Cycling Ireland has announced that Chief Executive Officer, Stuart Hallam, has retired from full-time work after his contract with the federation expired on March 31, 2005. Englishman Hallam joined Cycling Ireland as CEO in March 2003 on a fixed-term contract.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed the last two years and I hope that I have contributed to a growing and vibrant organisation," Hallam said. "I had planned to settle with my family in Ireland but a combination of education issues, elderly parents in England and the business interests of my wife have made those personal plans unworkable," he added.
Cycling Ireland President, Míceal Concannon commented, "Stuart’s time with us has coincided with a period of steady growth in the membership of Cycling Ireland. His greatest legacy may be the unravelling of the insurance questions that engaged many members over the last few years. This was difficult and tedious work but his efforts have generated a degree of clarity which will allow members and clubs to operate successfully."
Cycling Ireland is to announce his replacement shortly.
