Local Motion is excited to announce the appointment of Christina Erickson as its new Executive Director.
Erickson comes to Local Motion following a thirteen-year tenure at Champlain College. Most recently, Erickson served as the Director of Service & Sustainability, a role in which she directed campus sustainability projects, along with a service-learning program aligned with UN Sustainable Development and campus sustainability goals.
Erickson will oversee the execution of Local Motion’s newly completed 5-year Strategic Plan, which is focused on making it safe, accessible, and fun for everyone to bike, walk, and roll in Vermont. Erickson’s community-centered approach to building a sustainable society is aligned with Local Motion’s collaborative approach to promoting walking, biking, and rolling. Having served on Burlington’s Walk/Bike Council, and as a frequent bike commuter and longtime Local Motion supporter, Erickson also comes to the organization with significant experience with walk/bike issues.
"We are so happy to have Christina on board to lead our organization,” said Katie Langrock, President of Local Motion’s Board of Directors. “She brings enthusiasm, experience, and a fresh perspective to Local Motion. We feel lucky to have her and look forward to continuing to flourish as an organization under Christina’s leadership.”
"I'm humbled and honored to lead a highly engaged team who use a local approach to global issues," said Erickson.
Erickson will begin her tenure as Executive Director of Local Motion on January 1st, 2023.
