Stolen Goat has hired Jim Hart as business development manager.
Hart is an experienced business development and sales professional with a history in the automotive and lifestyle industries, and is returning to his roots having been a keen mountain biker from the age of 12.
He said: “I’m really looking forward to bringing all the skills and knowledge I have developed in the automotive industry to the cycling business. The team at Stolen Goat have ambitious plans and an outstanding reputation for producing exceptional products so I can’t wait to get started.
“I have even bitten the bullet and purchased a road bike so looking forward to riding some tarmac with the team… although I can’t promise I will be shaving my legs!”
Having recently made the move to stop selling to Wiggle, Stolen Goat has plans to significantly grow its global retail network, for which Hart will be ‘instrumental’.
Tim Bland, managing director of Stolen Goat, said: “Jim’s passion for all things cycling is infectious and his business development experience speaks for itself.
“We’re really pleased he has come on board to help take the brand forward.”
Hart will start at Stolen Goat in mid-July 2019 and can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Earlier this year, Stolen Goat announced the opening of an online outlet store.
