Dave Andreychuk was nominated and confirmed as Bike/Walk Tampa Bay’s advisory board chair in October 2020. He is the second person to fill this position, following Mayor Jane Castor, who served as the inaugural Chair from 2015-2019, before being elected mayor of the City of Tampa in 2019.
Mr. Andreychuk is a former National Hockey League professional player who wrapped up his accomplished career with the Tampa Bay Lightning, earning his place in the Hockey Hall of Fame. He currently serves as the Lightning’s vice president of corporate & community affairs. In 2007, he founded the Dave Andreychuk Foundation to assist children in need.
“Everything that this group has done already has been incredible and I look forward to the year ahead of us,” said Mr. Andreychuk during his introduction at the BWTB Forum on December 3rd, 2020. He also conveyed his excitement about bringing more attention to safety for children and encouraging attendees to ride to future Lightning games once the pandemic is over.
Mayor Jane Castor officially welcomed Mr. Andreychuk by way of a prerecorded video at the Forum. BWTB is incredibly grateful for Mayor Castor’s past leadership and very excited about the next chapter of the coalition under Mr. Andreychuk’s leadership.
