A longtime Harley-Davidson executive has been named the new president and CEO of Wisconsin-based S&S Cycle, replacing departed former president Paul Langley.
Paul Skarie has been named president and CEO of S&S Cycle. He brings 15 years of experience at Harley-Davidson Motor Company. Most recently, Skarie was in Business Planning for North America. Prior to that, he was managing director of Australia and New Zealand. He also served the Motor Co. in sales, dealer development and parts and technical service.
“I’ve long been a fan of S&S, admiring their ability to continually innovate in both the performance and racing markets and I am both honored and excited to help lead this premier brand into the future,” Skarie said.
“After an exhaustive and thorough search for a candidate that we felt could help write the next chapter of the S&S story, both the shareholders and board of directors agreed, Paul had the right stuff,” said Mark Platt, S&S Cycle board chairman. “His involvement in powersports, combined with a broad spectrum of experience, has forged a seasoned leader with the vision and demonstrated ability to drive S&S towards a prosperous future.”
Skarie will take the reins of the six-decade old brand on June 7, operating out of the S&S corporate headquarters in Viola, Wisconsin.
