New Opportunity: Houston Bike Share

by Denise Smirth | Oct 02, 2020

Dear Friends, 

I continue to hope that all is well with you as many continue to be challenged by the uncertain times in which we are living.  In the spirit of continued community building, I want to share an exciting opportunity to impact our city by serving as the next Executive Director (ED) of  Houston Bike Share, the nonprofit operator of the Houston BCycle system.

Houston Bike Share (HBS) seeks a leader who is passionate about urban mobility to serve as its ED.   The ED will partner with the Board of Directors to provide leadership that ensures the delivery of equitable bike share services that foster recreation, mobility, and personal wellness.  We are looking for a strategic thinker who can visualize a future where bike share becomes more of an integral part of Houston’s transportation network, and someone who can respond to the unique needs of different communities across the city. 

The ED is responsible for simultaneously leading the operations, community relations, revenue development, marketing, and team management aspects of HBS.   The leader should be an exceptional communicator who understands advanced social equity models that build inclusive economic, cultural and innovative communities.   A top priority for this leader will be to utilize key data to make strategic decisions.  The ED directs a staff of more than 20+ people to help support the growth and expansion of Houston Bike Share.  From its start in 2012 with three stations and 18 bikes, HBS has grown to 113 stations and over 700 bikes and will be hoping to grow to 130+ stations and 1000+ bikes in the next year.  In addition, HBS is soon introducing E-Bikes.

You can read the full profile for the Executive Director here.  If you know someone who would be a good candidate for this position, please forward this email.  Interested candidates should apply here. Letters of interest will be received until October 26, 2020. 

Thanks in advance for your continued support in finding great leaders for organizations impacting our city!


Warm Regards,

Executive Search Consultant
