BAKERSFIELD, CA (June 19, 2007) At its June monthly meeting the Off-Road Business Association (ORBA) elected Revelle Harrison to their Board of Directors. Revelle started his career with KTM in 1998 as the Media Relations & KTM JR. Supercross Challenge coordinator. Shortly thereafter, he moved into sales and is currently the West Sales Group Leader. In December of this year, he was promoted to be the Western Sales Office General Manager as well. Revelle is married and has two small children. In his free time he enjoys racing Grand Prix and Motocross, as well as camping and trail riding at many of the OHV areas in Southern California.
Revelle replaces Scot Harden on ORBA’s board. Scot served on the ORBA Board of Directors for four and one half years and his input and guidance were key to the growth of the organization. Scot is currently focusing his efforts on growing KTM Adventure Tours North America. This fast growing new division of KTM North America was launched in February of this year. The Adventure Tour concept is very popular in other parts of the world and KTM expects this division to be very successful considering the beautiful terrain available in the southwestern portions of the US and Mexico.
Rocky Trevino, Chairman of the Board and owner of Cycle Parts West, said, “We would like to thank Scot for his keen insight and valuable guidance during ORBA’s formative years. While we will miss seeing Scot, we welcome Revelle and look forward to working with him to continue making ORBA an even better advocate and more effective for the industry. Mr. Harrison shares several traits common to all other ORBA Board members, including having proven himself to be a good businessman and industry leader, as well as being a passionate off-road enthusiast himself. Like most of the senior staff at KTM North America, Mr. Harrison has an extensive record of achievement in motorcycle competition.
ORBA is a national trade association composed of off-road related businesses united to promote common goals that support the prosperity and growth of the off-road industry.
