BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — The Pro's Closet has hired Travis Erwin as its VP of sales. Erwin was previously the director of global sales for Reynolds Cycling and at TPC he will focus on developing programs for industry partners. Also joining The Pro's Closet are Rob McLennan as CFO and Thomas Stimpson as director of e-commerce and digital marketing.

TPC founder and CEO Nick Martin said, "The Pro's Closet has experienced tremendous growth over the past 12 months and this is a direct result our commitment to building an incredible team. We've had huge success supporting the industry through our Trade-UP program, expanding it to help more retailers unlock the value that is already sitting in their customers' garages.
