The appointment will take effect immediately and, according to a statement, "underpins the NGBs transformation of its leadership model" and follows the May 2018 appointment of CEO Lisa Pearce.

Wilson is the first BWB chair to have been recruited from outside of the sports membership and brings significant boardroom experience to the organisation.

He has held trustee positions for both sporting and academic organisations, as well as the role of chief executive of Conde Nast College – part of Conde Nast International, the multinational publishing group which owns Vogue and GQ magazines.

He has also been a trustee at Burnley Football Club in the Community and Liverpool Amateur Football League.

Aat Burnley, he was instrumental in the setting up of The University and College of Football Business – a partnership between Burnley Football Club and Buckinghamshire New University.

Working together with CEO Lisa Pearce, Wilson will be tasked with "driving forward the momentum of change" at a time when the sport of wheelchair basketball is experiencing significant growth in both participation numbers as well as commercial opportunities.

Commenting on his appointment, Wilson said: “At my core I am a passionate advocate of ‘sport for all’ and look forward to driving forward the NGB’s ambitious strategic direction into Tokyo 2020 and beyond.”
