Vista, CA – Haro Bikes has hired Doss Barnes as its new Supply Chain Director. Barnes comes to Haro with a decorated resume, including such brands as Fox Shox, Santa Cruz, and Pon Bike Group, where he held the title of Global Category Manager for all of their performance brands. A 16-year veteran in the bicycle business, Barnes will work closely with Vince Venolia, Haro's Purchasing Manager and will report directly to Haro's new CEO, Jayu Yang.

"I was excited about the opportunity to come on board for multiple reasons," said Barnes. "Haro is a well-known brand with a lot of potential. When I met the team before I started, I instantly felt comfortable. I'm a big fan of BMX, mountain biking, and gravel riding so this is a perfect fit."

When asked about his biggest challenges ahead, Barnes was quick to cite the need for "taking control of the supply chain and developing a flexible system which will allow us to better serve our dealers and distributors."

Haro Bikes was founded in 1978 by Bob Haro, who began the company making numberplates in his mother's kitchen. Haro Designs was formed shortly after in 1980 and was based out of Torrance, CA. Credited with the creation of BMX "freestyle", Haro was the first to produce a freestyle-specific frame in 1982. Today the company employees 25 people and is based in Vista, CA.
