Management Summary

Dan Psycle received a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy from Washington & Jefferson College. After college he worked in a bicycle shop as a mechanic but quickly moved to sales and finally manager all in a span of a year.  Dan stayed at the shop for two more additional years, learning all of the nuances of the bicycle industry.  By this time, Dan felt he had a comfortable grasp of the bicycle industry and now it was time for more schooling.

Dan moved out to Eugene, OR to pursue a MBA from the University of Oregon. A friend of Dan’s family had a wholesale distribution company for plumbing supplies.  Dan spent a week with this company to gain insight into the wholesale distribution industry in hopes of transferring this information into a distribution business for the bicycling industry.
