BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WASH (January 15, 2018) – Far Bank Enterprises is pleased to announce the appointment of Marc Bale as Vice President of Sales. Since August 2017, Bale has been acting vice president of sales for SageRedington and RIO Products continuing his prolific tenure with the company.

Bale first started with the company in 1987 as a sales rep and transitioned into sales manager for Sage in 1990.

He briefly held the position as head of sales in 2013 during a transition as well.

“Given Marc’s track record with our company, we are sure he will lead Far Bank sales to great heights in his new role,” said Larry Barrett, Far Bank President and CEO. “With his extensive knowledge of the fly fishing space both nationally and internationally, we look forward to having his expertise working in such an essential role in our organization.”

“My main goal is to keep the Far Bank sales team and sales efforts at the forefront of the fly fishing industry,” said Bale. “I’ve learned in the past three months how greatly the marketplace has changed in the past six years while I have been primarily focused on the international scene, and it is imperative that we stay out in front of all of those changes. Far Bank will remain a leader in this space, and I’m here to ensure our sales teams work hard to continue that trend.”
