Our Trustees are a diverse group people with shared values around achieving social impact using the bike as a mean of transport.

We believe that, in the long term, having a diverse and inclusive board makes for better discussion, better decision making, and better organisational impact.

It also better reflects the people, businesses and communities that we support.

We encourage applications from those typically underrepresented on boards and from those who feel that they can bring additional and alternative experiences and perspectives. We are not recruiting but please feel free to drop Greg an email and he’ll get in touch when we’re ready.

Please contact Greg, our Cycling Enthusiast Officer (CEO), on Greg@bikeforgood.org.uk if you have any questions about our Board.

Self Employed in Travel & Tourism

Kenny joined the Bike For Good team in 2017, looking for a new challenge after 27 years working in various finance roles in the drinks industry. With good experience of working on corporate Boards and as a trustee for a number of company pension schemes, Kenny was interested in making use of some of those skills in a positive way, via a social enterprise.   

Bike for Good fitted the bill perfectly.  A local Glasgow enterprise with big aspirations for making a difference to both the quality of peoples lives and our environment, with cycling at its very core!. 

A keen cyclist, Kenny has left the corporate career behind in favour of focussing on developing travel and tourism businesses that will feature the bike in some shape or form!

Self- employed in service design and digital

Having attended a number of Digital Trustees Scotland match-making events, Sam was been waiting for the right opportunity to bring her service design and digital skills to a Trustee role. As a very active cyclist, Bike for Good made the most sense to combine a passion with contributing to a great social enterprise.

Sam is passionate about helping organisations understand that great customer experiences means designing services that start with the people who are using them, and the only way to do this, is to design with them, not for them.

Having spent the last 5 years working in digital transformation projects across the public sector, Sam also brings this knowledge and experience to Bike for Good.

In her spare time, Sam lives in Stirling with her 2 cats, partner and quite a few bikes. She loves to travel, and always with a bike involved.
