A message from our Chairman John Coles:

“I am delighted to announce that after an exhaustive process we have chosen a new CEO who will take over from Mike at the end of March.

From a list of 27 applicants and after a series of interviews the Board has chosen Mark Winder to take the reins and continue the outstanding success story that is Goalball UK. Mark is currently CEO of the Bradford Bulls Foundation a charity with sport development at its heart working with 24000 people every year. He has been involved in Sport, Education and charities for over 15 years and has an enviable track record developing and delivering opportunities for individuals to thrive through participating in sport.

Mike will be a tough act to follow but your Board is confident that Mark has the credentials, ability and enthusiasm to be an excellent CEO for Goalball.

I know that Mark will make it a priority to meet as many of you as he can when he starts full time with us and am sure you will make him welcome.”
