VANCOUVER, British Columbia (BRAIN) — Rocky Mountain Bicycles has added new sales reps in the U.S, in addtion to new inside sales and demo staff members.
In New England, industry veteran Mark Jenks is returning to Rocky Mountain after several years away in the motorsports industry. Jenks was with Rocky Mountain in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.
Michael Murphy and Shawn Withers of Podium Sales Group are now representing Rocky Mountain in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Adam Williams is the brand's new Colorado sales rep after spending last year as Rocky Mountain’s outside technical rep and demo tour manager. Before that he worked extensively in bicycle retail from the age of 16 in Illinois, then onto Ajax Bike and Sport in Carbondale, Colorado, and then helped start Golden Bike Shop in Golden, Colorado.
Rocky Mountain’s general manager Guillaume Senechal said the new hires are a result of increased consumer demand.
“It’s fantastic to see consumer demand so high after some flat years and we feel it’s the result of a huge amount of R&D resources pooled into our bike development," Senechal said. "Our 2013 lineup, especially the Element 29 RSL and our 27.5” wheel Altitude lineup has generated more excitement and interest than we could have hoped. It was obvious we had to add to our U.S.. sales force to properly handle the demand.”
