We are looking for a visionary and dynamic CEO to lead our Bicycle Brand and Manufaction company with several hundred employees in Europe. You will be responsible for overseeing the overall direction and performance of the company, as well as developing and executing the long-term strategy and vision.
As a CEO, you will report to the shareholder and manage a team of five direct reports: Sales Director, Finance Director, Operations Director, Supply Chain Director and HR Director. You will also work closely with other stakeholders, such as customers, suppliers, regulators, and industry associations.
You will face the challenge of operating in a volatile and unpredictable consumer market, with less demand but high competition. You will need to adapt to the changing preferences and needs of the customers, especially in the e-bike segment, which is the main driver of growth. You will also need to explore the possibility of changing the business model in the near future.
To be successful in this role, you should have a proven track record of leading a cycling bike production company or a similar business in the industry. You should also have a strong knowledge of the market trends, the customer behavior, and the regulatory environment. You should also have excellent leadership, communication, and decision-making skills, and - of course- a passion for cycling and sustainable transportation.
