Scorpion Sports, Inc. has added veteran motorcycle apparel developer Edward Wilkinson to its lineup as director of development.
“We are incredibly fortunate to bring Edward on board to oversee and expand our development team,” John Kim, vice president of business operations. “Not only is he an avid motorcyclist, he is also a materials and production expert. He was the innovator behind Klim’s successful dual sport line, and we are excited to bring his broad range of skills, experience and enthusiasm to the Scorpion family. Scorpion’s vision is to offer high-end, technically-advanced motorcycle apparel at a reasonable price, and adding Edward to an already experienced and seasoned development team will help solidify our position to do just that.”
“After looking at several brand opportunities, I felt that Scorpion has the most potential as well as the unique resources to enable them to bring advanced technologies to market in a way that no other company can,” Wilkinson said. “I am excited and honored to be a part of such a dynamic and dedicated team, and I am looking forward to bringing consumers a whole new range of ground-breaking and technologically advanced riding gear.”
Scorpion has spent the last year rebuilding its infrastructure from the ground up and is now poised for expansion.
“They have unique supply resources that will enable them to bring a variety of innovative products to market quicker, and at better price points than any of their competitors,” Wilkinson said.
