Brian Fornes

Senior Account Manager

Brian has over ten years experience working with Raleigh USA which has allowed him active participation from strategy, marketing, branding, communications, and engagement. Brian has pivoted his role from brand manager to ECHOS partner relations. His in depth industry knowledge and the community that surrounds it allows natural conversations with other brand managers which create a dynamic environment by learning their stories and helping build their brand presence.

Brian has also been taken around the world for three years as a professional mechanic for USA cycling and the 2000 US Olympic Team. This adventure has taught him that there was no pressure greater than holding someone else’s dreams in your hands.  Combine this with five years as a bicycle tour guide showed him you could visit a place numerous times but discover something different and find a new adventure each time.  And to sum it all up, If it has two wheels, you’ll probably see Brian riding it.  However, if you want to really see him in his true element then a Cyclocross race is where you should go.  With a flair for the eccentric, his “racing” is a sight to behold and truly an extension of his personality.
