Matt Wrigley handling North of England for the brands and available to take on another

New sales agent for Orbea and Solo

Orbea Bikes and Solo Cycle Clothing are now represented in the North of England by a budding new Sales Agent.

Matt Wrigley, based in York is now responsible for the brands in the region, covering from Hull to Liverpool and up to the Scottish Border.

"After years of working in some of the leading bike shops within the North of England, and after gaining experience whilst working for distribution giant Zyro, I felt now was the time to take the leap and be solely responsible for two great brands within the North of England.

"I wanted to look at things differently to how my competitors see the market. Many other agents and reps look at things from an enthusiast point of view, rather than a business point of view. Looking at the bigger picture strategically can create a much more positive and stable future for the brands I work with."

John Styles, European sales manager for Solo, said: "Having worked with Matt previously I was impressed by his knowledge of what retailers really need and his attention to detail, he has a straightforward approach and is easy to deal with."

Orbea’s UK sales manager Damian Hackett commented: "Matt was an obvious choice for Orbea. His no-nonsense approach and strong work ethic is matched with a good business brain and an ability to find solutions where others simply see problems. This is exactly what we needed in the area and we are delighted with Matt’s endeavours since he started with us."

Both Orbea and Solo Cycle Cycle clothing are seeking new partners within the North of England. Wrigley can be contacted on 07926 880660 or by emailing one of the following email addresses:
