EMP: Pure Fix Cycles Appoints Rob Kozich as International Sales Manager

Fixed gear bicycle brand Pure Fix Cycles today announces the appointment of bike industry veteran Rob Kozich as International Sales Manager.

 

The addition follows the opening of Pure Fix’s European corporate office in Rotterdam, The Netherlands in August 2014 and further positions the brand for significant growth in the international marketplace in 2015.

 “Rob will be our international brand ambassador, building on our success in Europe and bringing Pure Fix to new corners of the globe,” said Pure Fix Cycles president Andy Abowitz.  “With so many years in the bike industry under his belt, he is the ideal choice to lead our global expansion.”   

Kozich brings 15 years of experience working in international distribution and retail with Trek and Dahon to the Pure Fix team. He will be based in Prague, Czech Republic, where his focus will be on developing Pure Fix’s international sales and business strategies.

“I am really excited to be working with such a vibrant brand and the enthusiastic group at Pure Fix,” said Kozich. “It will be a lot of fun to develop the brand on a global scale and get more people on bikes.”

Founded in Los Angeles in 2010, Pure Fix quickly carved out a niche for itself in the urban and commuter communities by designing and marketing high quality fixed gear and single speed bikes for women and men that are stylish, comfortable, durable and a great value. Pure Fix expanded its repertoire in late 2013 with the Pure City line of urban/commuter lifestyle bikes for women and men in single, three and eight speed versions.
