Today we’ll be continuing our Meet the Faces Behind the Brand blog series. This week’s face behind the brand: Tiege Quinn. Tiege is a warehouse specialist at AK Material Handling Systems, and also manages new product inventory. Equally important, he’s an adept angler, regularly competing and placing in fishing tournaments; if anyone here at AK needs advice on how to catch more than a nice sunburn on their next fishing outing, they know where to look. In this interview, Tiege talks about AK’s company culture, what he’s got playing on his iPod, and, of course, his affinity for rod and reel.
