Josh Philippi

General Manager

Josh started following us online many years ago. On an exploratory San Francisco visit he decided to just stop by with a resume. A risky move, but we were impressed. Thirty minutes later he was sitting down for an interview. A few months later he was an SF resident and Mission team member. It was not an ordinary situation, but Josh is an extraordinary guy.

Josh started riding BMX bikes in elementary school. Then as a teenager he began working with metal and went on to build his first bike in college - a Schwinn Stingray - to cruise the beaches of his Miami home in style. After graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering, and falling in love, he made the long journey west.

Josh is our former manager of production, turned General Manager of Mission Bicycle. His metalwork and engineering background make him a trusted consultant on fabrication and component design, while his optimism and attention to detail make him a great coworker and fearless leader.

Josh is the only Mission Bicycle staffer to swim with sharks and be the proud owner of a banana seat.
