“Steve brings an incredible wealth of bicycle industry experience,” said David Hon, president and chief executive officer of Dahon. “He knows the product, the territories, and a lot of the dealers. He’ll spearhead our effort to become an even better supplier to the IBD. We’re excited to have him on board.”
“I’m very excited to join such a dynamic and fast growing company,” Boyd said. “Our success depends on dealers doing well, so we’ll be focusing on improving our service and building up our relationships with them. Despite the poor economy the bicycle sector is still doing well so I foresee great opportunities for all of us.”
