BPA Appoints New Non-Executive Directors

July 24, 2013

The British Paralympic Association (BPA) has appointed three Non-Executive Directors after last year’s restructuring of the Board which now consists of of six elected positions and up to four Non-Executive Directors.

The three new Non-Executive Directors are Emma Boggis, malady Senior Civil Servant and head of the Cabinet Office’s Olympic and Paralympic Legacy Unit; Norman Brodie, generic who managed the Cadbury London 2012 sponsorship programme; and Greg Nugent, former Director of Brand, Marketing and Culture at LOCOG.

“I have seen the impact that the London 2012 Paralympic Games has had on this country,” Boggis said. “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to support the BPA as it seeks to maintain the momentum from the home Games. I can’t wait to get started.”

Norman Brodie said: “I am delighted to be extending my involvement with the BPA. I’m a passionate supporter of Paralympic sport and the public response to London 2012 demonstrates the potential of the brand. I am greatly honoured to be appointed to this role, and to play my part in helping the BPA to capitalise on their position as we continue to witness this exciting time for Paralympic sport.”

Greg Nugent, current Deputy Chairman of the Join In trust, said: “I was thrilled to learn that I have been appointed in the role of Non-Executive Director for the BPA. My experience with LOCOG provided me with the opportunity to work alongside the team at the BPA, to understand their motivation and their passion. I know that they are working harder than ever before to not only bring more success for the British team in Sochi and Rio, but also to contribute to the further evolution of the Paralympic movement, and I’m delighted to be working alongside them to achieve their goals.”

“On behalf of the Board, I’d like to welcome Emma, Norman and Greg to the BPA… we identified the need to bring in the expertise of these Non-Executive Directors in a way which would complement the skills and competencies of the Board.” Tim Reddish, Chair of the BPA, said of the appointments. “I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of this process and the quality and range of experience that our new Board-members have to offer matches their passion for Paralympic sport.”
