SRAM medstifter og mangeårig CEO har fra årskiftet skiftet rolle fra Administrerende Direktør til Bestyrelsesformand. Ny CEO bliver Ken Lousberg.  Skiftet har været kendt internt i koncernen siden efteråret.  Stan Day har gennem de sidste 31 år været den karismatiske og udadvendte frontfigur for SRAM. Stan har været vellidt og afholdt af alle indenfor branchen. Således har han også været initiativtager til en række tiltag indenfor koncernen for at række længere og bredere ud end kun som cykelproducent. To af de mest markante er Word Bicycle Relief Fondation og opstart af Cycling Industry Club som idag er vel undervejs i ECF

I en netop offentliggjort pressemeddelse udtaler Stan Day:  “It’s been a thrilling ride. When we started we wanted to create and manufacture components that inspired cyclists. We began by making road Grip Shift that didn’t sell very well, and then a mountain bike Grip Shift that took the market by storm — from six people in a dusty factory to over 3,000 global team members offering leading drivetrain, brake and suspension systems. I am super pleased that Ken has joined the company. It is clear to me that he has the skill sets and experience base to help lead us to the next level. SRAM will continue to be a private company owned by the Day family and the management team. It will continue to focus its innovation and business within the bike industry.”

Om hans efterfølger, “Lousberg graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in mechanical engineering and received his MBA from the University of Colorado. He has served in numerous senior executive roles. Before joining SRAM Lousberg served as president of Terex Cranes and Utilities, with more $2 billion in revenue and more than 5,000 employees.

“Stepping into the role of CEO is exciting. I feel honored to be asked to lead such a great team, in such a great industry,” Lousberg said. “Stan and the leadership team have provided a great platform to continue SRAM’s arc of growth and we will continue to focus on our customers’ needs, leading product innovation and maintaining our commitment to our global team and partners.”

SRAM blev grundlagt i 1987 og beskæftigier idag godt 3000 medarbejder i 15 lande. og regnes for den andens største producent af cykelkomponenter efter Shimano.
