London Sport has made two key appointments to strengthen its top team.

Retna Thevarajah has been named the charity’s new Chief Operating Officer. A qualified accountant, Thevarajah has been a senior executive for more than a decade in the charity sector.  She was Solace Women’s Aid for nine years and was COO for the last four and prior to that worked on international finance projects with Ernst and Young and other management roles in London and south-east Asia.

Meanwhile, Thanh Nguyen has been appointed Head of People.

The appointments come as London Sport celebrates its 10th anniversary and is looking to accelerate its efforts to help Londoners in the most disadvantaged communities lead longer, healthier and happier lives through being active.

London Sport’s Chief Executive Officer, Emily Robinson said: “Retna brings strategic and commercial acumen, with an ability to contribute beyond the operations function. I look forward to her joining the senior leadership team to play a key role in shaping the strategic direction of London Sport on its journey of growth.

“As we continue to grow as an organisation, Thanh will play a critical role in helping us attract, develop and retain talented and committed people.”
