In 2006, Nick relocated to K&N headquarters in Riverside, California and has spent the last 8 years representing K&N in the powersports industry.
Beginning August 3, 2015, Nick’s responsibilities as the National Powersports Account Manager will transition to John Jump. Nick O’Kane has accepted an opportunity to represent K&N on the automotive side of the business and is very excited for the chance to work with national retailers.
“After a passionate 8 years in the powersports Industry, in which I have met many amazing friends and enjoyed many great experiences, I have decided to explore a new path in my career whilst remaining at K&N. I will see to it that my powersports duties will seamlessly transfer over to the very capable Johnny Jump,” said Nick O’Kane, National Accounts Manager for K&N Engineering, Inc.
With over 20 years working in the powersports industry, John Jump brings a wealth of knowledge to K&N’s Powersports sales department.
