UK cycling industry sales veteran Scott Hillyard has left his role with 2X2 Worldwide to take a Sales Manager position at Silverfish.
Having spent the past 13 years with 2X2, Hillyard will be a familiar face in the bike business, having spent 31 years already serving the trade in just five roles to date.
He told CI.N: “I’m looking forward to working with some of Silverfish’s recent additions – Muc-Off, Marzocchi and Fox in particular. It’s a complete change in terms of type of product, but it takes me back to the kind of product i used to handle at Lifecycle. It’ll be nice to be working out in the west country. It’s sad to leave 2X2, but it’ll be nice to have a change and I wish them all the best for the future.”
Scott carried out bike focused roles including National Sales Manager at Tandem group, managing a large sales team for a major UK market player whilst looking after several bicycle brands and UK national chains along with over 1,000 independent retailers. On the P&A side of the industry Scott spent four years at Reece and eight years at Lifecycle Ltd overseeing distribution of major P&A brands in the UK.
Silverfish UK General Manager Matthew Osborne commented; “We are really excited to welcome Scott to the Silverfish team. It’s been an exciting period of growth for Silverfish with the arrival of brands such as FOX, Marzocchi and most recently Muc-Off. The business continues to evolve and adding Scott to the team will really help us to continuously develop our support for our customers and to help us all meet the challenges of an evolving market.”
