NEW YORK CITY (BRAIN) — Phillip Lucas is transitioning to part-time consulting work with Velocomp, where he has worked for the past year. Lucas is returning to Europe to live closer to his family and work via his Netherlands-based consulting firm, Upshift Sports Consulting.

Lucas said he will spend the fall trade shows welcoming and to responding to inquiries from new clients.

UpShift Sports was the project that bought Lucas into his first collaboration with Velocomp in 2014, as well as with Eddy Merckx Cycles, where Lucas was VP of the U.S. subsidiary from 2014 to 2016.

Lucas said, "I launched Upshift Sports on the tail end of the globalization of Rotor Bike Components to help companies achieve their international growth goals. I look forward to Eurobike and Interbike to find new brands that I can help with project, marketing, sales and general management needs."
