Daiwa sales rep and top match angler, Martin Greene, is heading North to the firm's UK head office in Scotland to take up the prestigious role of Commercial Manager for Daiwa Sports UK. Martin added: "I have had a great 10 years on the road and must thank my retailers for the support and input they have given me in this time. I have learned some valuable skills and experiences during this period and hopefully take these into my new role as Commercial Manager. A few people have commented that my match fishing will suffer due to relocation, but it was an opportunity I could not refuse! I still plan to take part in a few bigger events in the future and hopefully this will keep me busy on that front, plus I will be based nearer to Ireland so maybe I might be paying a few visits on the festival scene over there!"I will miss my time in team fishing which is what I really enjoyed.
