He will be reunited there with Matt McKerrow with whom he worked at triathlon Ireland before they both went their separate ways.
McKerrow came back to Ireland from New Zealand earlier this year and took over from Geoff Liffey as CEO of Cycling Ireland.
Graham has spent the last number of years as a senior sponsorship consultant with Teneo where he worked closely with Sport Ireland, Aer Lingus, Canterbury, the FAI, GAA, Camogie Association, the IRFU, Spar, Kingspan and VHI.
One element of the new role will be to take over the media relationships built up by Heather Boyle who left Cycling Ireland last year to join the Olympic Federation of Ireland.
Graham recently completed a diploma in Sports Law from the Law Society to add to a Degree in Marketing and Event Management from the Dublin Business School.
He is a dedicated Triathlete and was recently the 4th Irishman home in Ironman Cork.
“Cycling and the promotion of physical activity is a passion of mine, so I am very excited by the opportunity to help grow the sport in Ireland,” said Graham.
“Cycling is one of Ireland’s most popular participation sports and is recognised as one of three priority sports in the National Sports Policy. I believe there are huge opportunities for the development of cycling in Ireland across all disciplines and at all levels from commuter to leisure to elite. I’m really looking forward to getting started and working with volunteers and stakeholders across the sport.”
“Scott brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to this role,” added McKerrow.
“There are so many great stories and messages across the breadth of activity that occurs in the cycling community – and such a large part of promoting and developing the sport is getting these messages out there for all to hear. I’ve every confidence Scott will be a strong performer for the organisation.”
Scott Graham featured in the 2018 Sport for Business 30 Under 30 so his elevation to a senior role within sport is no surprise to us.
