Previous to this appointment Paul was CEO of Mentor, a charity which works in schools on drug and alcohol prevention and has had a very successful career in the NGO sector raising money, advising governments and running programmes.
Paul has worked in the charity sector since 1984 and has led charities as a CEO since 2004, largely as a change management specialist focusing on building brands, fundraising and income generation.
Cycling has not just been a part of my life, it’s changed my life. To ride to work now as the CEO of The national cycling charity is a tremendous responsibility and dream come true.
Paul Tuohy, Cycling UK Chief Executive
Cycling UK members will be pleased to know that like many of us, Paul has a life long passion for cycling. Having grown up in the notorious Doddington Estate in Battersea he admits that early involvement with St Christopher’s Catholic Cycling Club, particularly the mentoring and friendship from the mainly older clubmen and women gave him huge aspiration and motivation for doing something positive with his life.
Cycling of all descriptions factor into Paul's activities including weekend rides with his wife Wendy, commuting, club runs with Catford.cc, audaxes and Sunday racing.
Paul believes Cycling UK to be the champion organisation for the regular cyclist; ordinary people who want to enjoy riding their bike for work or pleasure.
