By iSportconnect | February 13, 2013

Andy Hunt will step down from his role as CEO of the British Olympic Association (BOA) at the end of the month.

Hunt made his announcement to the BOA Board of Directors having decided to pursue other opportunities.

“It has been an amazing four years leading the BOA as the host National Olympic Committee for the London 2012 Games,” said Hunt.

“I will always be proud to have led Team GB at a Home Games and of the fantastic performance of the team this summer and the way in which the BOA supported the athletes.

“Now that the Games are over, and the organisation’s strategy for the next four years is taking shape, the BOA’s responsibilities and the job of the CEO are different, and I feel it is the right time for me to move on to another leadership role with breadth and profile similar to the responsibilities I’ve fulfilled since 2008.”

Chairman of the BOA, Lord Sebastian Coe added: “Team GB had the very best facilities, care and preparation at the London 2012 Games thanks to the tireless efforts and passion of Andy Hunt and his team over the last four years.

“I know I speak on behalf of all Team GB athletes and the BOA Board when I say thank you to Andy for the work he has done, and I wish him all the best in his next endeavour.”

Hunt joined the BOA in 2008 and helped overhaul the organisation by creating the Athletes’ Commission which is responsible for shaping future projects in the BOA.
