On life at Ibis
‘I founded Ibis Cycles way back in 1981. Today we’re still a tiny company of only 12 people, so we each wear a lot of hats. My primary duties these days are marketing, communications, website, those sorts of things. The other owners are Hans Heim, Tom Morgan, Roxy Lo and Colin Hughes. We all work here in key roles.’
