Hot Wheels owners, Neil and Russell Merry, recently travelled to Palm Springs California to attend both the GT and Mongoose 2009 International sales meetings, only to return home carrying two awards for 'continued excellence.'
Jeff Weiss from Mongoose said: “Hot Wheels is now our largest international distributor and their growth again this year has again been brilliant. As our second longest servicing distributor we felt that a continued excellence award summed up their efforts which are continually excellent.”
The meeting was hosted by Jeff Frehner, president of the newly formed Cannondale Sports Group, along with Pete Garski (Director of Intl Sales GT) and Jeff Weiss, director intl sales at Mongoose).
Russell Merry commented: “We are a growing company and both the GT and Mongoose brands have provided some excellent bikes in the 2008 model year. We have, like everyone else in the complete bike market, experienced price increases and supply difficulties caused by long lead times but have tried to keep our dealers informed and we feel we have gained ground on competitors this year."
