Xavier Brice

Ever since childhood Xavier has been fascinated by transport’s impact on society. He believes that how we get around shapes how happy we are as individuals, and how happy and healthy our society is. He thinks we could all be a lot healthier and happier and is thrilled to be leading the charity Sustrans, an organisation working with others to make that happen. 

Xavier joined Sustrans in June 2016 from Transport for London where he held a variety of roles, including leading the modernisation of London Underground’s stations and developing a new cycling strategy for the city, which led to the introduction of the Cycle Superhighways and Cycle Hire Scheme. Before this Xavier worked internationally as a strategy consultant.

Xavier is also a member of the Department for Transport’s Net Zero Board, and a member of National Lottery’s Climate Action Fund Advisory Panel. 

Xavier is a lifelong cyclist, a walker, loves to travel by train and bus and owns a car. He is married with two young girls and lives in Surrey.
