M.A. and CEO part ways – Peter Doyle acting CEO

Motorcycling Australia have released a statement announcing that CEO David Cottee has left the organisation.

Cottee took up the role in December, thus had barely completed four months in the role.

Cottee joined Motorcycling Australia after Jeremy Kann was appointed interim CEO in September, 2015.

Kann was put in the role after Dale Gilson separated from Motorcycling Australia after 15 months in the role.

Gilson had replaced long time incumbent David White in the middle of 2014.

Peter Doyle has now been appointed to the position of interim CEO.
