ONTARIO, Calif.: Okuma Fishing would like to recognize long time industry veteran Ray Golden for his service and tenure as an Okuma representative. Ray Golden spent the last 23 years as an Okuma representative in the Southwestern United States. During this period Ray helped Okuma get established in the market and helped develop the Okuma brand in the Southwestern States. Ray made the decision to step down from the position as a full-time sales rep in the fall of 2018. Ray is still active in the industry that he loves and is utilizing his experience as a consultant to provide insight to manufactures trying to gain traction.


“I hired Ray Golden and Southwest Marketing in 1996,” recalls Okuma Vice President Sam Brenner. “As a newer brand to the market, Ray’s insight and experience was an enormous help to me personally and to the company. I truly enjoyed working with Ray and will miss his excellent sense of humor. We wish Ray the best of luck in his next chapter and appreciate all he did for Okuma.”
