Pace joins SSU from YT Industries, where for two years he served as that brand’s US graphic designer. In addition to extensive work in the bike industry, Pace has over 7 years of design experience with a creative skillset that ranges across traditional and digital media, which is especially important for SSU’s catalog of B2B, DTC, and hybrid brands. “I’m thrilled to work in conjunction with the strong team assembled at SSU, especially as it allows me to spread my creative talents across an amazingly diverse portfolio of emerging and legacy brands,” said Roghaar.
