Will Norman retained as London Walking and Cycling Commissioner

Now re-elected London Mayor Sadiq Khan has reappointed Walking and Cycling Commissioner Will Norman in a reshuffle that has seen a number of changes at City Hall.

One of six “special appointments”, Norman first became the capital’s active travel lead in December of 2016, picking up from Boris Johnson’s choice Andrew Gilligan. Prior to taking the role he was Global Partnerships Director at Nike where he was charged with increasing levels of physical activity and participation in sport.

Norman said this morning: “Absolutely delighted to be reappointed as London’s Walking & Cycling Commissioner. Looking forward to delivering for ⁦@SadiqKhan and his great new team at City Hall.”

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I am delighted to announce these key appointments to my top team. I look forward to working with them to deliver a better and brighter future for everyone who calls this amazing, diverse city home.

“I pledge to use this second term to do everything I can to build the bridges that bring us closer together and I will work tirelessly throughout the next three years with my team to deliver for all Londoners.”

Supporting the broader transport picture, Heidi Alexander becomes Deputy Mayor for Transport, while Shirley Rodrigues becomes Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy.
