As you may have heard, the Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s (soon to be The Street Trust) mission has expanded and so has our team! We’ve added four new talented staff recently that we’d like to introduce you to.
Social Venture Partners Encore Fellows
The folks at Encore.org have organized a program where retired employees can donate 1,000 hours to a project at a non-profit organization. Lucky for us, the talented Intel retirees below have chosen the Bicycle Transportation Alliance as their non-profit!
Cory Cox, Strategic Review
As Director of Operations for a large group at Intel, Cory has a wealth of knowledge around organizational systems, hiring, goal setting, financial acumen and all the myriad details that go into running an organization. Cory’s projects with the BTA use this expertise and will challenge him to apply them in the non-profit context. With the mission change from BTA to The Street Trust, Cory will be facilitating the development of the overall strategic plan and helping with other operational projects to help us build the new organization.

Jay Gilbert, Washington County Advocate
With a deep understanding of cross organizational dynamics for multiple business groups at Intel as well as both an engineering and marketing academic background, Jay is applying his broad experiences and skills towards several important BTA initiatives. These include lending his skills to our Safe Routes to School and TV Highway Corridor Project initiatives. Jay will be a visible and vocal advocate helping move these programs forward.

Deb Pezzotti, Volunteer Program Design
As a senior program manager, Deb has spent years working with people to drive programs and projects through the various stages of the program’s life cycle. She’s well aware of the energy that comes from others who share the same passion. Through this experience, Deb is looking closely at BTA’s volunteer engagement program to develop a robust, more effective program that brings together the passions of staff, and enhances the support of BTA’s dedicated volunteers.
