BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (BRAIN) — Swiftwick has hired Jamie Pillsbury as national bike sales manager.

Pillsbury brings more than 15 years of sales and marketing experience in the cycling and outdoor industries. He previously worked as an independent sales representative and territory manager for The North Face on the Redpoint Sales Team.

Pillsbury also has experience managing consumer-facing marketing initiatives and brand development for custom bike manufacturers from his time at Lynskey Performance Designs. As a research and development rider for Lynskey and the company's OEM partners, Pillsbury gained knowledge of bike fabrication and product design.

"We are excited to welcome Jamie to the Swiftwick team," said David Fitzgerald, vice president of sales. "As Swiftwick continues to grow, we are confident that Jamie's vast knowledge of the cycling industry combined with his sales experience will be an invaluable asset to the company."

Pillsbury will serve as the expert for the cycling industry and support the implementation of brand strategy to contribute to in-store excellence. He will also oversee the coordination between the sales and marketing team and the company's independent sales representatives to ensure Swiftwick's bike dealers achieve success, the company said.

"I have been connected to Swiftwick since its inception, as both an athlete and wear tester, so it felt like a homecoming when I decided to join the brand in the sales department," Pillsbury said. "Swiftwick is in a great position for scalable growth, and I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to apply my skill set to a brand that means so much to me personally."
