CANADA – Peloton announces the appointment of Mike Wilson to the position of General Manager of Canada. Wilson will lead the development and execution of Peloton’s strategy in Canada, including operations, sales and piloting new go-to-market growth strategies in the market. He brings more than 20 years of sales, brand management, integrated marketing and digital experience to Peloton.
Previously, Wilson was the Canadian Country Manager at Waze and Head of Industry for the Restaurant vertical in North America. As the first Canadian employee at Waze, he built and grew the Canadian community and was responsible for partnering with some of the largest brands in the world through the Waze Ads consumer platform.

On joining Peloton, Wilson said, “Peloton has become part of the cultural conversation in Canada’s key urban hubs across the country. It is an incredible foundation to build on, as there is quite a bit of untapped potential to explore. The Peloton platform offers a fitness experience for all ages, levels, and walks of life, and I’m excited about the opportunity to increase awareness of the brand and continue to grow our membership base through a variety of new avenues.”
Peloton has been in the Canadian market since 2018.
