The Coalition is pleased to welcome our new Executive Director! On February 1, Renee Rivera took the reins of the East Bay Bicycle Coalition.
Renee comes to the EBBC from a nine-month stint as the Acting Executive Director of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition where she filled in while Leah Shahum was on sabbatical. During her tenure at the SFBC, many great things were accomplished. We look forward to bringing her talents in bicycle advocacy, transportation policy, and fundraising to the East Bay.
Renee grew up in the Bay Area and has a background in non-profit financial management and administration. She has utilized that background during five years on the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Board of Directors where she was instrumental in creating a Strategic Plan for bicyclists in San Francisco.
Her position as our new Executive Director allows her to bring her management, financial, and administrative experiences to bear on her passion for bicyclists and bicycle advocacy.
Renee is a resident of East Oakland who enjoys bicycling not only the urban streets of Oakland, but also the terrific back roads of the East Bay. Shoot her an email to say hi (email@example.com) or look for her out on the road!
