Board Of Directors

 

Lee Brentzell – Chair

  

Competitive sport and outdoor adventures are integral to Lee and her family’s lives and they have been fortunate to ride their mountain bikes and run in some spectacular locations around the world where they lived and worked for many years.

She has been impressed with the quality and accessibility of trails, races, clubs and development courses in Australia since returning in 2010 and is excited to share her passion for the outdoors with her young daughters who love mountain biking but have not taken up trail running just yet.

When not conquering big mountains, Lee is a business strategist and transformational change leader in the Mining, Oil and Gas industry with twenty years experience in senior executive and project management roles working across all aspects of business from the development and execution of corporate strategies, new business setup, acquisitions and divestments, systems implementations and operational improvements. She loves a challenge but at the same time is a natural, people orientated leader with the ability to deliver large-scale business changes to maximise employee engagement and people performance that result in successful business transformations and desired benefits.

Lee has qualifications in civil engineering, a masters in business administration, new venture leadership, and is an Advance Queensland Digital Community Champion. She Chairs a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineer, Arts and Mathletics) Sub Committee at her local primary school and is strong advocate to boost female numbers in technical fields of work and sport through positive role modeling and collaboration with industry leaders, local communities and primary schools.

Lachlan started mountain biking around the bush tracks of Bendigo 15 years ago and has been hooked ever since. While the bikes may have been updated, the passion for the sport is as high as it’s ever been.

While the roadie and CX have places in the shed, marathon MTB style racing is where Lachlan’s heart is with him being a regular on the XCM scene.  Lachlan also completed his first 24hour solo race in 2016 and has plans to compete in more.

Away from the trails, Lachlan is a chartered accountant with a commercially focused background and is currently the CFO of Ladbrokes Australia.  He is keen work to accelerate the profile of mountain biking by continuing to promote & develop the sport, from grassroots through to the elite.

Tony Scott – Director

Tony holds a PhD in Chemistry (UNE) and until early 2004 held a position at the Research School of Chemistry (ANU) first as a PostDoctoral Fellow and then as the Research Officer in the Quantum Chemistry group. Tony remains connected to his science basis by being very interested in how we can engage, enthuse and encourage children (and adults) on STEM/STEAM.

His recreational and competitive pursuits in mountain biking took hold during his time in Canberra. He has been the president of the Canberra Off Road Cyclists and chair of Cycling Australia’s National MTB Commission in the lead up to him being instrumental in the formation of Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) in late 1999 as a splinter Peak Body away from Cycling Australia.  He was MTBA’s foundation President and later took  up the role of inaugural CEO for MTBA in 2004. 

 
One of the platforms for the formation of MTBA was the establishment of a vocal and very active MTB advocacy movement, a role that he has a continuing passion for.
 
Tony remains committed to the self-determination of MTB, an important factor in the formation of MTBA, and being able to be seen as a key part in the bigger picture of Australian cycling to funding agencies and to Government.
He continues to be involved in the sport and recreational pursuit of MTB and was elected as a director in 2018.
