Joanna Adams, CEO of England Netball will be leaving the governing body later this year after almost 10 years with the organisation.

She is joining the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), where she will take up the role of chief commercial officer.

Adams, who first joined England Netball as commercial director, took over her current role in December 2014.

In the four and a half years since, she has overseen record growth in England Netball's participation programmes, sponsorship deals and ticket revenue.

She was also crucial in securing the rights to host the Netball World Cup 2019, held in Liverpool last month.

“Joanna has made an enormous contribution and has had a really positive impact on the game during her time at England Netball," said Colin Povey, chair of England Netball.

"During her tenure, we have witnessed the professionalisation of the elite game and a dramatic transformation in our broadcast and commercial partnerships.

"She leaves the sport in great shape; participation and membership are at all-time highs and the success of the national team at last year’s Commonwealth Games and the recent Netball World Cup in Liverpool continue to inspire our players in both the elite and grassroots level of the game."

The successes on and off the pitch have meant that, during Adams' tenure, England Netball has received a number of industry accolades for its work – including being named Sport Organisation of the Year at the BT Sport Industry Awards.

“I have put my heart and soul into leading England Netball and I am delighted that I had the opportunity to do so," Adams said.

"The sport has attracted many plaudits over the last 18 months – in particular for the positive example it has set for women and girls in sport."
