YUBA TEAM

Who we are

Benjamin Sarrazin

Founder
Ben started Yuba Bicycles out of a shipping container in Northern California putting together steel-frame, long-tail blue Yuba Mundos.  Fourteen years later, supported by a whip-smart, passionate team in the U.S. and Europe, our aspirations are still the same: To better the planet by promoting the bicycle as an efficient transportation tool.

Pat Cunnane

President - COO
New to Yuba, but not the bike business Pat started in the industry sweeping floors in his local bike shop when he was 12. He has enjoyed riding and traveling the world.  Pat is active in bicycle advocacy in his hometown of Philadelphia and internationally through his involvement with People for Bikes and other advocacy organizations.
Pat rides alone, with his family and now with all three of his grandchildren on a Yuba Spicy Curry.

Sven Setzer

Marketing Manager
Sven is excited to spread the word about all things cargo bikes as Yuba’s Marketing Manager. Originally from the car country Germany, Sven has never owned a car and gets around on two wheels at all times. When not riding his road bike around Southern California, he enjoys Yuba’s Electric Mundo to find the best street tacos in town.

Kristi Shirley

Customer Service
Kristi is excited to be working with the Yuba team in her native home county of Sonoma while helping Yuba fans from all over the country. In her free time, Kristi loves exploring the town on late-night bike rides. More than anything, she is looking forward to trading in her car for a Boda Boda to get her to and from Yuba HQ.

Marc Azevedo

Operations
A long-timer in the Yuba world, Marc spends his days making sure everything runs smoothly at our HQ in California. Marc’s favorite things about working at Yuba include all the opportunities to meet, learn from and ride with people from all facets of the bicycling world across multiple continents – from casual riders to those who have spent their lives promoting and advocating cycling. A Sonoma County native, Marc enjoys introducing his daughter and son to the local sights and activities on their Mundo.
