Oregon based start-up EV maker Brammo is getting ready to launch its first electric motorcycle soon, so it had decided to bring on some experienced hands to help out with marketing, sales and engineering. John Farris is coming aboard to head up the marketing, communications and branding staff. Farris has past experience with similar roles on the Chevy Silverado team at GM and heading up motorsports marketing firm, Hardcard Holdings.
Adrian Stewart will lead the efforts to actually sell the Enertia and follow-on products to retail customers. That will include setting up distribution and service channels for the bikes.
However, none of that means much if the machines aren’t properly engineered. For a battery-powered bike the electrical engineering is especialy important, so Roger Gerson will be joining from the recently bankrupt Vectrix to lead the EE staff. Brammo is also looking for bodies to fill other roles at the company so check out the site at brammo.com if you’re an engineer or can count beans.
