InTandem Executive Director

The InTandem Cycling Board is excited to announce the appointment of Matthew Nidek as InTandem’s first full-time Executive Director. 


Matthew brings more than 13 years of not-for-profit experience in operations, program management and fundraising and a Master's Degree in Public Administration.  He also has been a volunteer captain and team leader with InTandem since he relocated to New York City earlier this year.


As you know, we began a nationwide search in the Spring and received applications from many diverse and highly qualified, seasoned not-for-profit professionals with impressive backgrounds and experiences.  We are confident that this competitive search landed the best candidate for the role in Matthew.


Matthew’s training and previous experience is extensive. He holds a BA from Syracuse University and received his MPA from Georgia State University.  He also has completed post graduate work in public policy at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.


Matthew's professional work includes leadership roles in programs, operations and finance for Friendship Force International and various community development and funding advisor roles in the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs. Matthew’s most significant accomplishments have included helping numerous not-for-profits maximize their fundraising capabilities, optimizing resources to improve mission delivery and streamlining operations to significantly reduce costs. Under Matthew’s leadership as the Executive Director of InTandem, we look forward to expanding our program offerings and outlining a greater long-term vision for our organization.


We are delighted to welcome Matthew to InTandem's Executive Director role and know that the entire InTandem community supports him as we endeavor to enhance our mission delivery, broaden our community, improve our communications and expand our fundraising efforts.   With Matthew’s leadership we expect InTandem to continue the legacy that Artie Elefant began. 


Again, please join me in welcoming Matthew to his new role as InTandem's Executive Director!
