REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio (BRAIN) — American Kenda Rubber, the North American sales and marketing office for Kenda Tire, has announced the hiring of Al Clark as the global products manager for its bicycle division.

Clark recently retired after 8 years as a product manager for Bontrager and its parent company Trek Bicycles. Prior to his time at Trek/Bontrager Clark was a product manager with Specialized in their tire group and with Shift MX clothing.

"As an industry veteran Al brings a wealth of knowledge to the team here as Kenda continues to improve its product offerings," said Lonnie Wells, the general manager of American Kenda Rubber.

The addition of Clark follows Kenda's official grand opening of the Kenda American Technology Center in Greene, Ohio, and the hiring of fellow Trek/Bontrager alum Jay Drunasky.

"With the combination of Al's and Jay's experience and the resources at the KATC, we are now in a position to help move Kenda to the next level in tire design and production," said Ben Anderson, the brand's director of sales and marketing.
