AMES, Iowa (BRAIN) — North America Cycles has added seven new employees, in its sales, art, and marketing departments, the company announced Friday.
The new sales employees are Tyler Beery and Casey Gries; a new marketing staffer is Ashley Scuffham; Matt Boley, Kerstie Larsen, Braden Lauterbach and Max Schmidt join the art department.
Beery and Gries will give support to the near 20 sales representatives NAC has on the road. They have been hired as inside IBD-specific sales staff. Both have bicycle sales and purchasing backgrounds and can be reached at email@example.com.
Scuffham will assist with custom branded sales. "We offer so many custom items and it is a growing part of our business as dealers are now looking to create their own custom branded items," said Matt Nims, the president of North America Cycles. NAC offers custom water bottles, bicycles, cycling jerseys and apparel, and more. To reach NAC's custom promotional department, dealers can email: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit naccustoms.com.
Boley and Larsen are to help with the increased work load of these custom orders. Both recent graduates of Iowa State University. "Our goal is to manage all of our catalogs in-house now," said Nims.
Lauterbach has been hired to manage NAC's print room. The company has invested in a 22-foot long RICOH Pro C7100sx printer. It can print full color and black and white on a variety of paper types and sizes. The company said the printer will give it the flexibility to efficiently create programs for their reps and dealers. The printer also will be used to create custom mailers depending on region. NAC has also invested in two new pad printing machines that allow them to print on products such as bells, locks, and lights.
Schmidt will be spearheading NAC's social media efforts. He will also be working as the in-house photographer and videographer.
