Fran is Head of Winning Behaviours & Business Operations and one of the founding members of Team Sky
As a founding Member of Team Sky, Fran Millar is Head of Winning Behaviours and Head of all Operations. Basically she leads everything that occurs at Team Sky with the exception of the athletes actually riding the bike. Fran was listed in Management Todays Top Women under 35 to watch out for 2 years running until over the qualifying age and at the time commenting that she’d achieved beyond her wildest dreams.
At the age of 15 Fran Millar became engrossed with cycling and instead of going to University like many of her friends she went travelling for a year. When she returned Fran spent some time temping before she worked her way up at a digital printing company. Fran’s brother professional cyclist David Millar won the yellow jersey in the Tour de France in 2000 and it was then that Fran and her friend set up a business to manage David. Their consultancy, known as Face Partnership grew very fast and by 2006 they began to manage other talents as well sports events.
It was in 2007 that Fran was approached by Dave Brailsford, the Performance Director of the British cycling team to help him set up a pro British cycling team which Fran was eager to accept. The first step was finding some investment and it just so happened that Sky was on the hunt for a sports team.
From this Team Sky was born and from its successes has had a remarkable influence on British cycling, Millar has made cycling trendy.
