Giant adds fifth regional sales manager

Published August 22, 2012

NEWBURY PARK, CA (BRAIN)Giant USA has added Karsten Hagen as Northwest regional manager. His region includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Northern California.

With this hiring, Giant USA has five regional managers: Hagen, Geoff Godsey, Monica Davis, Scott Helvie and Josh Fonner.

“These five will visit Giant retailers more often and work closer with account executives to improve our service,” said Giant USA executive sales director John Thompson. “This supercharges our goal to earn our retailers' support.”

Hagen has been involved with cycling for more than 25 years and comes to Giant from Garmin International, where he was Western regional sales manager for fitness products. “He's an industry veteran who has spent enough time outside the industry to know what needs to change,” said Thompson. “He's a strong addition to our power-up efforts.”

Hagen and his family live in Bend, Oregon.
