Paul Turner is the new Chairman of the Motorcycle Action Group following the group’s 37th Annual Group Conference that was held this year in Darlington.
The post became vacant after former Chairman Jane Chisholm stood down after three years in the position.
President Ian Mutch said: ‘Jane has made enormous effort and great personal sacrifice over three years and been very successful during a time of dramatic transition for the organization. I am reassured that we are retaining Jane’s services as a board member and delighted that Paul, himself a board member, has stepped into the hot seat.
Paul, 50, a former police officer and Pan European rider from Cumbria has recently retired from the force and has the enthusiasm, energy and very importantly, the time that running the nation’s leading rider group demands.
Speaking of his appointment Paul said, ‘I’m excited by the challenges of this new role in my life. MAG is a dynamic organization that is more relevant than ever to the future of motorcycling. I intend to build on the work of my predecessors and help steer MAG to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world. There is some scary stuff ahead but MAG has the connections, the experience and the determination to face those threats and protect the interests of all riders. MAG has been through a lot of internal changes lately and I find myself at the helm of a ship that has been thoroughly refitted and is ready for its most ambitious voyage. We are looking to all who ride to come aboard.’
