BOULDER, CO (BRAIN)—Bruno Maier, who joined the Bikes Belong staff in June 2009 as membership and development director, has been promoted to vice president. Maier will continue to direct Bikes Belong Coalition and Bikes Belong Foundation membership and fundraising programs, provide marketing guidance, and help lead the organization's growing staff.
"Bruno's been doing great all-around work," said Bikes Belong CEO Tim Blumenthal. "He's improved communication with all our members and enlisted many new supporters. He's taken a leadership role in working with our entire staff. More than anything, he's applying his 15 years of bike business experience to make Bikes Belong more effective and focused."
Maier joined Bikes Belong after many years as a top executive at Pacific Cycle and Cycling Sports Group, where he provided senior management expertise for the Cannondale, Schwinn, GT and Mongoose brands. He was most recently executive vice president of marketing at CSG.
Maier began his work in the bike industry at his family's bike shop in Ohio. He later worked for the Huffy Corporation and Brunswick Bicycles before joining Pacific/CSG in Madison, Wisconsin, in 2001.
