Fran Millar has been appointed chief executive officer of Team Ineos, The Telegraph understands. The move was announced to partners and staff on Wednesday. Millar, whose previous role was Director of Business Operations, has been with the team since its inception in 2009 having been approached by Sir Dave Brailsford to help set up Team Sky. She oversaw all off-bike activities, including staff personal development as Head of Winning Behaviours. Her brother is the retired professional rider David Millar. Millar’s appointment is the latest tweak to senior management since Sky Plc decided to quit at the end of last year and Team Sky was taken over by British petrochemicals giant Ineos. Rod Ellingworth, another original member of Team Sky, is currently on gardening leave and will join Bahrain-Merida later this year. After a 10-year partnership, Sky Plc announced its intention to quit professional cycling at the end of 2018, precipitating a search for a new backer. Ineos, owned by Britain’s wealthiest man, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, has since became sole owner of Tour Racing Limited, the holding company which holds the team’s licence.
