Flare recruits new operations director

Flare Clothing Company has announced that Ben Skinner-Watts has joined the business as operations director.

Skinner-Watts, who rides for Transition Bikes, is well known on the MTB circuit and has been working with Flare in an informal capacity since the brand launched in 2013. In his new role, he will provide administrative support, event management and co-ordinate activity across the company’s sponsored athletes in Team Flare.

“Ben has been involved with Flare since day one so it makes sense for him to join the company on a permanent basis. He knows the business and our customers inside out and shares my passion for the brand,” explains creative director Hannah Myers.

“Flare is such an important part of our lives; I’m really excited to be able to work with Hannah on a day to day basis. I love getting out to events and meeting our customers so this is a great opportunity for me,” commented Skinner-Watts.

The current Flare collection is available online at www.flareclothingco.com
