The relationship started with a chance introduction that Mike Lichter made between the founders of Sucker Punch Sallys, Jeff Cochran and Donny Loos and owner of Rise Above Consulting, Ken Conte during a bike photo shoot at Lichter’s studio in Boulder, Colorado.
Rise Above Consulting helped SPS create and execute their production bike launch and successfully got the brand out to the public. When SPS was bought and relocated to Arizona, things shifted gears to bikes being only a fraction of the overall operation, according to a release from Rise Above.
"It was a difficult decision as I have been so involved with the brand from day one, but it was time to move on. We had a great run. We took the brand from where it was just Donny and Jeff working out of their garage in Ohio, to an internationally recognized brand and we are proud of that," said Ken Conte, owner of Rise Above.
Currently Rise Above Consulting represents several other clients including Hot Leathers, The Legendary Buffalo Chip, K&G Cycles, LA County Choprods, Custom Design Studios, The Seminole Hard Rock Roadhouse, Gravesend Cycles, Stevensons Cycles, and Stripper Juice as well as being the official publicist for Sara Ray, Susan Amador and Ami James.
