Norton signs on MV Agusta’s R&D guru

Getting the right minds into a revamped organisation is vital. And the new Norton management team has taken a big step forward by poaching Brian Gillen from MV Agusta.
Gillen has spent more than 15 years at MV Agusta in charge of R&D, and he also played a big part in the Italian company’s various efforts in Superbike and Supersport racing. BDN has met the American engineer at a few MV Agusta press launches over the years, and he’s an impressive character, combining in-depth technical knowledge with humour and charisma.

Working as the new chief technology officer at Norton, the firm says Gillen’s primary role will be to “drive the development of its premium motorcycle range and strengthen the company’s commitment to technological innovation and engineering excellence.”
