Industry Veteran Joins FITBENCH as VP of Sales
As FITBENCH continues its impressive growth and further solidifies its position as a fitness industry innovator and leader, the company has tapped the expertise of 25+-year industry veteran Brian Weaver, who joins the team as vice president of sales.
Weaver spent 8 years as a member of the TRX sales team, holding multiple positions including regional sales manager, national sales manager, and, most recently, senior director of sales. He was responsible for overseeing commercial sales for key accounts, regional accounts, dealers, distributors and specialty retailers – both domestically and globally – with revenue targets of more than $20 million.
“Brian comes from one of the most innovative companies in the world, and we’ve modeled FITBENCH on much of what TRX has achieved,” said Tyler Danen, founder and CEO of FITBENCH. “We are thrilled to have him as we kick off a big year. He knows what it takes to bring a company from one product to many, establish strategic partnerships, and develop a rapidly growing team.”
At FITBENCH, Weaver leads North American sales, with a focus on the commercial segment, encompassing national and regional key accounts, franchises, the military, and non-profits, as well as managing the dealer-distributor network. With three direct reports, he also oversees marketing and sales operations.
“What attracted me to FITBENCH was the people, product, and opportunity to make an impact that not only changes the industry but also affects tens of thousands of people as the company expands,” he said. “Plus, FITBENCH wanted me for who I am and what I can bring. You don’t find that too often in business today.”
In addition to his sales experience, Weaver’s professional roles have included executive leadership coach, small business owner, general manager, manager, supervisor, and personal trainer. He has a proven track record in coaching sales teams and individuals to exceed revenue targets, as well as working with leadership team members on company strategy, operations, marketing, and sales.
Weaver graduated with a B.S. degree in human performance from San Jose State University in California, where he played Division 1 men’s soccer, serving as team captain his junior and senior years.
