(Greensboro, North Carolina) – Legacy Paddlesports has announced that it has hired angling expert Jimbo Meador to its sales, marketing and R&D team. Meador, who has spent his lifetime living, breathing and working with fishing-related product and services, has been featured in nationally distributed angling articles – for both his expertise, experience and endearing deameanor: you’ve got to meet him to truly understand.
â€œThere’s no better spokesperson and no more qualified a professional than Jimbo to engage our brands in the sport angling community,â€ notes Andy Zimmerman, Legacy Paddlesports President and CEO. â€œNobody knows fishing like Jimbo, as evidenced by his popularity with nationally-published writers and photographers.
â€œI’ve fished all my life, and have been fishing from a kayak for ten years,â€ says Meador. â€œI am excited about sharing my experiences with others, and to help Legacy’s fishing-related products build equity for both Heritage Kayaks and new brands.â€ Meador will work across brand lines to be the company’s fishing conscience, expert advisor and advocate for anglers as a growing Paddlesports constituency. He will be building a field Guide Team that works with retailers to encourage kayak angling awareness and education, and contribute articles to both the Heritage website and Legacy enewsletter.
