Statement: CEO Brian Facer to leave British Cycling


Brian Facer is to step down as British Cycling CEO with immediate effect, by mutual agreement with the Board of Directors.

The search for a new CEO has now commenced, with Cycling Delivery Director Danielle Every appointed as Acting CEO in the interim.

British Cycling Chair, Frank Slevin, said:

“We remain fully committed to the delivery of our ‘Lead our sport, inspire our communities’ strategy, as we continue our work to support and grow our sport and wider activities, and provide our Great Britain Cycling Team riders with the best possible platform for success.

“Our new CEO will join the organisation at an exciting time as we build towards next year’s inaugural UCI Cycling World Championships in Scotland, and the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2024.”

We restate our unwavering commitment to our commercial partners, including Shell UK.
