As Vice President of Operations, Carl Michelakos leads all operational aspects of The Bike Cooperative and CCA Sports Retail Services divisions. His responsibilities range from day-to-day operations, to working with partner companies to improve programs, to launching new programs and initiatives for member retailers.
Michelakos’ strong financial acumen and operational skillset ensures The Bike Cooperative and CCA Sports Retail Services divisions are fiscally sound and laser-focused on being a driving force that helps retailers thrive in their local markets.
A graduate of the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business, Michelakos comes to CCA Global Partners with several years of experience on the front lines working retail. Since joining CCA Global Partners in 2003 as a member services representative, Michelakos has grown through the ranks with hard work and determination. His passion for cycling and skiing has been valuable in understanding the needs of independent bike, winter sports, fitness, and outdoor retailers.
While at CCA, Michelakos has played a major role in the introduction of the Keep It Rolling Extended Protection Plan, the Freedom To Ride consumer financing program. Instrumental in the launches of The Bike Cooperative and CCA Sports Retail Services, Michelakos will continue identifying opportunities for both divisions to maximize their scale and efficiencies that enable independent active lifestyle retailers to prosper in an increasingly competitive landscape.
