Nick Hage has been promoted to general manager of the IBD division of Cycling Sports Group in the US. This will allow Russell Merry of the UK to concentrate on the UK business. Merry will remain in charge of CSG's global parts and accessories division – which includes the innovations-focussed Fabric brand – and he will also provide strategic guidance to the CSG cycle business globally.
Hage, pictured, has been a part of the US CSG commercial organisation for more than six years, and the day-to-day sales leader in the US IBD division for the past year. He will report directly into Peter Woods, president and CEO of Dorel Sports.
