“I joined Reid as the Sydney store manager in March 2012 while in Australia on a working holiday visa from the UK. During my time with Reid Australia, I got results and was given a lot of opportunity. I was quickly promoted to National Sales Manager then General Manager. My Fiancée and I wanted to return to the UK to get married and start a family. James Reid, the Founder, proposed we continue working together and set up an office in the UK and start distributing globally, which we did. We now have a team of 6 in the UK where we distribute Reid bikes to 23 countries globally. I’m now the Managing Director and a shareholder of Reid Bikes Ltd, the global distribution arm. At Reid, if you take initiative, work hard and get results there is great opportunity.”
