ODI Grips is growing its powersports sales and development programs with the help of powersports veteran Johnny Jump, who has been hired to serve as powersports sales and marketing manager for both domestic and international markets. Jump previously served 13 years at K&N Engineering, Inc. as national sales manager and brand manager along with 11 years of experience at Troy Lee Designs, Inc. as global sales and product manager.

Jump brings to the ODI brand a strong relationship based skill set of working very closely with powersports distribution, including sales rep training and national sales programs. and is very interested to take time to develop a dealer development program to support the Powersports dealers through online referral programs and in-store displays that can further support national distribution.  “There are many new opportunities here at ODI”, says Jump.  “I’ve ridden ODI grips for over 20 years in Moto, Off-Road and Mountain Biking.  Hands down they make the best grips in the business.”

Colby Young, general manager at ODI Grips brought Jump in to lead, support and organize the sales department. “Johnny has so much experience in all powersports markets,” Colby said. “We need someone who can nurture our existing relationships while bringing in new insight to opportunities outside of our core markets. I think with some collaboration with our staff, we can expand into new markets while continuing to develop our core products in moto, off-road and ATV segments.”

EDGE Plastics (dba ODI), a small family-oriented injection molding company, draws, designs and manufactures each grip in-house, according to Jump. “I’m really looking forward to getting settled in and taking the company to the next level. ODI works very closely with each of their partners to develop products that will work best for their specific type of riding. The team has done an exceptional job at building the brand image through excellent relationships at the highest level of racing, impeccable product development and quality manufacturing. I hope to be able to continue the growth and broaden the spectrum of product available for more riding markets. Keep on the lookout for more to come from ODI,” says Jump.
