New CEO of BTF appointed
Andy Salmon has been announced as the new Chief Executive of British Triathlon, to take the sport forward to Tokyo 2020 and beyond.
Salmon will take strategic lead of the National Governing Body in mid-November and will guide the sport through the Olympic and Paralympic cycle. His role will also embrace executive responsibility for Triathlon England and fulfilment of its objectives of building participation, supporting and increasing membership.
The former Welsh Schools Golfer will bring with him a wealth of leadership experience, having held the position of Deputy CEO and Development Director of Scottish Golf for 9 years prior to leaving the organisation in late 2016. Salmon is currently interim CEO of Scottish Snowsport and Chairman of Triathlon Scotland. Having been involved with a number of sports, Salmon’s broad perspective of the challenges and opportunities facing the sector will be invaluable to British Triathlon.
Salmon said: “I am hugely excited to be joining the team at British Triathlon and Triathlon England. There is so much to be positive about in triathlon and I look forward to building on the tremendous progress made by Jack Buckner and the team as we strive to deliver the 2024 vision.”
Ian Howard, President of British Triathlon, said: “We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Andy Salmon as the new Chief Executive of British Triathlon. We are confident he will drive the organisation towards continued success over the coming years.
