MILFORD, Iowa -- Cycle Country Accessories Corp., a leader in developing and manufacturing a variety of products for all-terrain vehicle, garden tractors, and golf carts, today announced that board member John S. Gault will serve as interim CEO.

John Gault has been a member of the Cycle Country board for more than a year. He had a 30-year career with Deere & Company and worked with several subsidiaries of the company before retiring as general manager of John Deere Harvester Works in October 2002. During his tenure, he was awarded the Manufacturing Excellence award from the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and his factory was selected as one of the 10 best in the United States in the application of new technology.

"We're excited to have John and his experience on board," said Jim Danbom, chairman of the Cycle Country board of directors. "The Board was dissatisfied with our return on invested capital and decided we needed a change to enhance shareholder value and growth going forward. John will hold the CEO position until a suitable candidate is found."

Cycle Country Accessories Corp., with more than 50 percent of the worldwide market in several product categories, is the industry leader in the design and manufacturing of custom-fitting accessories for virtually every brand of utility all-terrain vehicles. Cycle Country also produces accessories for the lawn and garden market through its subsidiary, Weekend Warrior, and makes high-performance oil filters for the motorsports industry through its wholly owned subsidiary, Perf-Form.

In April of 2005, Cycle Country acquired Simonsen Iron Works, now operating as Cycle Country, Spencer, providing metal fabrication.
