TronixFishing appointment heralds next stage of growth


A UK tackle supplier and distributor has appointed a new area sales manager for the North of England as its gears up for its next stage of growth.

Karl Murphy, who has more than 20 years of experience within the tackle industry, has joined Sussex-based TronixFishing to spearhead its sales presence in the region.

George Cunningham, Managing Director of the company, said: “The north of the country is an area where we have always lacked a sales presence. From our early days working with agents, we never really felt that we were properly represented there. I am very happy that we have now been able to add an experienced, keen and personable rep in Karl to our growing sales force.

“Having the stability of regular visits and a local point of contact will hopefully give our accounts the confidence to develop the range of our products they stock. I am personally relishing the opportunity of working alongside somebody with Karl’s pedigree and helping to facilitate the next stage of our growth as a company.”

“I’m excited to join a fast growing, agile company in TronixFishing,” said Murphy. “The depth of product available is a real credit to the way George has built his business over the years. I’m looking forward to working with the whole team and to visit the many shops across the North of England to show them some of the fantastic products across all of the brands available.”

TronixFishing Marketing Manager Mike Thrussell Jnr added: “We’re delighted to bring Karl on board to really push our North of England territory. It is a hugely significant area within sea and lure fishing and has tremendous potential for growth. We feel our product range is an ideal match for the coastal and inland shops in this key area and we’re looking forward to showcasing our products to them.

“With Karl on board, we’ll redress our failures of the past in the area with proper representation, allowing accounts in the area to benefit from our exciting range of products and excellent margins.” The North of England territory covers Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and the whole of England up to the Scottish border.
