Kenny Griffin started his lifelong affair with cycling as a junior racer, competing in races when he was just 9 years old. He continued to ride and race for years until he forged his mountain biking passion into a career.
In 2009, Kenny and his wife founded Chain Buster Productions, an event production company offering a variety of race events and series exclusively for mountain bikers and endurance athletes. Under Kenny’s leadership, Chain Buster became an industry leading event production and timing solutions company appealing to a wide range of racers and participants.
Prior to Chain Buster Productions, Kenny proved himself to be an excellent businessman, developing and managing operations for multiple companies, growing them into successful multi-state operations. Kenny is excited to bring his business development and operations management skills to NICA. He brings a unique perspective to the NICA team as an experienced student-rider, racer, and event promoter. He understands all the components required to build a successful event and deliver the experience to fulfill the vision of NICA’s 5 core principles.
In 2013, Kenny was instrumental in helping co-launch the Georgia Interscholastic Cycling League. He has helped grow the league to over 54 teams and an over 850 student athletes in 2018. Kenny’s passion for cycling is unwavering and he wants to instill the same love for cycling he grew up with in today’s youth. “Our youth deserve the opportunity to learn about and participate in our programs.”
When he’s not running an event, or riding a bike, he can be found paddle boarding or lounging around a lake with his wife Nicole, son Lanier, and daughter Olivia.
