PICKERINGTON, Ohio — Greg Pecoraro has joined the American Motorcyclist Association as its Director of Government Relations and will be working in the organization's Washington, D.C., office.
Pecoraro will be responsible for fostering working relationships with the legislative and administrative law and regulatory personnel in government to advance the motorcycle lifestyle. He also will serve as a resource for government entities and AMA membership regarding motorcycle-related issues.
"We are happy to welcome Greg aboard," said AMA Vice President of Government Relations Wayne Allard. "We expect him to contribute immediately on the issues of importance to AMA members, such as higher ethanol content in our fuel, the effects of automated vehicles on motorcycling and protecting and expanding access to public lands."
Pecoraro has more than 15 years leading, developing and executing legislative and regulatory strategies in the public and private sectors. His experience includes nine years as a government relations executive for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, as well as serving as Maryland's Assistant Secretary of Transportation.
"I'm very excited to go to work for the AMA," Pecoraro said. "I believe that my many years of experience in transportation policy and advocacy will add to a great Government Relations team focused on advancing our member's interests across the country and here in Washington."
Pecoraro said his priority in his new position is assisting "the AMA team in protecting motorcyclists across the nation and increasing their opportunities to compete, ride for pleasure, business, or just to get around."
