This hiring, coupled with an exciting development pipeline of new products is a major step toward capitalizing on POC's huge potential in this category.”

The current team and culture at POC fit in perfectly with my professional ambitions in both business and cycling.”

Ross comes to POC USA with extensive cycling industry and professional athlete experience.
