Vintage Motor Cycle Club CEO James Hewing to step down on 31/12/13

Posted on


After over nine years at Allen House I will be stepping down from my role as CEO of the VMCC LTD effective 31/12/13.

As many of you who know me might imagine, this has been a very difficult decision for me and it is one which I have been wrestling with for some time. However, after nearly a decade in the role I felt it was time to seek a fresh challenge which allowed me to use my experience & skills in a new area. Whilst something of a cliché I am also looking forward to having more weekend time with my young family who I have neglected at times, especially over the past few springs and summers. I am delighted that many VMCC members I have met over the years have become good friends and  I am looking forward to remaining a VMCC member myself whilst taking part in VMCC runs & events as a “civilian”!

My role here at the VMCC has been an extremely satisfying one and I am very proud of what the team here at Allen House has achieved. Against a backdrop of failing membership numbers within similar organisations we have seen huge growth in this area and events such as The VMCC Festival of 1000 Bikes have brought us to the attention of a new, younger audience. I am confident that the foundations laid in recent years can now be built upon to bring further success to this wonderful, unique organisation.

I also want to reassure VMCC Members and key stakeholders alike that I will be involved in the handover to ensure a smooth transition to what I believe will be a new management structure which will be based around the Club’s elected Directors.  

Finally I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming amount of support and encouragement I have received over the years in the job that some had described as “an impossible task”. Leading a membership based organisation of so many differing views, interests and opinions has certainly been a challenge but is one I wouldn’t have missed it for the World!

With Kindest Regards


James Hewing, CEO, VMCC LTD.

    Its a great pity that Mr Hewing failed to mention that during his period as CEO of the VMCC he has presided over financial losses of hundreds of thousands of pounds which included his inflated salary that the club could not afford.
