British Cycling have appointed Andy Harrison as their new Programmes Director.
Harrison, who is the current Performance Operations Manager at the English Institute of Sport, will commence his new role in May and has been tasked with building on the successes of the last two Olympic cycles which have seen Britain win eight gold medals.
British Cycling Chief Executive Ian Drake said: "Andy Harrison's experience as a performance support and management expert for several major sporting bodies gives him a solid grounding for our new programmes director role.
"This is about creating a sustainable structure from which Britain can continue on its journey to become a cycling nation at all levels. It's going to be a challenge to ensure we can sustain the remarkable success that we've achieved so far.
"I'm confident that the addition of Andy to the team alongside Sir David Brailsford as performance director and Shane Sutton as head coach will give us the best possible chance of continued success."
