Publish date:

An American but formerly President of CSG International, based in Switzerland, McGuane is now charged with driving the CSG business in North America from its Bethel, Connecticut office.

The company also announced that Bob Baird, President of Dorel’s Recreation and Leisure Sector will become the acting President of CSG International.

“Jeff McGuane is a superb leader with an impressive record of accomplishments in the cycling industry, and he has strong experience across multiple markets,” said Baird.

“Since 2004, Jeff has led Cannondale Europe to tremendous success, and we’re looking forward to similar results in North America under his leadership.


Cannondale Sports Group is comprised of four cycling brands sold through IBDs: Cannondale, Schwinn, GT, and Mongoose.

For the past 14 years McGuane has held positions with Cannondale and CSG in the United States, Japan and Europe.

He was appointed President of Cannondale Europe in 2004 and named President of CSG International in August 2008.

“One of the great things about being part of Dorel is that we have some of the best people, retailers and cycling brands in the world,” said McGuane.

“The best days for CSG North America are still before us, especially when I consider such converging factors in North America as the green movement, mobility initiatives and healthcare concerns. That’s why I’m honored to accept this position as President of CSG North America.”
