Bicycle Colorado has appointed Peter Piccolo as its executive director, succeeding long-time executive director Dan Grunig, who resigned at the end of 2017. Peter will be responsible for strategic planning, staff leadership and implementing initiatives and policies to advance Bicycle Colorado’s mission: Encouraging and promoting bicycling, increasing safety, improving conditions and providing a voice for bicyclists in Colorado.
“Peter’s vision for the organization, his entrepreneurial expertise, his strategic leadership skills and his successful organizational management background make him ideally suited to take Bicycle Colorado to its next level of growth,” said Ella Lyons, Bicycle Colorado’s board president. “We are excited to work with Peter to help us achieve our goal to make Colorado the nation’s most bicycle friendly state.”
A theme through most of Peter’s life has been a love of riding bikes for both recreation and transportation, and these traits are now a big part of his family’s lifestyle. “Bicycling has helped me and my family live healthier and happier lives, and I believe it can do the same for other people, families and communities across Colorado,” said Peter.
Peter will join the organization in early February, 2018.
