Brian Fong – Chief Financial Officer
Cycling has always been a large part of Brian’s life. He commutes to the Bicycle NSW office every day by bicycle and always loves to go out for a spin. Going for a spin has become more irregular since becoming a dad, but that’s perfectly fine because he loves being a dad and wouldn’t trade that for anything!
“Hey bun-san! Dada’s coming home soon! What’s that?
You’ve been chewing my cycling magazines? Good Boy!”
Brian’s role is to deal with all the financial aspects of Bicycle NSW, and like everyone at Bicycle NSW, anything else that gets thrown his way. Brian started as the treasurer of his local BUG and served for around 7 years before starting with Bicycle NSW in 2005. He loves being able to work for an organisation that is committed to something that he is passionate about. i.e. making cycling better!
