I took over as Chair of British Rowing in April 2018, and having written this blog for some time first when I was at Betfair (2000-2010) and then just about things that interested (or nearly killed!) me, I thought I would return to it to record some of my thoughts on the sport.

If you’re interested to know my background, I began my career with five years at JPMorgan and five working in the media – broadcasting and producing with BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Sport 24, and writing about cricket for the Daily Telegraph. I was then lucky to be asked to become part of the founding team at Betfair – a business which briefly changed the face of the industry it went in to disrupt.

These days, I am a volunteer in various areas. In addition to chairing rowing, I also chair Archery GB, a Cambridge development board, and a project for Onside Youth Zones in Hammersmith that when completed will give young people in my local area a quality, safe and affordable place to go in their leisure time.  I am also a Trustee of SportsAid, and a Governor at Holyport College, a State boarding school.
