Renthal, along with long standing employee David Kaiser, has established a new role of street brand manager to help bring focus to the street and sportbike markets.

Kaiser has been an integral part of Renthal’s U.S. operation for the last 18 years, acting as national sales manager. This new role allows Renthal to specifically tap in to Kaiser’s 40 years of motorcycle industry experience and passion for street motorcycles and bring renewed focus to that area of the business and grow sales in the North America and beyond.  

“I am excited to announce this new role which has been created with David’s input to help us grow the road side of our business. David has been a critical part of our U.S. operations for 18+ years and I know that he will bring the same level of passion and dedication to this new position,” said President of Renthal, Tom Wade.

“Despite Renthal’s successful history in road racing, winning 18 World titles, 15 AMA titles over 60 Isle of Man TT wins this will be the first time in the company’s history where we have someone who’s daily focus is on how we can better serve our street and sportbike customers. This is a really exciting development for Renthal and David is perfect for this role,” said Commercial Director, Rees Williams.

“I am really excited to establish this new role at Renthal. We have always discussed needing more street focus but have never been previously able to tackle it. I am really looking forward to using my passion for street motorcycles to make it a bigger focus for Renthal,” Kaiser said.

David assumes his responsibilities on Nov. 1, 2019.
