How Huck Cycles CEO intends to grow his Cornelius-based electric moped startup
Charlotte Business Journal | Full Article
A local veteran has transitioned his passion for mopeds into a full-fledged, growing business.
Brett McCoy, founder and CEO of Cornelius-based Huck Cycles, bought his first moped in 2019. He tried a couple of models, but found them to be too compact and cramped. That's when he decided to build one himself — previously working 12-hour days as a talent strategy executive at Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE: WFC) and then focusing on the moped in the evenings. McCoy published his progress on Instagram, which proved to be an unexpected avenue to his first sales.
