MAG NAMES NEW RETAIL GROUP PRESIDENT Motorcycle Aftermarket Group (MAG) announced that Zach Parham will assume the position of president of MAG Retail Group, which includes Motorcycle Super- store and J&P Cycles. Parham replaces Kevin Strawbridge, who is stepping down to pursue new opportunities. Parham, 32, has been with the company for 10 years and his most recent role was vice president, Merchandising and general man- ager for J&P Cycles. He has been a member of the MAG Retail Group Leadership Team for several years and has held roles of increas- ing responsibility throughout his tenure with the company. Parham takes the reigns after helping J&P Cycles achieve its best retail sales month in the company's 38-year history in April. Motorcycle Superstore achieved an enviable 9.3 (out of 10) customer satisfaction score in May, as measured by BizRate. "It's an honor to represent these legendary brands, and I am eager to lead our talented team towards a successful future," Parham said. "Kevin led us through some difficult but important changes, which have set us up to take the business to the next level. I'm driven by our relationship with our customers and am committed to make our customer experi- ence even better by being the innovator in motorcycle industry retail." "We appreciate the work that Kevin and Zach have done to transform our retail busi- ness. Consolidation of operations, improve- ment in fulfillment and expansion of our customer support are improvements that our customers feel," said Andy Graves, president of Motorcycle Aftermarket Group. Zach is the second-generation Parham to lead J&P Cycles. Zach's father, John Parham founded J&P Cycles in 1979 and led the com- pany until its sale to MAG. Zach Parham's appointment is effective immediately, and Strawbridge will remain with the MAG Retail Group through July 31 to support the transition.

In addition to Bell's official helmet dis- tinction and activations within Nitro Circus events, the partnership paves the way for product collaborations and retail initiatives of varying levels in 2018 that leverage the com- bined strength of the two brands. "Nitro Circus is all about breaking bound- aries and establishing 'firsts in action sports,' and Bell is all about inspiring and enabling the next generation of boundary breakers, so this really is a match made in action sports heaven," said Chris Sackett, Bell Helmets vice president.
