He continued, "During this past year Tue, working with the McKinsey & Co., established corporate strategic growth plans for Triumph along with worldwide marketing goals. Recruiting someone of Tue's caliber to focus on our worldwide sales and marketing activities is a key next step in our plan and our commitment to meeting those goals."

Mr. Mantoni joined Triumph as Commercial Director on August 1, 2003 and has been traveling around the world meeting with each of the subsidiaries. Commenting on Mr. Mantoni's appointment Mark Brady, General Manager Triumph Motorcycles (America) Ltd., Said, "We are very pleased to have Tue on the Triumph team and we are confident that his leadership will assist in expanding market share for Triumph and extending the reach of this venerable icon."

Returning from recent visits to the United States, Tue Mantoni stated, "The US market represents the single most important market segment in the company's plans both in terms of current size and future growth. I am encouraged by the strong reception to the Triumph line and committed to the further development of Triumph's dealer network, product line and customer satisfaction."

If I thought it'd do any good, I'd pay his first year's dues to MO.

A funny blurb pushrod puts on the end -- he's obviously aware of the general industry knowledge that Bloor -- and thus, top Triumph management -- hate the Internet and don't see any value in it. We get testbikes through the good graces of our pal Will Tate, who manages the LA fleet. We say it gets MO testbikes, thusly the Internet has purpose and meaning... ;-) --MO
