Position: Modeshift STARS Business Specialist
Initially a professional racing cyclist since hanging up my wheels I have launched and developed my own cycle coaching company and had the pleasure to work for several organisations in the delivery of sustainable and active transport projects. In separate project management roles at Cycling UK (the National Cycling Charity) my initial experience of leading behaviour change within communities and workplaces came from the development and delivery of the Big Bike Revival and Cycle for Health programmes, funded by the Department for Transport.
Leaving Cycling UK to work on a broader range of transport projects, I have moved on in the following years to manage the Travel Plan Network – Business Support Team at the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and develop a wide range of sustainable transport strategies for multi-national clients and multi-occupier organisations, along with engagement activities across several residential developments as a Principal Transport Consultant and TPS Transport Consultants Ltd.
Why did you join Team Modeshift?
I am passionate about creating opportunities for people to travel sustainably and develop a healthy, active lifestyle regardless of where they may live or work. Modeshift is a great organisation with a forward-thinking team dedicated to doing just that on a regular basis across several sectors and enables me to bring together the experience gained in several previous roles to deliver high impact projects with a range of different partners.
Outside of Modeshift:
I can still turn the pedals, a football fan supporting Huddersfield Town and enjoy getting stuck into all sports and outdoor activities. I am not great at sitting still and prefer being out in the open spaces of the Yorkshire Dales with my wife and young family whenever I get the chance.
