ENVE has announced that Jeremy Venz will move into the position of managing director after serving as chief operating officer since July, 2017.
In his new role, Venz will oversee all day-to-day business operations. The company has also announced promotions for Jake Pantone, Scott Nielson and Ronnie Points. Sarah Lehman, President of ENVE, will focus on long-term strategy and company culture as the brand continues a steady growth rate.
“ENVE’s goal is to be the most reliable partner to the industry and continue to deliver consumer-driven, innovative products and services, which is only possible with an exceptionally capable and talented leadership team,” said Sarah Lehman. “Jeremy, Jake, Scott and Ronnie’s years of operational experience, commitment to innovation and track record of delivering best-in-class products and customer experiences make us ideally situated to deliver on this promise.”
Before his time as COO, Venz was chief financial officer and a founding member of the company. Prior to joining ENVE, he worked for an international company, as well as one included in the S&P 500 index. He holds a Master’s Degree in Accounting and is an avid cyclist.
ENVE has announced a number of additional personnel changes that further bolster the company’s leadership team:
● Marketing Director Jake Pantone has been named vice president of product and consumer experience, responsible for product planning, strategy, marketing and consumer touch points. Pantone joined the company in 2007 and has been involved with product development, consumer service, marketing and putting ENVE products to the test at some of cycling’s most grueling events.
● Vice President of Research & Development and Engineering Scott Nielson will assume oversight of quality, ensuring the company continues to deliver best-in-class quality products. Since 2012, Nielson has lead the team responsible for designing and developing ENVE’s innovative product line.
● Ronnie Points, director of sales for North America, has been named ENVE U.S. regional commercial director, overseeing industry, dealer and customer sales and service. His deep industry connections and experience make him ideally suited to serve key partners and customers.
In 2017 ENVE celebrated its 10th Anniversary and moved into a state-of-the-art facility that allowed expanded production capabilities, testing, engineering and prototyping, all under one roof. Under Venz’s watch as chief operating officer, ENVE has seen significant improvement in lead times and deliveries. Looking to the future, he will be instrumental in maintaining the company’s status as a market-leader in wheel and component technology, growing key industry relations, expanding brand reach in new markets and continuing to be a major employer in the state of Utah.
