Effective as of May 2nd, Raleigh Bicycles USA has hired Curt Davis as director of product management.
Joining Raleigh with 18 years industry experience to fall back on, Davis has previously been the director of product development at Ideal Bike Corporation and prior to that global director of product management and marketing at Dahon. He started his career at Cannondale Bicycles, where he worked for 14 years, eventually managing Cannondale’s recreation, urban, and e-bike lines as global director of product management.
“I’m thrilled to be working at Raleigh, a brand with so much cycling history that makes versatile bikes for all types of terrain and adventure,” said Davis. “With a growing number of dedicated places to ride in our cities and increasing opportunities to make bikes that exceed riders’ expectations, it’s an exciting time for cycling in the U.S. I’m so glad to be working with the experienced, energetic team at Raleigh to make consumer-focused bikes that will provide endless miles of riding joy.”
Further to Davis, Raleigh also promotes Rob Kaplan to vice president of sales and Tyler Stetson to director of inside sales and customer service.
Kaplan was previously the vice president of sales and marketing for Accell North America’s e-bike division and director of sales west. He will move into a new role and replace Alan Rowland, who was senior director of sales and is resigning his position to return to Davis, CA to re-launch a sales agency business.
“We wish Alan the very best of luck in his new pursuits and continue to build on our strong team at Raleigh,” said Larry Pizzi, senior vice president of Raleigh Bicycles.
“With Curt leading our product development and Rob and Tyler as integral members of the sales team, it will further our goal to make Raleigh bikes appealing and accessible to a larger group of consumers in North America. We’re looking forward to continuing to create enjoyable bikes that both inspire current cyclists and encourage new riders.”
