In her role as Head of Business Operations, Fran Millar manages Team Sky's off-bike functions. These include the team's marketing and communications strategy, stakeholder management, and all the commercial and legal aspects that come with running the world's number one cycling team.
Fran has worked alongside Dave Brailsford since 2007, and after helping build Team Sky from the bottom up, has remained at the heart of the team since its inception in February 2009.
With older brother David entering his 15th season as a professional, Fran has not only grown up in cycling, but has an innate understanding of the sport that has helped her massively in her role.
She said: "Having worked in cycling since the age of 20, I always dreamt of being part of a British professional cycling team.
"When Dave approached me with the idea of building a team capable of putting a clean British rider on the top step of the podium on the Champs Elysees, It was an inspiring and ambitious enough project for me to leave my own business to help accomplish it.
"I'm immensely proud of what we've achieved in the time since then and look forward to being a part of the team's continued growth in the future."
