House of Fraser boss Frank Slevin has been appointed as British Cycling's new independent chairman, the national governing body has announced.

Slevin, who will continue to be the retail giant's executive chair, replaces Jonathan Browning, who chose not to stand for re-election last year.

Browning's decision followed a bruising 18 months for the Manchester-based organisation after it was the subject of bullying allegations and an UK Anti-Doping investigation.

Those crises have led to a significant overhaul in personnel at British Cycling, which has appointed a new chief executive, performance director, head of medicine and several new coaches and directors in the last 12 months.

Salzwedel left British Cycling’s National Cycling Centre in Manchester in October, with his departure made official on Tuesday.

One of the 54-year-old's former jobs was with British Cycling's main sponsor HSBC in the United States and Asia but he has also held senior roles with retailers Brookstone and Hamleys.

A keen amateur cyclist, Slevin told reporters in Manchester that he started as a mountain biker but now enjoys road cycling and watched last year's Tour de France when it passed near his holiday home in the Dordogne.

Slevin's role at British Cycling will be part-time and unpaid.

British Cycling chief executive Julie Harrington said: "We are thrilled to be able to confirm the recruitment of Frank - his background and the insight and experience he will bring from beyond the world of sport will be an enormous asset as British Cycling looks to a future where our country can truly count itself as a great cycling nation."
