NOVATO, CA (BRAIN)—Marin Bikes has promoted Thad Fabish to national sales manager.
With more than 11 years experience in the outdoor industry, Fabish has worked in retail, operations, and inside sales. While he has been with Marin for four years, he most recently has worked as the key accounts manager, overseeing Marin’s inside sales force and lead retail partners.
“I’m excited to be taking over as national sales manager for a company with such a great history and an exciting future,” Fabish said. “Marin has just celebrated its 25th anniversary, and is on the cusp of releasing its 2012 product line. Our unique story, great product, and commitment to our customers are what got us to where we are today. We plan to build on that history to shape the identity of this brand for the future. With recent additions to our product team and reorganization of our sales program we are poised to expand our offering to dealers both in terms of goods and service that matter to the retailer’s bottom line.”
At Marin Fabish’s main focus will be to continue to develop and manage a strong sales team, further expand and strengthen the distribution channel and strengthen brand recognition at the consumer level. Fabish added, “I’m looking forward to attending this year’s Interbike Expo with the ability to raise our retailers‘ experience with the brand with new online dealer tools, dealer program and an expanded product line.”
When not on his bike, Fabish can be found snowboarding the Sierras, backpacking, fishing or traveling with his wife Heidi.
