The Canadian Cycling Association is pleased to welcome David Cathcart to its Board of Directors. David is an accomplished sales executive in the cycling industry and is currently the Vice President of Global Sales for Saris Cycling Group which specializes in racks, indoor trainers and power measurement products which are sold under the Saris, CycleOps and Graber brands.
Mr. Cathcart’s appointment to the CCA Board came about due to the resignation of a Board member after one year of his two year term. The by-laws of the association require the Board to fill the vacancy by appointment.
CCA President John Tolkamp was pleased that there were a number of very solid candidates who were willing to be considered for the appointment. “Through this exercise of calling on our cycling community to identify candidates for this Board appointment we have been pleased to learn of the willingness on the part of many top calibre people to serve the association. This speaks well for the future of the association and its governance”; said Tolkamp.
As the newest member to the Board, David is looking forward to an orientation and getting up to speed on the main areas of focus for the CCA Board and noted; “After many years watching the positive development of cycling in Canada, I'm excited and honoured to lend a hand by serving on the Board of the CCA".
The position is for the duration of the term concluding at the 2012 Annual General Meeting.
