Gates expands team as production grows

Gates Corporation has hired Justin Hawkins, a former product testing manager and account executive at Pearl Izumi, as a market specialist in the Gates Carbon Drive bicycle division.

Hawkins will help streamline the commercialization of new Gates Carbon Drive products, working closely with the engineers, supply chain managers and sales and marketing staff. His addition comes as Gates continues to add more products to its expanding line of bicycle belts, sprockets, cranks and crankset assemblies, sprocket guards and more.

“Justin brings a long history of bike industry experience and expertise in supply chain management to Gates, where he will spearhead efforts to speed up the commercialization process and help us bring new belt drive products to market faster,” said global director of Gates Carbon Drive Systems Todd Sellden.

“I’ve been a fan of the Gates belt drive since the first time I saw it a decade ago and I’m really excited to help this revolutionary technology continue to grow and innovate,” added Hawkins.
