BETHEL, CT (BRAIN)—Cycling Sports Group has made several organizational changes, including the hire of Tim Inall as general manager of the company’s GT brand. Former brand GM Mark Peterman has shifted to the role of vice president of strategic sourcing, based in Taichung, Taiwan.
Inall joins GT with experience as a marketing and sales executive in retail and B2B channel expansion. Most recently, Inall was director of channel marketing for North America at Esselte Corp. Originally from Australia, Inall has worked globally and is a cycling enthusiast and three-time Ironman triathlon finisher.
“As an avid cyclist, I’m very passionate about getting more people into riding,” said Inall. “I’m thrilled to be part of GT, a real bike family that makes bikes for all types of riders. Over the past few years, GT has started to gather some real momentum with new products and incredible sponsorships. Great things will continue to come from GT.”
In his new role, Peterman will focus on building up on-the-ground sourcing activities in Asia and developing tighter supplier partnerships.
