Apparel and foul-weather gear manufacturer Gill is continuing to strengthen its presence in the fishing segment with the addition of Tim Golden as U.S. national fishing sales manager.

“We are pleased to have Tim on our team,” said Gill commercial director Dominic McCarthy in a statement. “His expertise in the fishing segment brings welcome additional capacity to our North American growth strategy for fishing.”

Golden brings more than 25 years of experience in the fishing industry, having worked as sales vice president with Ardent and Dobyns Rods, and as managing partner at Golden Group.

“I am very excited to join Gill’s incredible team and help spearhead future growth into the fishing industry,” Golden said. “The fact that Gill is recognized as the leader in sailing apparel translates into exceptional quality gear that is second to none for freshwater and saltwater anglers.”

Gill announced a growth plan in January to strengthen its brand position within the fishing apparel market.
