Gary Newkirk

West Coast Sales

Gary Newkirk’s introduction to the bicycle industry was in the 1970’s when his family bought a family shop in Anaheim. While in college at the University of California San Diego and later at UCLA, Gary managed the bicycle co-op at UCSD and worked at Bikeology while finishing his degree at UCLA. Following a brief diversion into the finance world after college, he found his way back to the industry with stints at Two Wheel Transit Authority, West Coast Cycles and Blackburn Designs. Sports photography was always a passion and while at Blackburn he began shooting events for Winning Magazine and its sister publication Triathlete Magazine. A desire to broaden his sports coverage led to a staff photographer position at Allsport Photography (now Getty Images). While at Allsport he began specializing in golf photography leading to a position with Golf World / Golf Digest. After covering more than 500 professional golf tournaments he found himself drawn back at his first love, cycling. Gary joined Bicycle Retailer and Industry News in September 2011 as the Director of Sales and Marketing.

Sales Territory: California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, British Columbia
