The British Olympic Association (BOA) has appointed Andy Anson as its new CEO.

Anson, a former chief financial officer at entertainment giant Disney, joins the national olympic committee from small-sided football operator Goals Soccer Centres, where he was chief executive.

During his career, Anson has held a number of high-profile roles in sport, including chief executive of England's bid to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup and a stint on the board of directors at Manchester United Football Club. He has served as an unpaid independent non-executive director of the BOA since 2011.

Anson joins the BOA following the departure of former CEO Bill Sweeney to take up a similar role at the Rugby Football Union.

No start date has yet been agreed for Anson's tenure, although it is anticipated this will be in the autumn of 2019.

“With Tokyo 2020 on the horizon I believe the BOA and Team GB has an exciting future ahead," Anson said.

“I've been fortunate to enjoy a rewarding career across different aspects of the sports industry over many years, but the BOA is an organisation close to my heart and I'm extremely motivated to play a role in the future of the organisation on behalf of the athletes and the member national governing bodies."
