WADA Chief Spokesperson to Leave Role

March 23, 2017

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)’s Chief Spokesperson Ben Nichols is to leave his role in May, after four years at the organisation’s headquarters in Montreal, Canada.

Nichols oversaw Media Relations for WADA during the most turbulent time in the organisation’s 17-year history; a period which spanned the tenures of previous President John Fahey, current President Sir Craig Reedie, and the Pound and McLaren investigations into widespread doping in sport.

Nichols’ international career has taken him from the United Kingdom to the United States, and the United Arab Emirates to Canada, during which time he has held roles as Chief Press Officer of the Dubai Tennis Championships, Senior Press Officer for F1 team Lotus Renault GP, and Head of Sports PR for Influence Associates.

Nichols finishes his role as WADA’s Senior Media Relations and Communications Manager in May, at which time he will be returning to the UK.
