London Cycling Campaign CEO Dr Ashok Sinha has announced he will be leaving the organisation.
During his twelve years in charge, London Cycling Campaign has had some of its biggest successes, such as our Love London, Go Dutch campaign, which was instrumental in persuading former Mayor Boris Johnson to adopt a Dutch style approach to cycling infrastructure, including the £100 million Mini-Hollands programme. Other highlights include winning better driver vision in HGVs, mass expansion of the cycling network by the current Mayor Sadiq Khan, and borough-specific zero carbon roads commitments from almost half of all London councils.
Speaking of his departure, Ashok said:
“I’m leaving LCC with tremendous sadness. It’s a unique and wonderful organisation, and I am proud of the many successes all of us in LCC have achieved together. I shall miss everyone hugely.
“I’d like to pay tribute to the outstanding team here at LCC, the many trustees I have worked with, and LCC’s fantastic activists and supporters. Whoever leads LCC next will have a superb platform on which to achieve even greater campaigning success in future.”
Responding to the news of Ashok’s departure, the Chair of the board of trustees, Eilidh Murray said:
“On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Ashok for his leadership and strategic vision over the past 12 years. Many of us have only ever known the London Cycling Campaign with him as CEO. We will miss his astute linking of active travel with his passionate advocacy on climate-related issues and his wisdom in navigating our path with London’s decision-makers and other stakeholders. He has a great opportunity ahead of him at Ashden to continue to make the world a greener, cleaner place and we wish him every success.”
Regarding the recruitment of a new CEO of London Cycling Campaign, Eilidh added:
“We will imminently begin the process of seeking our next CEO to champion the many benefits which cycling brings to Londoners, and to deliver further impactful campaigns for faster, deeper action by London’s leaders. All those interested in taking up this highly rewarding but challenging role, please watch this space.”
