Schuberth North America, exclusive distributor of Schuberth helmets and Held riding apparel, has expanded its corporate team following exceptional sales and market performance in the last 18 months. Three regional sales managers, an inside sales representative and a digital marketing specialist join Schuberth North America to service its growing dealer network.
“The demand from the market and dealers was exceptional in 2014 and has continued into the first and second quarters of 2015,” said Peter Meade, Schuberth North America national sales director. “Adding team members that exclusively represent Schuberth and Held products will be an advantage to our dealers. We are better able to work one on one to further develop their business and continue the expansion of both brands. I am excited that Held in particular has seen exceptional growth as a new apparel brand and offers dealers an alternative to their current lineup for high-end consumers.”
Here’s a look at the latest hires:
