Steve Deli, the owner of Orlando Harley-Davidson®, is a "savior" of Harley-Davidson®: as an investment banker, he saved the company from bankruptcy in the late 1980s, and then led Harley's® IPO (initial public offering). Not resting on his laurels, he started Harley-Davidson® Financial Services and led it until he purchased Orlando Harley-Davidson® in 2000. He is praised in the famous book of Harley-Davidson's® turnaround, Well Made in America, and is featured on the Discovery Channel and at the Harley-Davidson® Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Anne Deli is no stranger to Harley® either. She grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin next to Bill Harley, son of the founder, who took her on rides in the sidecar of his motorcycles (She called him "Shaggy Dog" because of his long, bushy sideburns). She went on to help define the Harley® brand of today, as Vice President and head of Global Marketing at Harley-Davidson® Motor Company.
Orlando Harley-Davidson® has grown exponentially under the leadership of Steve and Anne Deli to be one of the largest and most successful dealerships in the world. They also own Laconia Harley-Davidson® in the home to the oldest Motorcycle Rally in America - Laconia Motorcycle Week. Working with the local dealers, Steve and Anne have opened, and own and operate almost one dozen Harley-Davidson® merchandise stores across the country. They are dedicated to the Harley-Davidson® brand, as is the customer base who ride Harleys® or dream about riding Harleys®.
