The Board of Bicycle New South Wales is pleased to announce the appointment of Alex Unwin as the new Chief Executive Officer of BNSW, the peak bicycling organisation in New South Wales.

Alex has unrivalled experience and understanding of the sector and his knowledge of BNSW is second to none, having previously served as CEO from 2005 to 2010. Alex will commence his term as CEO from February allowing BNSW to seamlessly move forward.

Welcoming Alex back into the fold the BNSW Board are delighted and excited that Alex has accepted the post of CEO at this important time for the organisation. We have a new President and newly configured Board which is fully committed to implementing our new strategy and direction to create a better environment for cycling in New South Wales”.

“Working with our staff and volunteers, most of whom are well known to him, Alex will be able to lead BNSW and work inclusively with the Board, our major stakeholders such as the Bicycle User Groups, state and local government and our sponsors to build on our recent successes and fulfil our new strategy.

“Alex has spent the past eighteen months traveling – on a bike mostly, which has given him fresh insights you don’t get when caught up in the hurly burly of running an organisation like BNSW. As anyone who has worked in the not for profit sector will attest, it is a challenging environment. We are delighted that Alex has returned to the fold, refreshed and rejuvenated to bring his vast experience and knowledge of cycling, the environment and transport to his role as our new CEO”.
