Mark HottonCycling Southland has appointed a new general manager.

Mark Hotton will join Cycling Southland in November, taking over from Brian Broad who has been in an acting general manager role in recent months.

Hotton joins Cycling Southland from The Southland Times, where he has held a senior leadership role since 2012.

He has held several management roles throughout his career in various media organisations.

A born-and-bred Southlander, Hotton left to study at the University of Otago before embarking on a career in journalism, working on newspapers and magazines in both New Zealand and London.

He returned to Southland in 2009 with his wife, Suzanne, and they have since had two children.

Hotton said his involvement in cycling has been at an amateur level.

He has competed in three Corporate Cycling challenges with The Southland Times team, endurance mountain biking events and other mountain biking races throughout Southland.

"I'm excited about the role and the challenges to be faced, but I am looking forward to building positive and valuable relationships with staff, key stakeholders, cyclists of all abilities and the countless volunteers that help make Cycling Southland such an impressive organisation."

Cycling Southland president Lindsay Jordan thanked Broad for his time in the role.

"The organisation continues to grow and evolve and the number of new junior riders coming on board recently is at an all-time high. We look forward to having Mark on the team to help nurture the growth of our exciting sport and world-class facility."
