Just So You Know

The new board of Motorcycling Australia continues to clean house, and we can only applaud and cheer them on.

CEO Dale Gibson has departed to “pursue other interests” and the new Board “wishes him all the best”.

A caretaker CEO will be appointed immediately. This appointment will be announced shortly and the Board will now look to review the entire management structure.

In great news, Aussie motorcycle racing legend Peter Goddard is now also on the Board.

Peter is a World Endurance Champion, Australian Road Racing and multiple Dirt Track Champion as well as World Superbike and 500cc GP rider, and a great addition to MA.

“It’s an exciting time for MA. I haven’t been back in the country for too many years, but I have been in motorcycling all my life and it is a system that my whole motorcycling career came through,” Goddard said.

“My physical contact with the actual sport with many disciplines is probably the biggest thing that I add, as well as being an active club member and being on the Trials Committee, so I have some good experience.

“I am really excited to be a member on the new board – a diverse and well experience group all with a similar passion; I am really looking forward working together for the future of MA.”

Also new to the Board is Steve James.

Steve is a passionate rider and senior executive with over 25 years’ experience in the Australian Financial Services Industry and is looking forward to stepping into the role.

“I’m delighted to be part of the dynamic new Board at Motorcycling Australia and look forward to helping take our sport to a new level,” James said.

“Over the coming months I look forward to meeting and working with our various stake holders and especially the riders who we support at every level.”

So far, so bloody good, MA.

Keep it up.
