Published September 5, 2017

HELSINKI, Finland (BRAIN) — Amer Sports has announced that Bernard Millaud, the president of its cycling category and a member of Amer Sports executive board, has decided to step down from his current role and is appointed to a special advisory role reporting to Amer Sports' president and CEO Heikki Takala.


The Cycling category, which includes the Mavic and Enve brands, will now be led by general manager Gary Bryant, who will be reporting to Takala. The role will not be an executive board position, in line with Amer's recent simplification of its board structure.

Bryant has been with Amer for 14 years, most recently as vice president of Arc'teryx product & merchandising, based in Vancouver, Canada. He is a British citizen.

"I want to thank Bernard for his contribution over the past 15 years as the leader of our cycling business, and in particular for the past eight years as president of Cycling and member of Amer Sports' executive board," said Takala. "Further, I am very pleased to welcome Gary Bryant into the role of general manager for our cycling business. Gary has a strong track record in the company and he has been instrumental in the success of the Arc'teryx brand. I am happy to promote a strong internal talent into this important leadership role."
