Explore Bike Share Seeking Executive Director

PATRICK LANTRIP | MEMPHIS DAILY NEWS

Explore Bike Share, a 600-unit local bike sharing system, has begun the search for an executive director to spearhead the nonprofit’s efforts.

Scheduled to roll out by next spring, Explore Bike Share’s fleet will be the largest in the nation to feature the BCycle Dash navigation system.

“We are seeking an executive director to take on overall strategic and operational responsibility for planning, implementing and operating a new network in Memphis,” Jaske Goff, Explore Bike Share board hiring committee lead and Downtown Memphis Commission vice president of operations, said in a release.

After an exploratory effort by DCA, a creative communications consulting firm, the nonprofit was formally established in early 2016. The system will initially serve high-density areas like Downtown and Midtown, as well as South Memphis, Orange Mound and Binghampton.
