Varese, Italy-based MV Agusta Motor S.p.A. and its subsidiary, MV Agusta USA LLC, have created a new brand strategy to fully develop the brand’s potential in the U.S. MV Agusta USA LLC will be led by Christian Henderson, who will set out to expand the brand’s range of services and competences on offer, enhancing customer experience and strengthening dealer support.
Henderson joined the MV Agusta USA team as managing director Americas on May 3. Henderson acquired extensive knowledge of the dealer business with key motorcycle brands and will lead the global MV Agusta change in the American market.
The MV Agusta Americas team will be concentrating on increasing its presence and brand awareness in the U.S., Canada and Latin America, with the goal of establishing MV Agusta as the premier quality brand in all aspects of the business. In particular, the focus will be on the development of a premium support network, the application of the latest business technology and the launch of exciting new products and services to create a thrilling customer experience.
“Reinforcing our presence in such an important market as the Americas is a key part of our strategic plan,” said Timur Sardarov, CEO MV Agusta Motor S.p.A. “I am glad Christian is leading our U.S. operation, as he brings a wealth of experience and forward-thinking, one-step-ahead leadership to the team, on top of his passion for motorcycles. I am confident Christian will succeed on his new path and I wish him every luck.”
“It is with great pleasure that I join the MV Agusta team,” Henderson said. “I will bring to bear my years of experience in the industry, both from the dealer and the OEM perspectives. In order to further propel this iconic brand to new heights in the Americas, my focus will be on increasing brand awareness and strengthening the overall premium experience for both MV Agusta customers and our dealer network. My goal is for MV Agusta to become the premier brand in each of our dealerships while remaining premium and aspirational.”
