SUBSTANTIAL HIRINGS AT ARGON 18 TO CAPITALIZE ON ITS GROWTH

2014-09-02

Building on its success and the interest raised by the announcement of the recent signature of the pro BORA-ARGON 18 team, Argon 18 has made several key hirings to capitalize on this momentum. The Canadian company is, therefore, proud to welcome 7 new employees to its Montreal head office in: Research and Development, Finance, International Sales and Marketing/Communications. "We anticipate that the growth we have been experiencing for the past 5 years will increase tenfold in the coming years. It was, therefore, imperative to add experienced people to our team,” explains Stéphane Mayer, Argon 18 CEO. “Furthermore, this major investment is part of our commitment to continuously increase our technological innovations.”

In making the most important launch in its history (4 times more new products in 2015 than in 2014), the Research and Development department has the wind in its sails. It can now count on the specific expertise of three new experienced engineers who have also already begun conceiving the 2016 collection. Finance, Marketing and Communications and International Sales are also receiving assistance to cope with the challenges inherent in the growth of the manufacturer of high performance bikes.

The arrival of Christian Lafrance as of North American Sales Director will complete the distribution takeover in the United States. “Christian's experience will allow us to optimally drive our own sales force in the field, as we already do in Canada. The creation of the position of Director of Sales, North America demonstrates our firm desire to provide our customers with unequalled service, in addition to recognizing the importance and particularities of the North American market," specifies Stéphane Mayer.
