The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition welcomes Jeremy Hobbs as our new Technology Strategist. Jeremy, who joined the team in October 2018, brings 15 years of technology management and leadership expertise to the role, including experience serving as the CIO of the San Francisco Art Institute.
A SF Bicycle Coalition member since 2012, Jeremy loves to travel by bicycle and has ridden long distances on four continents. He holds a BFA in Art & Technology, Photography and Art History and a BA In Visual Critical Studies from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
When did you first hear about the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition?
Fortunately, I came across the SF Bicycle Coalition at one of our Bike-to-Work Day street party extravaganza stations. It was clear to me from that moment onward that the Bicycle Coalition was an amazing organization, bringing strong advocacy and programs to SF and the Bay.
What excites you most about your new role?
My goal is to make everyone’s work a little easier and more productive. I’m motivated to ensure that staff members have the tools they need to get the important work of the organization done effectively.
It’s great to be working at a place where the mission aligns with my values. I believe in promoting person-powered transportation, confronting transit’s environmental impact and climate issues broadly, ensuring the health and safety of street users and communities, and advocating for a new transit and infrastructure paradigm.
When you’re not working to advance technology at the SFBC, how do you like to spend your time?
I enjoy bikepacking, nature, the arts and many other pursuits related to adventures outdoors and of the intellect.
