Bikemore Announces Liz Cornish as Executive Director

After an extensive interview process that included both local and national candidates, Bikemore has named Liz Cornish executive director. She will begin in late May.

Liz Cornish is an experienced nonprofit leader and talented community outreach specialist who believes bikes have the ability to transform people's lives. Liz comes to Bikemore after serving as the first Women Bike Manager at the League of American Bicyclists.

Liz spent the first part of her career working in Outdoor Education. In 2009 she was hired by Outward Bound USA to build an urban experiential education program in Omaha, NE from the ground up. It was in this role that she began to see how cities designed for safer bicycling and walking could potentially address many of the challenges facing her underserved students and their families. She's been advocating for better biking ever since.

The hiring panel consisted of Bikemore Board Members and the Executive Director of Bike Maryland, Nate Evans.

Bike Maryland welcomes Liz Cornish as the executive director of Bikemore, our local partner in Baltimore. Liz’s experience in community bike initiatives will help accelerate Baltimore’s positive trends in bikeability. We look forward to working with Liz in the years to come.
— Nate Evans, Executive Director of Bike Maryland

Greg Hinchliffe, who served as interim executive director during the hiring process, will continue to serve Bikemore under Liz Cornish in an advocacy role and as a member of the Mayor's Bicycle Advisory Commission.

I’ve had the opportunity to meet Liz Cornish and am excited to work with her to make bicycling a safe and convenient transportation choice in Baltimore.
— Jon Laria, Chair of the Mayor's Bicycle Advisory Commission

Liz is relocating to Baltimore from Northern Virginia, and will be introduced to Bikemore's membership base at the annual Bikemore members' meeting May 12th.
