News: Brian Facer New CEO of British Cycling

Brian, who is a British Cycling member and rides with Daventry CC, will join from London Irish and take up the role early in the new year as replacement for Julie Harrington, who leaves in January 2020. Brian will arrive at British Cycling with a strong track record of commercial success throughout his career. As CEO of London Irish, he first steered the club through the challenges of relegation, then put the foundations in place for longer-term, sustainable success both on and off the field.

Brian has non-executive director experience across a number of national organisations, and is a keen cyclist himself, including participating in a number of significant mass-participation events such as L’Etape du Tour.

Brian said: “I’m delighted to be joining British Cycling as the organisation’s new Chief Executive. It is an exciting time for the whole cycling community across the country, where we are going into the postponed Olympic and Paralympic year, have had another British rider become a Grand Tour champion, and have seen the number of recreational cyclists increase dramatically during the last six months.

“I’ve been a very keen cyclist all of my life, ranging from bike rides with my family all the way through to mountain biking across the Alps and completing a number of Etapes du Tour, including Col du Tourmalet and Alpe d’Huez, so being offered the position of CEO of British Cycling is a dream come true. There are strong foundations throughout the organisation, from the volunteers who run clubs and events up and down the country all the way up to the world-class practitioners who support the athletes who bring home medals from the world championships, Olympics and Paralympics, and I will be working my hardest to take British Cycling onwards and upwards into the next few years.”
