“Karla brings a fantastic skill set to RockyMounts,” enthused Judd. “She’s great at branding, graphic design, video production and photography. Her main priorities at RockyMounts will be to oversee our branding, produce our dealer and consumer newsletters, develop photo and video assets for our website, catalog, and point-of-purchase designs, and manage our social media program.”

Knight, a graduate of Virginia’s James Madison University, most recently worked in the Golden area as a freelance designer. She is originally from Virginia, but relocated to Colorado in 2013.

Her previous positions include senior graphic designer for HFF, L.P., a commercial real estate firm, and graphic designer at the Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative.

“I’ve ridden bikes all my life – both road and mountain – so the opportunity to join RockyMounts is a great fit for me,” said Knight. She plans to install the new swing-away RockyMounts BackStage on her car as quickly as possible.

RockyMounts, which just started shipping its new line of bicycle locks, recently relocated to larger headquarters, updated its operating systems, and launched an integrated b-to-b website. In 2018, it plans to launch products in completely new categories and introduce new marketing initiatives as well.
