As a brand, Kokatat has a long and storied history of sponsoring paddling’s most influential and iconic athletes. Now, the brand proudly welcomes paddling instructor and Werner ambassador Danny Mongno to Team Kokatat.
Mongno, has been heavily involved in the world of paddle sports since his introduction to kayaking at the age of 18. Although Mongno’s childhood dream of becoming a classroom teacher didn’t pan out in the traditional sense, Mongno, now 40, travels the world teaching clinics that help athletes improve their paddling skills.
While an accomplished and multi-faceted paddler, it is Mongno’s industry experience that adds another level of expertise and capabilities to an already powerful athlete program. A full time Werner Paddles employee, Mongno’s industry experience lends him a deeper and refreshing understanding of the industry’s inner-workings.
“We’re excited to have Danny on our team and representing us at all the kayaking events he attends throughout the year,” says Jeff Turner, Sales and Design Manager with Kokatat. “He’ll be a great asset to our reps out on the road, but more importantly he’ll be a great ambassador for our company and the sport.”
Kokatat is excited and inspired by Danny’s dedication to the sport, and looks forward to a fruitful and influential partnership.
