Triathlon England President and Chair reappointed


Martin Harris has been reappointed as President of Triathlon England following his proposal by fellow Triathlon England Council members Steve Robertson and Lawrence Green.

Jem Lawson was also reappointed to his position as Chair of the Triathlon England Management Board following the recent recruitment process.

The Triathlon England Council made the decision on the back of a successful and progressive year for the organisation.

Over the past 12 months, Triathlon England has seen its membership reach an all time high, whilst providing members with an ever-increasing number of racing opportunities across the country.

There has also been progressive organisational change led by Mark Barfield as Director of English Operations who is building a team of dedicated staff that will serve the English membership, clubs, coaches, officials, volunteers and race organisers.

Martin Harris, who starts his second year as President, said "To be reappointed as President of Triathlon England is a great honour. Triathlon is a fast growing, modern and dynamic Olympic sport, and we must ensure that we develop the structures needed to support this growth – ensuring we continue to promote excellence in our sport and create opportunities for everyone to achieve their personal triathlon challenges.”

Jem Lawson was also delighted with his re-appointment adding “Triathlon England currently has over 12,000 members and 555 registered clubs, figures which are rising year on year.

"As a membership organisation, we are constantly striving to deliver a high quality of service to our existing members as well as attracting new members, ensuring the triathlon community is both protected and represented to develop member benefits in the future.”

Director of English Operations at Triathlon England, Mark Barfield believes the two re-appointments will greatly benefit the triathlon community adding, “Both Martin and Jem have significantly contributed to Triathlon England’s growth over the past 12 months and with their continued direction; I expect to see even more success in 2011.”
