NEWBURY PARK, Calif. (BRAIN) — Giant Bicycle USA has hired Sean Burkey as its new account executive for Ohio and northern Kentucky. Burkey moves to Giant after several years as a Raleigh sales representative.

"Sean's an industry veteran, as well as a cycling enthusiast," said Dave Maurer, Giant's sales manager for the central region. "He has strong relationships currently with many bicycle businesses in the territory. With his high integrity and superior product knowledge, he brings an authentic perspective which all Giant retailers will appreciate."

Burkey, who makes his home in Gates Mills, Ohio, replaces long-time Giant account executive Larry Lewallen, who recently retired from Giant after 28 years.

"I traveled with Larry in his last couple of weeks on the job, meeting Giant retailers in the region," Burkey said. "They are a terrific group, and I'm humbled to take Larry's place working with them." He continued, "I'm familiar with many of these retailers already and they all reinforce the reasons why I wanted to work for Giant: great leadership, amazing products, and a strong sense of partnership."
