New arrivals reflect Far Bank’s commitment to growth
Far Bank Enterprises, the parent company of the Sage, Redington and RIO Products fly fishing brands, has made two new appointments to its executive management team.
Jonathan Marquardt (above right) becomes Chief Revenue Officer and Ryan Hamilton (above left) is the new Chief Financial Officer. The pair join CEO Kris Klein, who replaced Larry Barrett as CEO five months ago and who is charged with leading accelerated growth plans for the company.
Their roles reflect the commitment to investment and expansion across Far Bank’s portfolio of brands, says the company.
“We have an ambitious set of goals at Far Bank,” said Klein. “We have long admired Jonathan’s work at Yeti in both the US domestic and international markets. And with his past leadership and roles at Gene Juarez, KPMG and Deloitte, Ryan brings a seasoned executive perspective to Far Bank as we look to expand through both inorganic and organic means over the coming years.”
Marquardt, a lifelong angler, has experience with hyper growth firms like Yeti. “Being able to bring the skill set and perspectives I have acquired in my time with fast-paced and strong growth organisations to a community I am passionate about is a dream opportunity for me,” he said.
Hamilton, who joined Far Bank in December 2020, was most recently Interim President and CFO for Gene Juarez Salons. “I cannot imagine a more exciting time to join Far Bank and the fly fishing industry,” he said. “I am confident we are well positioned to accelerate our growth momentum and capture further market opportunities in our expanding industry.”
