Re: Best bankrupt?

Sq, exactly my point. Launch your brand on its own merits, not by bouncing off a failure, seems like a cheap way to get attention. Start a new thread and pay Toby. If you worked under those conditions, it sucks, and everyone who did should have quit before a melt down. And you did quit. Kudos. I le...

Re: Best bankrupt?

Do we think the customer service rep decided to flip customers off because he didn't like them and he liked being shouted at on the phone? Do we think the bar designer decided that customers with defective bars would not get the spare part because he wanted everyone who bought something he designed ...

Who owns Eleveight?

The guys who work there, there's no backers or investors, just long time industry guys doing it on their own. Rider owned and run. Only possible because of Peter's long standing with the companies they manufacturer with. Think they're working from Peter's house still.

Trouble For Best's owner?

It really is quite an ugly story of twists and turns. One can't help but get the feeling that he got in out his depth with some seriously big hitters in Russia and some sharks back in Spain.

Re: Best bankrupt?

Limited info on the brand is defo part of their launch strategy. Basically think of everyone you know who designed stuff for Best- that's who's running Eleveight.

Re: Best bankrupt?

BEST have no kite designer, no board designer and no accessories designer. They are all at Eleveight. Their sales manager, and the marketing guy who came after me are also there. You can have all the CEO, CFO and admin staff you want, but no product and no pipeline is end game stuff for BEST I'd say...

Re: Best bankrupt?

What's killing Best is the fact that the current owner's primary business is in the throes of a seriously dirty takeover/power struggle and he has been forced to leverage any value he had in BEST. In doing so he's made some really shit decisions and has totally tied Seb's hands in the most outrageou...

Re: Best bankrupt?

Just to reiterate, BEST haven't gone under yet. Seb might yet wrestle control away from Javier, which would be great news. I hope he can manage it.
