Dunlop Motorcycle welcomes new product manager

Posted on


The Dunlop Tyres Motorcycle division is pleased to welcome Mark Sears to the team as Product Support Manager as of 1st October 2011.

The position has been filled internally by Mark who has 23 years of experience with Dunlop. Mark directly replaces Bryn Phillips.

Mark began as an apprentice with Dunlop in 1988 and after three years with the company moved into the motorsport division. Over the space of 20 years Mark has worked with a number of winning teams at some of the largest championships around the world including WSB, World Endurance/GP, AMA, BSB and IDM.

Most recently Mark sat in the position of Chief Design Engineer for Dunlop Motorcycle Motorsport and his expertise in tyre design and technology are second to none. Mark has patents for the D208 and D208A and was the co designer on Dunlop’s first 16.5 inch rear slick tyre.

As a rider himself Mark has a wide range of experience with both race and road products and currently rides a Ducati Monster.

Mark comments: “I am really pleased to join the ever improving Dunlop motorcycle marketing team. The entire motorcycle product range is the youngest and strongest we have ever had. We also have new products on the horizon and I can’t wait to increase my involvement with our consumers & dealers via our ‘Race to Road’ program. As a motorcyclist myself, I know the importance of high performing tyres and how they can instill confidence in a rider. I look forward to working with the team soon.”

Mark will report directly to Andy Marfleet, Dunlop Brand Manager, as well as having a close working relationship with Dunlop Motorcycle SBU Manager Dominic Clifford and the Dunlop Motorcycle Sales team.

Andy comments: “We are pleased to welcome Mark to the Dunlop Marketing team. Mark’s motorsport background and extensive knowledge of motorcycle tyres will help us to communicate our ‘Race to Road’ philosophy to end users and dealers. Mark will be the key technical contact for the Dunlop motorcycle range as well as training dealers and internal associates. I wish Mark all the very best in his new role with us.”
