Alumni Spotlight: Derek Bouchard-Hall named CEO of USA Cycling and Alex Friedman launches LOLA

Derek Bouchard-Hall

Derek Bouchard-Hall, an IGS alum, has been chosen to serve as the next President and CEO of USA Cycling. Derek emerged as the top candidate for the role out of a pool of 47 qualified candidates thanks to his impressive combination of a racing pedigree and extensive business experience. As a former national criterium champion and a member of the 2000 Olympic track squad, Derek brings cycling credentials and deep industry knowledge to the role. However, the USA Cycling Chairman, Bob Stapleton, told VeloNews.com: “While his breadth and depth of knowledge around the sport is a fortunate plus, we hired him fundamentally for his business background- for what’s he’s done since he left cycling.”
