Published August 14, 2018

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Jennifer Harned, the president and general manager of Bell and Giro, and Justin Gottlieb, the vice president of Interbike, were recently elected to the PeopleForBikes Coalition board of directors. 

Harned has worked in the cycling industry since she joined Easton-Bell Sports in 2007. She previously held positions at Deloitte & Touche, Guitar Center, and THQ.

"I am excited to join with PFB to ensure more public access and to help build better bike infrastructure," said Harned. "We're passionate about the ride, and I know that PFB can help drive policies that support healthy living, thriving communities and stronger businesses."

Gottlieb's experience in the bike industry not only includes more than six years at Interbike (where he started in 2012 as director of communications and public relations) and also four years as a sales manager for American Bicycle Group, which then included Litespeed, Quintana Roo and Merlin.

"Interbike and PFB have maintained a mutually beneficial partnership for more than a decade," said Gottlieb. "PFB's work makes bicycling better for everyone and is crucial to the future of the industry. I truly look forward to joining the board."

The PeopleForBikes Coalition board now includes 17 bicycle industry leaders. Quality Bicycle Products founder Steve Flagg is the current board chair. The group's next face-to-face meeting is Nov. 28 in Boulder, Colorado.
