NICA appoints new director

Published August 3, 2012

BERKELEY, CA (BRAIN)The National Interscholastic Cycling Association, the organization governing high school mountain biking, has named Doug Selee as its new executive director.

Founded in 2009, the NICA develops high school mountain biking programs for student-athletes across the United States and helps local leagues produce quality mountain bike events.

“We’re delighted to have Doug join the NICA family,” said NICA President, Rick Spittler. “His proven ability to lead national organizations… and his personal passion for cycling and NICA’s youth development mission is the perfect recipe to direct NICA towards its goal of making mountain biking a mainstream high school sport.”

Previously, Selee served as the vice president of operations at the American Cancer Society and founded his own consulting firm, Shifting Gears. Selee holds an MBA in Global Innovation from California State University.

Cycling, both road and mountain, is a major part of Selee’s life. The dedicated rider recently returned from a three-week journey to Asia where he cycled along the Great Wall of China.

“I love cycling and fitness, and this opportunity allows me to combine my passions while helping high school students build strong minds, bodies and character through mountain biking,” said Selee. “I look forward to applying all I’ve learned throughout my career to benefit NICA’s student-athletes.”
