Are you a strong leader who has taken an organization to the next level? Do you share our love for bicycling and Los Angeles, separately and together: the freedom of two wheels and the complex and exciting reality of one of the world’s most vibrant urban regions? Do you believe that everyone -- of every race, income, gender, and nationality -- deserves the right to travel safely on our streets? Are you comfortable with the ins and outs of managing a growing and increasingly sophisticated not-for-profit organization, making sure that all the details are taken care of while keeping an eye for the big picture?
Being the Executive Director means that the buck stops with you: you’re the ultimate decisionmaker for our staff of nine.
