From a press release
issued by SpokesPeople LLC
SpokesPeople LLC, a specialty motorcycle PR and Events agency, wishes to announce a change to company staff, positioning for growth and future opportunities.
Monday, July 08, 2013 - Hello to our friends and compatriots in the motorcycle and powersports industry, it has been our pleasure and honor to work in the motorcycle field for the past fifteen years, and we count many of you as friends and riding buddies from our years of work together. SpokesPeople founders Robert and Manny Pandya have had the pleasure of working with many brands in many capacities including PR, photography and video creative, press and consumer event management, as spokesmen for consumer shows and in a myriad of little ways that ultimately help us promote the brands and the industry that have we love. It’s our pleasure to make the following announcements regarding our primary clients and our company.
Manny Pandya will shift his role from External Relations Manager for Victory Motorcycles to an internal role for SpokesPeople that includes events and new client acquisitions as well as continuing to manage the daily operations for the company. “I’m excited to expand the opportunities for SpokesPeople,” says Manny. “I’m going to miss directly representing Victory Motorcycles as the brand has been a huge part of my life for the past ½ decade, but I’m equally looking forward to expanding our business into events and content generation for powersports companies.”
SpokesPeople LLC is privileged to welcome Kyle Clack to the team. Kyle will be taking over the role of External Relations Manager for Victory Motorcycles from Manny starting immediately. Kyle’s experience and reputation are beyond reproach, and his skills will play an important part in promoting the Victory Motorcycles brand. He spent almost a decade with the nationally known Ride for Kids event series benefitting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. During that time Kyle’s team tallied up nearly $40 million in funds going towards medical research and family support. Prior to his RFK efforts, Kyle worked in the motorcycle industry in various roles including dealerships, web-based marketing and as national sales manager for Ducati North America. It’s this variety of experience and his investment in time being in front of enthusiast riders, leading large events and working directly with several OEM’s that makes Kyle an ideal addition to the SpokesPeople team.
“I’m fired up to be part of the SpokesPeople team, and to represent Victory Motorcycles.” says Kyle. “I have followed Victory closely over the years. They have great motorcycles, and getting the chance to be part of the team and represent the brand is an awesome opportunity for me. I’ve already spent lots of time in front of and with many journalists in the motorcycle media, and the chance to continue that in representing Victory Motorcycles is really exciting for me.”
SpokesPeople principal Robert Pandya will continue his role as the External Relations Manager for Indian Motorcycle, a position that started in January of 2013 following six years representing Victory Motorcycles, and a prior six years with Aprilia USA. In addition Robert will oversee PR integration between the two Polaris Motorcycles brands. “It’s been a honor to be part of the Polaris Motorcycles team for the past years,” Says Robert. “The enthusiasm and variety of the great sport of motorcycling is be reflected in the brands we represent, and the motorcycles we ride. We are very happy to continue our tradition of coming up with creative solutions and keeping in mind that this is an entertainment industry. I’ve been working in motorcycling for over 15 years, and I know that the combined experience, creativity, flexibility and energy from our team will exponentially multiply with Kyle on board, and with Manny driving our operations and new client engagement.”
SpokesPeople LLC, Manny and Robert Pandya are based in the Austin TX area, with Kyle Clack based out of Asheville NC. The SpokesPeople team will be out in force for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and many other events including the International Motorcycle Shows and the occasional “just for the hell of it” ride. We look forward to seeing you and continuing to work in this great industry.
Please feel free to get in touch with any one of us and to welcome Kyle to his new role.
