Aline Delhaye - General Secretary


Aline Delhaye is General Secretary of the Federation of European Motorcyclists' Associations (FEMA). She is responsible for the coordination of FEMA activities and lobby work, defending, representing and promoting European motorcyclists' interests in Europe. Ms Delhaye, the first
woman to hold this position, took up her duties on 1st September 2006. She is FEMA's 5th General Secretary.

Aline (33) is Belgian but she grew up in Africa. She likes to say that she was born on a
motorcycle: when she was still a baby, her father used to carry her in his rucksack wherever he went. At the age of 15, she started riding 250 cc motorcycles. Nowadays, she rides her Triumph Tiger 1050 on a daily basis.

Aline has extensive experience in lobbying and is used to clearly express her views and defend very committed positions. Already at university - where she studied translation - she was leading and representing the Student Association. After her studies, she worked for Telefonica's representation office in Brussels. Then, she very soon started working in the field of motorcycling: for two year, she was Communications Manager at ACEM (the Motorcycle Industry in Europe) before joining FEMA as General Secretary. Over the years, defending riders' rights has become her utmost priority.

Her extensive knowledge of languages represents a clear asset to work at the European and international level: Aline fluently speaks French, English and Spanish and has good knowledge of Dutch and Portuguese. She has travelled across different continents and feels at ease in any cultural environment.
