SEYMOUR, Conn. (BRAIN) — Thule has hired Dan Connors as a lead engineer, the company announced Friday. Connors joins Thule from Cannondale where he spent 20 years designing bicycle frames, cranks and other components.
"Dan's knowledge of materials and bicycle design will be a great asset to Thule. He intimately understands the needs of cyclists and I look forward to the new ideas he will bring to the Thule product line," said Chris Peck, Thule's VP of product development. Before joining Thule last year, Peck was global VP of R&D for Dorel's Cycling Sports Group, of which Cannondale is a part.
"Thule is a well-respected brand with amazing products. I have been a Thule user for years and I am excited to help shape the future of their products. In recent years, the team at Thule has launched many award-winning products and I am excited to be part of that team," Connors said.
Connors will be based at Thule's North American headquarters and factory in Seymour, Conn.
