Advanced Sports Hires John Solinsky

Published March 30, 2010

PHILADELPHIA, PA (BRAIN)—Advanced Sports has hired John Solinsky for the position of parts and accessories product manager.

In his new role, Solinsky will manage the production of P&A for ASI’s four bike brands: Fuji, Kestrel, SE and Breezer—as well as the entire product line for recently acquired Oval Concepts' line of components.

"We are pleased to be able to add John to our ever-expanding product team," said Mike Gann, director of product development at ASI. "With his experience in the P&A sector, he will undoubtedly help produce the best products for our brands. I look forward to working with him."

Solinsky comes to ASI as an industry veteran having worked with brands including Trek, Specialized, SRAM, American Classic and Ritchey/Syncros; he has also worked for many years at the retail level with his family's four stores in Spokane, Washington.

“Joining ASI right now is a very exciting opportunity," Solinsky said. "With double digit growth over the last few years in bicycle sales, the timing is right. The recent purchase of Oval gives us a platform to deliver to our worldwide distributors and retailers a solid and advanced component line.”
