Frehner Leaving Cannondale Sports Group

Published August 27, 2008

MONTREAL, Quebec (BRAIN)—Jeff Frehner, president and chief executive officer of the Cannondale Sports Group, has decided to leave the company for family reasons.

CSG, dedicated to serving the independent bicycle dealers channel, is one of two divisions of Dorel’s Recreational/Leisure segment. Robert P. Baird, Jr., president of the segment, will oversee operations at CSG until a replacement is named.

“We are sorry to see Jeff leave. As the former president of Madison, Wisconsin based Pacific Cycle, Jeff and his family have developed strong roots in that community. He has found it difficult to accommodate an extensive business travel schedule and the need to be physically present in Bethel, Connecticut, headquarters of the Cannondale Sports Group,” Baird said. “There is an excellent, highly energized senior management team in place at CSG. Business at the division has never been better. We have a clear plan, and are committed to being the partner of choice for the independent bike dealer."
