Our Team

Whalen PowerSports is fortunate to have the best team of motorcycle enthusiasts in SW Florida. Along with our top quality product, this is what separates us from the rest.


Jared Whalen - Founder

A serial entrepreneur and motorcycle rider of 20 years, Jared started Whalen PowerSports in 2014 with 1 motorcycle in his garage. He bought and sold a 2004 Honda Shadow, made a modest profit and the rest is history. What started out as a very part-time side business quickly turned into a full-time passion. In just 2 short years the business has seen explosive growth. Jared attributes this to two basic things - First, he personally hand picks every single motorcycle we sell and he always will. None of our bikes are bought in bulk at dealer auctions. Aside from the trades we take in, our entire inventory is bought from private sellers. Second, every person that works at Whalen is a rider. Whomever you deal with here, they have a passion for riding and for this industry.


Kyle Sutton - General Manager

Wearing multiple hats at Whalen, Kyle oversees the Service Department, handles our Social Media, educates our awesome customers on the various bikes we offer along with our huge selection of riding gear, and generally keeps everything running smoothly.


Brandon Bender - Administrative Asst.

Working in the office, Brandon ensures that our bike purchases and sales go smoothly. Handling the title-work and other important tasks, he keeps us in compliance with state law so we can continue doing what we love.


Zachary Gennette - Apparel Manager

A Registered Nurse, Zach works with us part-time handling all of our apparel. He ensures that we carry the latest in safety gear, while displaying it in a very appealing way inside our showroom. We have the largest selection in the area of name brand helmets, jackets and gloves.


Charlie Brown - Lead Technician

A graduate of MMI in Orlando, Charlie cut his teeth as a tech at one of the largest Harley dealerships in the country before making the move over to Whalen. With a passion for sport bikes, you might see Charlie on his 23,000 mile BMW HP4 (pictured) which he uses as his commuter.


Brett DeGrasse - Lead Detailer

In charge of keeping all of our bikes looking showroom fresh, Brett does a great job. New customers to our dealership have asked us on countless occasions, "Do you guys sell any used bikes or only new?" We like that.
