SCOTT USA hired Bart Passanante as the North East Regional Sales Manager for the company. He comes to Scott with eight years of experience in the bicycle industry. Passanante started his career as a sales rep with Bell Sports in New York State, and joined Cannondale in 2001, where he had the PA/NJ sales territory. He was promoted to Regional Sales Manger at Cannondale in 2004 and has held that position since.

“Although I’ve enjoyed my years at Cannondale, the opportunity to help grow an exciting brand like Scott could not be passed up,” Passanante said. “The energy surrounding this brand is contagious!”

“It is fantastic to get the opportunity to bring such a strong leader to our company,” said Scott Montgomery. “I know he is very popular with leading retailers in the East. We look forward to his energy and we are sure he will help us continue to grow in the future.”

Passanante will start with SCOTT USA immediately.
