Motogear Limited - the UK representative of premier Italian brands Spidi clothing, Nolan and X-lite helmets and now Rizoma accessories - is rapidly moving forward with its ambitious 2013 expansion plans.

Just months after the firm moved into its new offices on Kettering's Telford Way, and weeks after the news that it is the UK exclusive representative for Rizoma, Motogear is pleased to announce that Jason Pennellier has been appointed as its Business Development Manager.

Jason has spent over a decade in the motorcycle industry, working for some of the largest retailers in the UK. He has also spent time working for one of the premier Italian manufacturers also as Business Development Manager. He says: "I look forward to the challenge of helping Motogear thrive and develop with Spidi, XPD boots, Nolan Group and Rizoma."

The recent addition of Rizoma to the Motogear portfolio means Jason's appointment could not have come at a better time. Rizoma is based near Milan and manufactures high-quality motorcycle components and accessories. Rizoma's specialist replacement parts include updated handlebars, mirrors, engine and fairing guards through to replacement footpegs and indicators. Rizoma is also the supplier of the innovative Proguard System, used by every machine on the MotoGP grid. The Proguard System ensures that the front brake lever is not accidentally engaged in the event of a collision with another bike.

Motogear is no stranger to Italian brands. Since forming in 2001, the company has been the UK representative for Spidi clothing and expanded at the end of 2012 to incorporate the Nolan Group, which includes Nolan, X-lite and Grex helmets as well as the N-Com range of Bluetooth motorcycle communication devices.

Commenting on his company's progress, Trevor Hall of Motogear said; "These are exciting times for Motogear. With the addition of the Nolan Group in 2012, hiring new staff, moving to new offices and now the appointment of Jason it is all pointing to a strong 2013. Jason will be a welcome addition as he has worked on both retail and wholesale sides of the business. He is in a great position to help Motogear and its expanding dealer network."
