North American SuperMoto has named co-founder and board member John Zolikoff president and CEO.
Zolikoff comes to NASMOTO from KTM North America, where he served as managing director of business development, managed KTM’s parts, accessories and apparel, and was responsible for aspects of KTM’s SuperMoto efforts in North America. Preceding his move to KTM, Zolikoff was an international sales and marketing manager for Harley-Davidson Motor Co.
Zolikoff's first priority after taking charge at NASMOTO was to assemble a new operational team with expertise in event management, education, communication, racing and commercial development. The team has moved to expand its race schedule and new partnerships and ventures, which the company will announce soon.
Another move Zolikoff has made to ensure NASMOTO stays in tune with the needs of the industry was to institute a SuperMoto advisory board that is comprised of Brok McAllister, Supermoto USA president; Dale Schultz, Cooperland USA Raceway owner; and Darrick Lucchesi, West Coast SuperMoto School founder. The board will assist NASMOTO in developing rider, track and promoter assets.
