Marshman steps down as LEVA executive director

Published December 16, 2014

FORT MYERS, Fla. (BRAIN) — After three years with the Light Electric Vehicle Association, including the past year as executive director, Heather Marshman announced she is resigning effective Friday.

"I have greatly appreciated the opportunity to work with our esteemed members and sponsors in this blossoming industry, and I plan to do whatever I can in the future to continue my support of light electric vehicles," Marshman said in a statement.

LEVA Chairman Ed Benjamin and the board have begun a search for a replacement. Benjamin said he would assume many of Marshman's duties in the interim.
Marshman has been a part of the e-bike industry since 1998, when she began working for Total EV, an early distributor of e-bikes and other electric vehicles. She also worked for WaveCrest Labs, another pioneering e-bike company.

She took over the top position in August 2013 after the death of former executive director Sid Kuropchak.

"Heather has done an outstanding job, during the difficult time of helping LEVA through the loss of co-founder Sid Kuropchak, and later building membership and expanding programs for LEVA," Benjamin said.
