Executive Team Profiles
Chief Executive Officer
Andy joined British Triathlon in November 2017, having previously chaired Triathlon Scotland and was a Non-Executive member of the BTF board prior to being appointed CEO.
He has worked in Sport for 25 years in a variety of roles across event organisation, officiating, sports development, sponsorship, hospitality, governance and leadership.
He is passionate about people development and a keen sporting participant, albeit at a lowly level!
Director of Events
Jonny joined British Triathlon in September 2016 and works across the organisation to lead in the needs analysis, financial planning and delivery of domestic permitted events and the major events portfolio.
With a wealth of experience working in and consulting on major events and commercial strategy, in the UK and overseas in Singapore and Hong Kong, Jonny has worked both rights holder side and sponsor side, maximising engagement across a breadth of sports and sectors.
Jonny strongly believes in the power of all forms of physical activity to provide opportunities that benefit physically and mentally and loves to create opportunities for people to be inspired by and take part in sport and physical activity.
Director of Performance
Mike joined British Triathlon in September 2018, having worked in athletics since the 2008 Beijing Olympic/Paralympic Games.
With a background in physiology, Mike’s role in athletics was responsible for delivering Olympic and Paralympic World Class Programme strategy and operations through the London, Rio and early part of the Tokyo Cycles.
As Director of Performance, Mike leads a large Performance team of coaches, science/medicine practitioners and operational staff (encompassing both the Talent and Olympic/Paralympic World Class Programmes) with the ultimate aim of developing Elite triathletes who can be successful on the global stage. Mike will lead the Olympic and Paralympic Teams to Tokyo where British Triathletes hope to improve on their medal haul from Rio.
Director of Partnerships, Commercial & External Affairs
Ben joined British Triathlon in September 2018 overseeing the commercial and major event portfolio.
Ben has spent his career working in sport across public affairs, community engagement, marketing, sponsorship and commercial development. He has extensive experience working for agencies, brands and governing bodies in the UK, Middle East, Far East and North America.
Ben has been involved with the ITU World Triathlon Series since 2012 both with leading sports marketing agencies, blue chip sponsors and rights holders.
He is passionate about endurance and multisport and the power of sport to benefit society and communities.
Director of Finance
Anne joined British Triathlon in March 2018. She qualified with CIMA twenty years ago starting her career in Agriculture. She then moved to work in Shared Services across Europe, returning to the UK and the insurance industry, before completing her Corporate career in the Financial Services sector.
Despite being an enthusiastic volunteer at various Triathlon events she has still resisted the urge to don a wetsuit and prefers to be a professional supporter instead!
Director of People & Culture
Kirsten joined British Triathlon in February 2021 leading on organisational development and governance before becoming Director of People and Culture in December 2021.
Kirsten was a lawyer for twenty years before embarking on a second career in organisational development. Her recent PhD, the first to explore organisational resilience in elite sport, ignited a passion for supporting the collaborative development of individuals and teams, and creating the right environments for people to thrive.
Having had what can kindly be called a mixed history in triathlon events of all distances, Kirsten still loves to swim, bike, and run, just not necessarily all on the same day.
