Bike Nation Appoints Leverage as Agency of Record - First Initiative is New Bike Sharing Program in Los Angeles
As Bike Nation rolls out its trail blazing bike share program in Southern California, the organization has appointed Leverage Agency as its exclusive sponsorship and sales agency.
Bike Nation's new round-the-clock bike share program will cover Anaheim, Fullerton, Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Long Beach, Venice Beach and Westwood. The bike share program is at the forefront of the region's lifestyle and transportation renaissance. The Southern California-based privately-funded bike share company has previously announced plans to install up to 4,000 bikes and 400 stations throughout Los Angeles and invest close to $30 million to develop bike share programs in southern California.
Leverage, a full-service sports and entertainment marketing agency, will predominately work to secure targeted sponsorships for Bike Nation as well as developing strategic marketing programs.
"Leverage is pumped to partner with Bike Nation," said Ben Sturner, Founder and CEO of Leverage Agency. "With similar, successful bike share programs in cities like New York, London and Paris, we look forward to introducing the program in the bike-friendly city of Los Angeles and throughout southern California."
"We take great pride in the quality of Bike Nation's product and services and felt it was of similar importance that we partner with a best-in-class organization like the Leverage Agency to help secure sponsorship fitting for what will be the most expansive and cohesive bike share program on the West Coast," said Navin Narang, Founder and Co-Managing Partner of Bike Nation and its parent company, First Pacific Holdings.
