Werner Paddles Announces Danny Mongno as Marketing Manager
Opening week of 2014 at Werner Paddles marked a new beginning as 11-year veteran of the company, Danny Mongno, takes over as the marketing manager. Affective immediately, he will work with a strong management team to continue to showcase the brand as the premiere paddle line for touring, whitewater, SUP and fishing.
Most recently, he held the role of field marketing manager, so the transition will be a hit-the-ground-running scenario, as Mongno has been working with the marketing department on social media, development of Werner TV content, team management and the managing of the leading retail training module in paddle sports, G.U.I.D.E.
Vice President Don McClain felt this was “the natural progression” for Danny. “Since 2003 he has moved upward through the ranks with dedication to the brand and hard work. We are excited to see him lead us into the future.”
President Bruce Furrer shared that sentiment, adding, “His time in the field and relationships he has built over the years made him the choice for the job. We cut him loose to spread our family story. Personally and through the values he has instilled in our reps and our team, we continue to show that we are a legitimate paddling family, which also operates as a powerful company. He is the guy to carry that on.”
Since 1964 Werner Paddles has remained family owned and been designing and hand crafting Ultimate Paddle Performance, in Washington, USA.
