Osprey Packs, Inc., a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative packs, announced today that Kyle Bezanson of KB Sales Group has joined the company’s bike rep force. Kyle will take over the Northern California territory that was vacated by Robert Wilkins of KW Sales when Robert took a full time factory sales position with Orbea Bicycles and Orca Clothing.
â€œWe were saddened by Robert’s departure. He is a very professional and trusted sales rep who was part of our initial focus group before we made the entry into the bike market and he will be missed,â€ said Osprey Bike Sales Manager Patrick Piller. â€œHowever, Kyle is a strong brand builder and we are excited about the focus and enthusiasm he brings into this territory.â€
Kyle has been an independent sales rep in Northern California for 17 years representing brands such as SIDI, Gore Bike and Run Wear, Tifosi Optics and Rolf Prima Wheels. Kyle will be servicing Osprey in a territory from San Luis Obispo north to Tahoe, CA and the Sparks/Reno NV area.
â€œOsprey is an excellent fit for my agency,â€ said Bezanson. â€œThe brand continues to innovate, produce and expand its product mix for the ever changing and demanding category that is cycling. I look forward to the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.â€
Kyle can be reached at (916) 415-0246, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Independent since 1974 and anchored by the design genius of company founder and owner, Mike Pfotenhauer, Osprey Packs has long set the standard for creating innovative, high quality gear carrying equipment. The collection includes packs and bags designed to help adventurers enjoy their outdoor, biking and travel pursuits.
The location of company headquarters in Cortez, Colorado, near the rugged San Juan Mountains and on the edge of desert canyon country, provides a constant inspiration and a superb testing ground for Osprey products. Osprey also maintains a product development office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, near the factories where they manufacture their products, ensuring face-to-face relationships and transparency with their suppliers. In 2010, Osprey opened a design office in Mill Valley, California, a hub of design talent and the birthplace of mountain biking. All three of these offices play a crucial role in creating Osprey gear that lasts a lifetime.
To celebrate its 35thÂ anniversary in 2009, Osprey launched the All Mighty Guarantee, an enhancement of a lifetime warranty that was already one of the most robust in the industry. Free of charge, the company will repair any damage or defect in its product â€“ whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday.Â Every Osprey product reflects the company’s commitment to protect the wild places its customers love to explore.
