TERRYVILLE, Conn. - Mustang Motorcycle Products announced that technical adviser Matt Kulman has been promoted to product manager for the Mustang brand. Effective immediately, Kulman will oversee every aspect of bringing new seat designs to the market, the company said.

“Matt is absolutely the perfect person for this new position,” said Mustang’s vice president and general manager, Mike Panasci. “He has been an integral part of both the sales and technical sides of Mustang for more than 20 years.”

This extensive experience has given him a depth of knowledge and unique insight into the industry, the company noted.

“Matt’s new role will have a significant and positive impact on the Mustang Brand,” Panasci added.

Kulman (shown here) will continue to serve as Mustang’s technical adviser, but his responsibilities will expand to oversee all processes and communication between the design, manufacturing, sales and marketing teams. His role is to ensure the seamless release of new products as well as monitoring all existing products, the company said.

The creation of this new position coincides with Mustang’s physical expansion of its R&D department in Three Rivers, Mass., factory. "This growth has Mustang on the lookout for additional world-class designers to address the exciting new strategic expansion of the Mustang seat line," the company said.
