Women in Sport has appointed Stephanie Hilborne OBE as its new chief executive.

Hilborne, who is currently CEO at The Wildlife Trusts, is an experienced campaigner for change, as well as driving developments in both policy and government legislation.

She has worked in nature conservation for more than 20 years and was instrumental in the introduction of the Marine & Coastal Access Act 2009 and the Natural Environment White Paper 2011.

According to a statement from Women in Sport, her ability to "change opinions and behaviour" was a deciding factor in her appointment, as her skills "will be vital for the next phase of Women in Sport’s work creating equal opportunities for women and girls in sport".

Jayne Haines, chair of Women in Sport said: “Stephanie brings with her considerable experience as a CEO as well as a strength in campaigning and leadership and we are confident that she will take the charity to the next phase of development.

"Next year is the 36th year since Women in Sport was founded, and we are excited about what lies ahead for this fantastic organisation with Stephanie at the helm."

On her appointment, Hilborne commented: "Sport is something I’m hugely passionate about; it was the centre of my life when I was young, and it taught me leadership, teamwork and resilience.

"After many years in the environment movement, I am delighted to have the opportunity to help Women in Sport with its mission to break down barriers to girls and women participating in sport, unimpeded by social expectations."

Hilborne will officially take up her post at the end of October 2019 and replaces the outgoing Ruth Holdaway.
