 Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA) announcement;

Tony Campbell is to become Chief Executive Officer of the Motorcycle Industry Association from September 2017

A spokesperson for the MCIA Board said; “Tony Campbell is an excellent choice to lead the MCIA and one which the Board of Directors are very excited about. Tony has extensive commercial experience in our industry both from a manufacturing and retail perspective and has an unparalleled understanding of the Association’s structure and focus. This was exemplified recently when he represented the industry at a Transport Select Committee hearing and stole the show, in putting forward the case for motorcycling for UK plc.”

Tony is currently Managing Director of Piaggio Ltd, where he has been in this position for nearly 13 years.

Sadly the MCIA announcement made no reference to the obviously departing CEO,  Steve Kenward.
