TAMPA, FL (BRAIN) — American Classic has named Cody Gilbertson to head its U.S. inside sales office.

“We’re delighted to have Cody rejoin our team,” said Bill Shook, American Classic's founder and president. “Cody brings the bicycle industry, marketing and business experience that we desired. He has the knowledge of our entire brand, product lines and history. Cody is part of our  continuing growth strategy and we are confident that his fresh approach will help us realize our sales goals in the United States.”

American Classic is experiencing ongoing growth despite the overall downturn in the bicycle market, said Ellen Kast, the company's general manager.

“We have greater growth expectations for the American business. We needed a strong leader who can put 100 percent effort toward this market to drive our business and help define the brand into the future,” Kast said.
