Jeff Aken selected as Cascade's new Advocacy Director
We are thrilled to announce that Jeff Aken has accepted the position of advocacy director at the Cascade Bicycle Club.
Jeff has been an integral part of Cascade since he joined as our principal planner in July 2013, and he has been serving as interim advocacy director since Thomas Goldstein resigned.
At Cascade and in his past work at Forterra and the University of Washington, Jeff has been working with planning staff from communities around the Puget Sound to advance policies and plans that create livable communities.
"There are great opportunities to make riding a bike more safe, comfortable and convenient in the next few years and I'm looking forward to working in close collaboration with our partners around the region to make the Puget Sound region an even more amazing place to ride," stated Jeff.
An effective advocate and passionate cyclist with years of experience building coalitions and managing teams, we couldn’t be more excited to have him contribute to Cascade in a leadership role.
Jeff will start in his new role September 1.
