BOSTON (BRAIN) — Vittoria Industries North America has hired Derek Griggs as regional sales representative for New England.

Based in Seabrook, N.H., Griggs will be responsible for identifying new revenue opportunities, managing existing retail partnerships, and maintaining strong customer relationships for the tire and wheel company and its trade brands, 3T Cycling and Selle Italia.

Griggs grew up assembling bikes as a summer job during his college years and later opened his own bike and ski shop in 1992, Recycled Sports of N.H. in Seabrook.

Along with the Vittoria Group, Griggs currently represent KHS, Pivot Cycles, Ortlieb Waterproof Bags, Profile Design / Bellwether, Kali Protectives, Feedback Sports, Spot Brand Bicycles, 100% goggles and gloves, and Logica Sports (Diadora and Biemme Custom).

"I've been involved in cycling since I was a kid and I know what it's like to be a retailer so I bring that unique perspective to this position," said Griggs. 'I'm honored to join Vittoria at this pivotal moment in the brand's history and look to build the brand and support Vittoria dealers along the east coast. The bicycle culture of New England is very exciting right now and being a more integral part of its community is sure to be rewarding."

"Derek is the perfect fit for our crew," said Rick Dyer, Vittoria National Sales Manager. "His background in cycling and the relationships he's built within the industry are a great platform for us to build from. We are confident in his abilities to excel in this new role at Vittoria."
