PORTLAND, Ore. (BRAIN) — Benny Cruickshank has formed and launched a new marketing communications agency, Be Courteous Communications. The agency’s first clients include the Dutch brand Gazelle Bicycles and Boulder, Colorado based RockyMounts.

Cruickshank has held marketing leadership positions at SRAM, Bell Helmets, True Communications, and most recently was the global communications manager and bike marketing manager at Smith Optics.

“Taking the plunge into launching this agency has been humbling and gratifying,” said Cruickshank. “Be Courteous is uniquely positioned coupling my in-house brand experience with my agency experience, and I’m excited to work closely with my clients to build and deploy marketing strategies to accomplish their goals.”

With both Gazelle Bicycles and RockyMounts, Be Courteous Communications will lead the development and execution of campaign calendars, manage day to day PR and media relations, and create and coordinate digital marketing efforts creating consistency across trade and consumer touch points.

“Benny worked for us in our early days and we are happy to welcome him back to the RockyMounts’ crew with his new venture, Be Courteous Communications,” said Bobby Noyes, RockyMounts founder. “His passion and understanding of marketing in our space will bring fresh concepts and better communication between our dealers, customers and RockyMounts.”
