Icons in Business

featuring

Chris Fortune
President, Saris Cycling Group

Chris Fortune and his wife, Sara, purchased what was then known as Graber Products in 1989. Under their ownership, the company evolved from being solely a manufacturer of bicycle racks into what is now Saris Cycling Group: a multifaceted manufacturer of a wide array of cycling products for leisure and training. Its products are distributed worldwide to over 60 countries, but despite its global expansion, the company has been committed to its legacy of creating American-made items with locally sourced products since 1973.

Join President Chris Fortune as he shares his lessons learned leading this iconic Wisconsin company.
