Peloton Sports member Kate Olgers has been appointed as a director of Cycling NSW.
Olgers was appointed by the elected directors at a board meeting last week. She was successful out of the nine candidates who submitted an expression of interest for the position.
Olgers is a legal, risk and corporate governance professional. She brings over 25 years of experience in legal services, including as a partner of international law firm Allens Arthur Robinson, co-founder of AdventBalance Lawyers and General Counsel of major ASX-listed corporations.
She has been a member of executive business, risk and regulatory committees; an executive director of unlisted for-profit operating companies; and a member of the Group Executive of a top-20 ASX-listed company.
Olgers is an enthusiastic Masters road cyclist and has won multiple state and national championship medals in her age category.
Olgers fills the position vacated by Catherine Hooton earlier this year. She joins Matthew Bazzano, Craig Chapman, Greg Scott, David Stevens, James Vickers and Alison Hill as the current directors of Cycling NSW.
