specifically aligns with the demands of a growing demographic of progressive anglers. To that end, the company launched a second brand in 2014, Wingo Outdoors, a manufacturer of accessories and pet products geared towards outdoor and fishing enthusiasts. Cheeky Fishing and Wingo Outdoors are co-located in North Adams, MA and run side-by-side under the parent entity North Point Brands.
Cheeky and Wingo currently distribute product through a robust dealer network of fishing and outdoor retailers, as well as through its own websites. The company recently hired a Sales Director to focus on its wholesale and custom merchandise business, which is growing rapidly. Momentum is building and the company requires a resourceful, confident, and success-driven sales rep/agency to continue growing the business. Preference will be given to candidates who can represent both the Cheeky and Wingo brands, but single-brand representation will be considered.
