Seattle Bike Supply, a member of the Accell Group of companies, recently hired Doug Stuart to oversee its marketing department. Most recently Stuart managed the North America aftermarket sales and marketing arm of Taiwanese suspension supplier SR Suntour.

In addition to its robust International parts and accessory distribution business which serves over 3,000 independent bicycle dealers, Seattle Bike Supply owns several brands including Pryme Protective Gear, Torker Bicycles and BMX market leader Redline Bicycles. In addition to their own brands, Seattle Bike Supply is the exclusive US distributor for Lapierre Bicycles and We The People Bicycles.

I couldnt be more excited to be given the opportunity take on the role as Marketing Manager and work with a very talented group of people in order to market Seattle Bike Supply as a leading P&A distributor as well as promoting its very impressive list of brands. The challenges will range from taking our market leading BMX product lines and race programs to an even higher level while also working with some of our other
brands to gain a better foothold in key market segments, said Stuart.

Not only has Doug previously owned his own businesses, but he has had the opportunity to work for some of our industrys leading brands. He has a broad base of knowledge from marketing, to sales, to sourcing and operations and I am sure this experience will be invaluable in helping Seattle Bike Supply to make our brands and service even better, said Seattle Bike Supply President Chuck Hooper.
