Shapleigh has spent most of his career connected to the Giro brand, but left Vista Outdoor, Giro's current owner, in 2017 to join MIPS as a strategic adviser. Shapleigh's consulting contract with MIPS expired in June and he recently told the company he would step down from the board because of a potential conflict of interest with his new position in the industry. 

“Greg has, since he joined the Board of Directors of MIPS in 2018, been instrumental in providing important insights from the helmet industries and we thank him for his contribution and wish him all the best in his new challenge,” said Magnus Welander, the chairman of MIPS.
