Focus and Kalkhoff bicycles has announced the appointment of several new members of staff.

Sales veterans Jim Mercier and Justin Manthe join the team as East Coast and West Coast business development managers respectively; the company also announced the promotion of Tony Lederman as operations manager.

At Interbike, Focus launched a completely new line of performance e-MTBs, and during the Pon Bike’s Ennovation dealer event held in Santa Cruz, Kalkhoff launched its 2018 line of urban, trekking, and city e-bikes.

“Focus and Kalkhoff are leading brands in the European e-bike market with huge potential here as retailers and consumers embrace e-bikes,” said Focus and Kalkhoff USA general manager Dan Delehanty.

Delehanty was appointed general manager in July of this year and has been working to develop a strong U.S. based marketing and sales team for both brands.

Mercier was a territory manager with Specialized Bicycles for almost 20 years and most recently served as the eastern regional sales manager at Stromer. Manthe was the director of sales at Electra Bicycle Company for almost 14 years and most recently served as Stromer’s North American sales director.

Lederman joined Focus and Kalkhoff in July as a retail services account manager based in the companies’ current Carlsbad, California headquarters. Previous to joining, Lederman was store manager of ARB Cyclery in Orange County, California for five-plus years.

“Positive feedback from Interbike and our Ennovation event on Focus pedal and e-Performance bikes and Kalkhoff e-bikes was very encouraging. Jim and Justin will make sure we have quality representation in key markets, and Tony, and our expanding team of sales support staff, will make sure our retail partners feel like it is truly a partnership,” concluded Delehanty.
