A Message from Our Co-Founder and CEO, Jamie Gilson
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of my dear partner and friend, Derek Mithaug’s sudden and unexpected passing last month. Derek was a leader, visionary and a true pioneer in the field of electric mobility. We are still in shock over here at Corporate and I will be releasing more details as we know them.
I had the privilege of working closely with Derek over the past five years and he will be sorely missed. I am committed to continuing with our dream of Voltaire Cycles Franchise development and honoring Derek’s legacy as we continue to rapidly expand our franchises and good-will across North America and beyond. Derek was very excited about our recent work with establishing a European Division in the United Kingdom to begin offering Voltaire Cycles Franchises to our European communities and we continue with an unprecedented rate of inquiries and applications for Voltaire Cycles eMobility franchises from around the globe.
Derek will always be appreciated and missed as my Co-founder of this fabulous enterprise and a true leader in the field. My heart goes out to the Mithaug family and friends, as well as all of the great folks we have had the privilege of getting to know over the years.
We will carry the dream forward with gratitude, pride and Derek’s memory will be in all we do.
o purple finch please tell me why this summer world (and you and I who love so much to live) must die
