Dear Colleagues,

I’m pleased to announce the appointment of ICZ Sport Director Caitriona O’Shea, who will take up the post in March.

Caitriona is currently Chief Executive of The Royal Air Force Sports Federation, the military charity having previously been CEO and Company Secretary of Scottish Gymnastics for a number of years.  Caitriona has 20 years’ professional leadership experience in the sports industry, including roles as a charity trustee, board director, company secretary and strategic adviser. Caitriona holds master’s degrees in both Sport Administration and Business Administration.

Caitriona joins the existing Directors: Robin Bargar, ICZ Director Digital and Creative; Mike Brown ICZ Director Engineering and Environments; and Andrew Spencer ICZ Director Health and Society to complete the ICZ leadership team.

The team will be pivotal in driving forward our industry-focussed strategy.

I’d like to take the opportunity to extend my thanks to the outgoing ICZ Development Lead Geoff Thompson MBE and Associate Development Lead Alex Fenton for their work in ensuring the continual growth of the Sport ICZ.

Kind regards

Professor Richard Stephenson
Deputy Vice-Chancellor
