The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) is looking for its next executive director.

The Boulder-based non-profit organization has retained the search firm T. Malouf & Company, Inc., to find a replacement for outgoing executive director Tim Blumenthal, who will become executive director of Bikes Belong in September.

With 32,000 members, 500 affiliated clubs and hundreds of corporate and retail members, IMBA is the world’s largest mountain-biking organization, dedicated to creating, preserving and enhancing trail opportunities for mountain bikers worldwide.

Blumenthal’s replacement must be “a compelling leader with a strong, proven background in general management,” said Terry Malouf, president and CEO of T. Malouf & Company. The position also demands public-speaking skills, an understanding of budgets in general and non-profit finances in particular, experience developing relationships with federal agencies and industry, and a willingness to travel.
