Peloton, the global FitnessTech disruptor behind products such as the Peloton Bike and Tread who IPO’d in 2019.
Propel started working with Peloton before the IPO and were lesser known internationally whilst they were expanding their global operations with a team in London. This would enable them to further launch & scale internationally.
Establishing new International offices is always has challenges; time zones, culture the obstacles are endless, yet it is imperative to get things right first time. Peloton came to Propel who have a reputation for scaling successful US business in the UK and Europe for a number of key hires across product, design and engineering.
