Swim England has appointed Andy Salmon as its new chief executive.
Salmon, who has spent the past six years as chief executive of British Triathlon, will take up his new role in February 2024. He will replace Jane Nickerson, who is retiring after spending 25 years with the national governing body.
Prior to his role at British Triathlon, Salmon was deputy chief executive at Scottish Golf for almost a decade.
“I’m excited to be taking on the new role,” Salmon said.
“There is much to do as there are many challenges facing the whole sporting system – and swimming specifically, as it embarks on its cultural change journey detailed in the Heart of Aquatics plan.
“By continuing to listen and engage with members and clubs, and being clear and transparent in that work, Swim England can provide meaningful support and resources to the aquatics community.
“Swimming, diving, artistic swimming and water polo are activities which are enjoyed by millions of people of all ages.”
Nickerson, who will continue in the role of CEO until February 2024, said: “I’m delighted to be handing over the baton to Andy and would like to pass on my congratulations to him on his appointment.
“He’ll be taking over a wonderful, dedicated team who I know will warmly welcome him to the organisation and support him as much as they have me during my time as chief executive.”
