CELEBRATION, Fla. — Bruce Mathis has retired from B.A.S.S., effective May 27.
“B.A.S.S. has been one of the greatest companies I’ve ever worked for,” said Mathis at his retirement party in the B.A.S.S. headquarters, May 26. “The people here and their passion for this business made working here a great experience.
“I’ve loved every minute of my time here, and I just can’t say enough good things about the new owners,” Mathis continued. “They have accomplished so much in just these last few months, and B.A.S.S. is just going to keep getting better.”
Mathis joined B.A.S.S. in 2002 when it was headquartered in Montgomery, Ala. During his tenure, he has served as Director of Events, Director of the Bassmaster Women’s Tour and Director of the Bassmaster Weekend Series. Prior to joining B.A.S.S., Mathis worked for USA Boxing on the Olympic Committee. He earned a business administration degree from Regis University.
“Bruce is the kind of boss who leads by example,” said Jon Stewart, B.A.S.S. Federation Nation tournament manager. “He’s never afraid to get his hands dirty. He’s going to continue to work for us on occasional tournaments, and we look forward to seeing him again as part of our team.”
