Miguel Galan-Davis has been recruited as the newest member of BIKE, the 24-hour cycling channel, and will take the role of commercial manager.
Galan-Davis joins the team shortly after Kevin Burton, sales manager came on board. With over 13 years of business to business, and business to consumer account management as well as business development, Galan-Davis is moving on from his 8 years of working in publishing.
Galan-Davis said: "I’m extremely excited to be involved with BIKE at this early stage, and certain with the channels wide range of race coverage and diverse programming, BIKE will be a huge success. As the UK’s first and only dedicated cycling channel, BIKE offers our viewers a new, exciting and focused way to consume their passion of all that is cycling, and I’m ready to get started.”
Having managed the cycling and sports portfolios of businesses such as Immediate Media Co, Factory Media and Future Plc, Miguel has an extensive and priceless knowledge of the industry.
Filippo Mori Ubaldini, BIKE’s Founder and CEO said: “Miguel is a terrific addition to the business and I’m really pleased to have him as part of the BIKE team. His vast experience in business development and industry knowledge will greatly help BIKE as we expand our presence in the growing UK cycling market.”
