The English Institute of Sport (EIS) has made two appointments to the organisation’s board.

They are CEO of British Rowing Andy Parkinson and Emma Boggis, the former CEO of Sports and Recreation Alliance.

Parkinson will replace the outgoing Sally Munday – who has been appointed as CEO of UK Sport – while Boggis joins the organisation as a non-executive director.

Parkinson said: "I have been a supporter of the organisation for many years and, since being at British Rowing, I've seen first-hand the value their staff bring to the performance environment.

“I am looking forward to working with the board and contributing to the long term strategy of the EIS so that it can continue to best support our athletes and sports.”

According to EIS Chair John Steele, the two appointments will offer a "wealth of experience" and will help the organisation set its future direction.

“As we approach a games year, this is a unique moment to be joining the organisation and I’m sure that Andy and Emma will relish the opportunity to shape the way we continue providing world-class support to the sports we work with," Steele said.
