We are excited to announce the addition of Mark Fitzsimmons as the new Business Development Director for TRP USA! 

Mark was sought out for his achievements in both marketing and product development, along with his outstanding experience in the international cycling industry. Working with high performance products and top-level athletes as the Global Racing Manager at Fox Racing Shox since 2003, Mark brings a wide range of valuable experience, creativity, and personal enthusiasm to the TRP crew. 

In his position as Business Development Director, he will be visible at all levels of the brand to drive      product momentum in coordination with TRP Global teams in Taiwan and Europe, further cultivating our diverse componentry through TRP E-Bike Solutions.  

The TRP brand is focused on bringing devoted enthusiasts into our ranks to market and develop our products with a true pedigree. Mark brings this pedigree as a 25-year industry veteran and a competitive professional. As a longtime friend, I couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the TRP family.” – Lance Larrabee, Managing Director

“I am excited for this opportunity to be a part of the Tektro TRP Team. After spending many years working in suspension hydraulics, it felt like a natural transition to hydraulic brakes and drivetrain. It gives me the opportunity to link all the dynamics of a bicycle together. Following a virtual visit to the factory and testing the brakes and drivetrain, I knew they had a good thing going. It made my decision easy. I look forward to aiding in the contribution to their success.” – Mark Fitzsimmons, Business Development Director

As Tektro/TRP grows, we have also added two new Regional Sales Associates in Colin Esquibel and Jerry Vanderpool.

Colin Esquibel continues with TRP in his Field Test Engineer position, along with stepping into a sales role by overseeing the Southwest region. He brings with him extensive technical knowledge after working in the field with our Elite UCI DH teams and being a key player in the DH-R EVO brakes and DH7 Drivetrain development. 

Adding yet another layer of enthusiast to the TRP brand, we are happy to welcome Jerry Vanderpool onto the team as the Northwest/Mountain West Regional Sales Associate. Jerry comes to us with years of valuable experience in technical service and in dealer directed sales, providing the TRP brand a unique position in better serving the needs of our customers. With a remarkable DH career of his own, Jerry is a very welcomed addition, further influencing the pedigree of TRP Cycling Components.
