TAMPA, FLORIDA: Blacklist Distribution is stoked to announce former J&B  sales representative Aaron Edler as its new National accounts manager. Aaron spent about 4 years as the territory representative in  Virginia/North Carolina.

Blacklist Distribution was founded in October 2020 as a unique bike shop in Tampa, dedicated to core riders of BMX, Dirt Jumping, Gravel, Mountain Biking, and offering local suspension service. Expanding to distribution to offer other IBDs quality products with great margins was the next logical step.

“I’m thrilled to be joining a rider, veteran, and minority-owned business.” said Aaron. “Blacklist Distribution has worked hard on its own lines of production for its house brand products, that don’t involve manufacturing in Asia. With Granite Design and Funn, they have a solid foundation in Asia. Diversifying this way is the kind of forward-thinking I want to be a part of.”

Speaking about the company itself, Aaron shared his excitement. “The ownership and I share the same ethos, which is rare these days in the industry. Blacklist & SCg Shoe Company are known for their great company culture, and hands-on support of their factory workers; which is why I leaped at the opportunity to help build on over 2 decades doing business.”

“We are excited to bring Aaron’s years of experience as a bike shop employee, demo driver, sales rep, and rider into the fold.” said Matthew DesOrmeaux, Co-Founder of Blacklist Distribution. “Aaron’s experience, excitement, and passion for the cycling industry will help us move to the next level.”
