TRENTON, NJ (BRAIN)—Hutchinson Tires North America has promoted Bill Perreault to director of operations at their Trenton, New Jersey offices. In addition, Levi Olsen has been brought in under Perrault to spearhead the sales and marketing side of Hutchinson's bicycle tire business.
Perreault has spent the last year as operations manager, restructuring the business practices of the New Jersey office, resulting in more efficient transactions between the Hutchinson factories, warehouse and customers, according to a press release.
"I've spent the last year streamlining the delivery of the product to the United States and ultimately to our distributors and dealers," Perreault said. "When the opportunity came for me to take a bigger role and oversee the North American Operations, I was more than ready."
Perrault is now responsible for all North American operations including product traffic, sales and marketing.
Working directly under Perreault is Hutchinson new-hire Levi Olsen. Olsen comes to Hutchinson after spending the last four years working the East Coast Dealer Circuit first for Yakima, and more recently the Saris Cycling Group.
"This is a great opportunity for me to work with a top-tier brand and expand my responsibilities into marketing as well as sales," Olsen said. "I've been running Hutchinson tires on my road, mountain and 'cross bike, and nobody makes better tires. I can't wait to get more people than ever on them."
