The French Cycling Federation FFC has created the new post of a General Director and the first to fill the role is Olivier Quéguiner. Current president David Lappartient wants to slip into a more political role, which is why the administrative post of General Director was created. Quéguiner will start on April 1, 2010.

Quéguiner is currently working for the International Olympic Committee in Switzerland, but has a wealth of cycling-related work experience. He was in the security department at the Amaury Sports Organisation (ASO, the Tour de France organizer) from 1995 to 2002, according to directvelo.com. From 2002 to 2008 he worked for the International Cycling Union, where he was among other things responsible for the World Championship organization, and the general regulations.

This is the second post in less than a month created by the FFC. Benjamin Maze was named the new performance director. The new structure within the FFC is due to a promise from Lappartient, who had that in his program in the 2009 elections.
