"When looking for the right partner in the US we knew that deep roots within the cycling and lifestyle cultures were critical. But we also understood the need to break through the noise with a team that offers more than traditional PR," said Riese & Muller Managing Director, Dr. Sandra Wolf. "ECHOS brings a deep conviction for telling our brand story as well as experience developing the creative engagement opportunities that will allow our brand to become a category leader within the US.
