Sport England has completed the restructuring of its executive leadership team with the appointment of Lizzie Hanna as Chief Finance Officer.
Hanna joins the grassroots sports body from the National Citizen Service Trust (NCST), where she held responsibility for a full suite of corporate services including finance and commercial.
Prior to NCST, Hanna worked as finance director at London North Eastern Railway and was a non-executive director at Kettering General Hospital. She also spent five years at telecoms giant BT supporting governance, risk and operational change.
She said: “Sport England’s ambitious plans and commitment to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of communities highlighted through the Uniting the Movement strategy is a compelling and infectious vision.
“I have been impressed by the dynamic culture shared by colleagues and look forward to the challenges ahead and meeting the wider Sport England team.”
