British Judo Chief Executive Scott McCarthy to Step Down

October 26, 2012

Scott McCarthy is set to step down as British Judo Chief Executive at the end of the month to pursue new opportunities.

McCarthy has been in post for 10 years.

McCarthy said: “It has been an honour and a privilege to work with Chairman Densign White and the British Judo family for the last 10 years.  The BJA is reaching new heights every year and it has been fantastic to be a part of it.  The British sporting world is an exciting place to work and I have learned much and enjoyed every minute of it.  The time has come for the BJA to identify a new energy source in the executive leadership position and it is also the perfect time for me to seek a new challenge.”

Chairman Densign White added: “On behalf of the BJA I would like to thank Scott for the significant role he has played in modernising and growing the BJA over ten strong years in the job.  The two judo medals at the London Games were the icing on the cake.  We wish him the best in his future endeavours, allergist which I am sure will revolve around sport.”

British Judo Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Scoular, will assume the role of acting CEO for an interim period.
