Cycling Australia’s new CEO

by CyclingTips

Cycling Australia CEO Nick Green is leaving the organisation’s top job and will be replaced by Steven Drake.

Green joined CA in 2014 and improved its financial position while setting a new strategic vision, Strategy 2020, focused on the years leading up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Drake will take the CEO position immediately, while Green remains at CA for a short period to ensure a successful transition.
