Bike Easy Executive Director Resigns

Wednesday, Oct 30, 2013

Friends of Bike Easy:

After three years of dedicated service, I will be resigning from the position of Executive Director at Bike Easy, effective November 26, 2013.

Bike Easy is about a movement of all people who ride bikes. Three years on, we have found that together, we are stronger in our advocacy efforts to make the streets safer for everyone. It’s about you, our members, volunteers and political supporters. And while I will no longer be the champion of the cause at Bike Easy, a new champion will emerge.

The job description for the position is on this page, and I encourage all qualified parties to apply by November 24, 2013.

I am proud to report that I will be staying in New Orleans to become the first Executive Director at the Energy Wise Alliance. This new nonprofit will help me continue to enhance the well-being of Louisianans by build a lasting energy efficiency movement for the state.

In looking back over my three years at Bike Easy, our fledgling organization has spearheaded a movement and grown into a force to be considered and a partner to get things accomplished. We are a friend to those seeking transparent government, accountable project management and adherence to national guidelines.

In Bike Easy’s work in 2014, the new Executive Director will need your help to grow our now 60+ mile bicycle network, increase accessibility at bridges and choke-points, bring bicycle share to the City and educate the next generation of bicyclists in the region.

Bike Easy will continue to succeed because this movement has always been about you, the everyday bicycle rider. Keep on riding, and one day, New Orleans will be the best bicycle city in America.

All the very best,

Jamie Wine, Executive Director
