LEXINGTON, SC (BRAIN)—The Hawley Company has expanded its Account Management Team with the hiring of Chris Fallon for the New England region, Bob Aceto for the Pennsylvania and New Jersey region and Herb Hart for New York.

Fallon brings more than 30 years of bicycle industry experience to Hawley. Most recently, he was a partner of the Earth, Wind and Rider clothing company. Prior to that Fallon was a key member of the Kryptonite team.

Aceto has worked in the bicycle industry for 20 years. Aceto had previously worked 15 years as a territory manager for Giant Bicycles where he earned the Eastern Sales Rep of the Year award multiple times.

Hart comes to Hawley with a family history in the bicycle industry that goes all the way back to 1939. For the last 16 years Hart has been the New York territory manager for Raleigh. While at Raleigh, Hart has won both Salesman of the Year and Eastern Region Manager of the Year multiple times.

“We could not be more pleased to have these three professionals joining our team," said owner Steve Hawley. “Each of them brings a wealth of industry experience and proven success that is truly exceptional. The team at Hawley is very excited about working more closely with dealers in the Northeast”.

To help manage the growing number of Hawley account managers, Ian Cross has been promoted to the position of director of account management. For the past 11 years Cross has served as the account manager in Georgia and has done an outstanding job of growing Hawley’s market share in the Southeast. In his new role, Cross will focus on working with the account team, dealers and vendors to maximize their respective sales and profit potential.

Lastly, Morgan Fluhrer will take over for Cross in the Georgia territory. Fluhrer joined Hawley in 2008 as the account manager for the Texas region. Prior to Hawley, Fluhrer was an account manager with Specialized.
