It is with bitter sweet feelings I share that Jeff Miller has decided to move on from the Alliance for Biking & Walking. You can read the announcement here.
Planet Bike has been a primary supporter of the Alliance for more than a decade. In that time, I have seen Jeff transform the Alliance. Prior to Jeff’s tenure, the Alliance struggled to communicate its mission, form partnerships and raise money. Six years later, Jeff leaves a healthy and secure organization with some of the strongest partnerships in the bicycle advocacy movement.
I am personally sad to see Jeff go because it means I will get less time with this generous and funny person.
But there is a sweet side. Jeff now has a family. As any parent knows, family changes one’s priorities and perspectives on life and career. And Jeff has personally grown enormously in his skills, capacity and network. Jeff is one of the most highly motivated and productive people I know. I have no doubt he’s on to bigger and better things and I can’t wait to see what he does next.
I blogged about Jeff’s arrival at the Alliance back in 2008. In case you missed it, I’ve included a glimpse of the famous lobster bike postcard from Jeff’s days in Maine.
