MONROVIA, CA (BRAIN) — If you’ve called American Cycle Systems (ACS BMX) in the last 40 years, chances are you’ve spoken with Sheri Johnson, who is retiring this week after a long career with the brand.
The company hired Johnson in 1973, two years after ACS started manufacturing bike hubs in El Monte, California. Johnson was in charge of orders, bookkeeping and payroll, and was the voice of ACS on the phone.
"She was friendly, thorough and diligent, and was appreciated by everyone who she helped," ACS said in an announcement this week.
The company said Johnson plans to spend time caring for her extended family, including the children of her daughter who recently succumbed to cancer.
