LMB is excited to welcome two new staff members as we gear up for 2019! Matt and Jason come to us with strong experience as both bicyclists and communicators. They’re a valuable addition to our team and have hit the ground running (or rolling) as we prepare our 2019 Ride Calendar, our Fall issue of Michigan Bicyclist magazine, and a new LMB website launch.

Communications Director: Matt Penniman

MattPenniman smMatt is a skilled writer and communicator. He’s also a seasoned bike rider and regular commuter, whose experience on two wheels is marked by an eagerness to explore. He started his career in the nonprofit world at Allen Neighborhood Center, later serving as a technology consultant with the Power of We Consortium, a communication strategist for MessageMakers, and a project administrator at MSU before coming to LMB. He loves to ride the Lansing River Trail, sing with a small early music group, and read sci-fi in his spare time. Matt lives with his wife Jill, daughters Vivian (7) and Cecilia (3), their cat Fancy, and five bicycles on the west side of Lansing. His preferred commuter bike is a Fuji Sagres.

Development Director: Jason Craner

JasonCraner smAfter more than 20 years on the radio, Jason started using his storytelling experience to create multimedia giving and membership campaigns for a non-profit network in West Michigan. In 2010, he was part of the Ride-for-Life team that raised awareness and nearly $50,000 in funding for Lakeshore Positive Options as they pedaled more than 1,100 miles from Holland, MI to Dallas, TX. Jason also joined LMB in 2017 as a rider on Shoreline West. When he’s not on his bike, you’ll find Jason with his wife Danielle, and three children: Amelia (13), Ian (10), and Seth (9).  Jason looks forward to sharing LMB’s story with you!
