Cycle Republic has appointed Jim Berkeley to the role as Head of Commercial.
Jim moves across from his previous role as Head of Trading for Cycles and Head of Development at Halfords where he held these positions since joining the group two years ago.
Prior to Halfords he spent three years at Chain Reaction Cycles where he was Head of Trading and Retail. He has a proven track record in the cycle industry and a deep understanding of this rapidly-growing sector.
As Cycle Republic moves into its second year of trading, Jim will take full responsibility for all commercial, buying and trading activity across the business, both in-store and online.
The cycle retail chain now has 10 shops operating across the UK.
Cycle Republic Managing Director, Peter Kimberley, said, “I am delighted to have Jim on board, who brings a wealth of industry experience as both a passionate cyclist and experienced trader. He joins the business at a hugely exciting time and will be instrumental in driving further growth and continue to develop and deliver our compelling offering to our customers”
