New CEO for

Old Bike Australasia - - • MA NEW CEO • MOTO EXPO • DUCATI SUPERSPORT • -

Af­ter six months as Act­ing CEO of Mo­tor­cy­cling Aus­tralia, Peter Doyle has been ap­pointed full time to the role. The son of mo­tor­cy­cling doyen Neville Doyle, Peter has had a wide and var­ied ca­reer, in­clud­ing the man­age­ment of Grand Prix teams, plus 14 years coach­ing and man­ag­ing teams in the USA. Act­ing MA Pres­i­dent Peter God­dard said he and the MA Board were very pleased to for­malise Mr Doyle’s po­si­tion at the head of the or­gan­i­sa­tion. “Mr Doyle’s ex­pe­ri­ence across the sport and in­dus­try are sec­ond to none and we are all very for­tu­nate to have him on the han­dle­bars of Mo­tor­cy­cling Aus­tralia to guide our pas­sion, sport and its con­trol­ling bod­ies into a new era,” he said. Peter Doyle said that MA had made some good progress over re­cent months but plenty re­mained to be ac­com­plished. “There have been a lot of changes – to the Board, staff and our re­la­tion­ship with the State bod­ies – all of which were long over­due. Mo­tor­cy­cling in this coun­try has some way to go be­fore we reach the lev­els of pro­fes­sion­al­ism that other sports en­joy, but I am con­fi­dent that we are on the path now to achieve that goal. I would like to thank the in­dus­try for their sup­port in this de­ci­sion and for their pa­tience in re­cent months. The great thing is that we are all ex­tremely pas­sion­ate, so we are all striv­ing for the same goal – to pro­mote the sport we love.” Mr Doyle said the fo­cus of the next few months would be around in­sur­ance, gov­er­nance and communicat­ion.
