Powerbyke recruits Forsyth

UK-based electric bike manufacturer Powabyke recently appointed Richard Forsyth, the former editor-in-chief of Projects, the European innovation magazine, to head up publicity and promotional activities for the company as marketing manager at its headquarters in Bath.

The appointment has been set-up to forge media ties and drive press coverage for the new products and initiatives.

Forsyth said: “I started on the morning of my first day by riding the new X24 electric bike around the city. It’s a really practical form of transport, yet is it was also simply amazing fun.
