British Cycling appoints new independent chair - BikeBiz
British Cycling has appointed Frank Slevin to the role of independent chair.

The appointment follows changes to the constitution of British Cycling agreed by National Council at last summer’s Extraordinary General Meeting to ensure compliance with the code of sports governance and marks the beginning of a new era in the governance of the organisation.

Slevin, who joins British Cycling with wide-ranging experience including retail, financial services and regulatory oversight, said: “It is a great privilege to have been chosen to support the leadership team in British Cycling as we look to a new era for the sport and for every cyclist in the country.

“I bring a long-held passion for cycling, combined with a career that has been committed to helping organisations maintain high performance and manage change, whilst upholding the best standards of governance.

“I believe British Cycling is at a crossroads in terms of the standards of governance now expected, and in particular the way elite athletes are supported. At the same time, I want British Cycling to work with everyone across the sector, as we look to live up to our ambition to be a world-class governing body and a leading cycling nation.

“I have met with our CEO, Julie Harrington and I’m looking forward to working with her. One of my key priorities will be to give Julie the support she needs as she implements her plans to take British Cycling forward. I’m also very excited about our partnership with HSBC UK, who share our ambitions for the potential of cycling in this country from the playground to the podium.”

British Cycling CEO Julie Harrington added: “We are thrilled to be able to confirm the recruitment of Frank - his background and the insight and experience he will bring from beyond the world of sport will be an enormous asset as British Cycling looks to a future where our country can truly count itself as a great cycling nation.”
