WELCOME to A WORLD-FIRST BUSINESS COMMUNITY

ICE is an international C-Suite business community that connects through a shared passion for riding a bike!

HISTORY

Now 'international', the community originated in Australia, affectionately known as ACE - Australian Cycling Executives.
Proof of concept and local success led to ACE members and international business influencers championing the growth of the community offshore to Asia, Europe and the USA.

An idea for connecting senior business leaders through shared passion, was formulated in 2010 by ICE founder and retired professional triathlete, Ryan O'Neill with then business partner Gareth Williams.

After a year of marketing consultancy to the business, Carol Walker joined in 2011 as a co-owner with Ryan, to synthesise the business model, further brand evolution and improve event delivery.

The core team now also includes: Katherine Bates, Ben Elvy, Prue Berne and Andrew McQuaid. While we all have titles, we often wear 'many hats' to maximise fast moving opportunities. We are a talented and collaborative team passionate about ICE and a better, healthier way of ‘doing business’!

Our history celebrates organic and strategic growth, significantly attributable to passionate community involvement by ICE Champions such as our Advisory Board and Steering Councils. We also celebrate the input of individuals exemplary in their field, such as our 'brand guy' Glen Barry responsible for our sleek 'mark' and distilled purpose.

ICE is no longer a concept, it’s a unique business community generating global interest and activity across cities such as: Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Singapore, Hong Kong, London... with more on the horizon.
