SBS Restructures Product Development Team

Published October 4, 2011

SEATTLE, WA (BRAIN)—Seattle Bike Supply has promoted three members of its purchasing and product development team and reorganized them into two departments.

The changes will move John Quattrocchi to department manager of Logistics and R&D. Mike Sanderson will manage the purchasing and planning department and Kurt Hall will manage the design and engineering department.

Quattrocchi has been with Seattle Bike Supply since 1986, and has held titles in most areas of the company, beginning in the warehouse and including sales, purchasing, product development, and product manager of the Redline BMX line.

Sanderson has been in the bicycle business since 1972 with stints at Gregg’s Greenlake in Seattle and Bike Shop Anchorage in Alaska. He joined the SBS purchasing department in 2002. Most recently Sanderson has been the product manager for Redline and Torker bicycles.

Hall’s work experiences as a designer and engineer have taken him from Roadmaster to Klein, Trek and BBR Motorsports before joining SBS in 2009. Hall has been the key player in bringing Redline into the carbon fiber age.

This new structure is designed to maximize each individual’s talents and to keep SBS growing and developing great new products.

“With the full support of the Accell Group, we are excited to take SBS to the next level," Quattrocchi said. "We believe this new structure is designed to help us continue to expand as a leading distributor and further develop our proprietary brands Redline, Torker, Pryme and XLC.”
