KENT, WA (BRAIN) — Raleigh has hired 30-year bicycling and outdoor industry veteran Alan Rowland as director of sales for the West territory.

Based in Davis, California, Rowland will manage a sales team of 11 reps and report to national sales director George Simone. Raleigh’s West Coast territory covers 16 states.

“Not only does Alan have extensive and relevant industry experience, but he possesses the level of passion for this sport that is required to drive sales to the next level,” said Chris Speyer, chief operations officer of Raleigh parent Accell North America.

“Equipped with his business acumen and great personality, we are proud to welcome Alan to the Raleigh sales force.”
