Ming Tan leaves Ritchey for role at Capo

Published January 6, 2012

SAN CARLOS, CA (BRAIN)— Ming Tan has left Ritchey Design for a new position as vice president and general manager at Upland Sports Group, the owner of Capo Cycling.

“During the years Ming spent at Ritchey, he made a number of key changes to our sales, operations, marketing and product development structure and processes,” said Sean Coffey, Ritchey's global marketing director.

“His leadership has helped pave the way for Ritchey Design to grow, and we wish him the best in his new role,” said John Frechette, Ritchey's CEO. “He will be missed.”

Ritchey Design’s U.S. office will move forward with Coffey heading up global marketing and Eric Brecheen serving as U.S. director of sales, both under Frechette. Company founder and owner Tom Ritchey serves as director of product development.

“I wish the best to the entire team at Ritchey Design. It’s a top-notch organization and I have a deep respect for everyone from Tom down,” said Ming Tan. “I’m looking forward to my new challenges here at Upland Sports Group. I’m anxious to dig in and help the company continue to grow as much as possible.”

Tan started at Upland Sports Group on Tuesday.
