Former News international chief Mike Darcey appointed chair of British Gymnastics

By Tom Walker    07 Feb 2019
Originally from New Zealand, Darcey spent more than two years as CEO of News International

British Gymnastics has appointed Mike Darcey as its new chair, to replace the outgoing Matt Neville, who is stepping down after serving the maximum term of eight years.

Originally from New Zealand, Darcey was CEO of News International, publishers of The Times, The Sunday Times and the Sun newspapers, from 2013 to 2015.

Prior to that, he spent 15 years at Sky, initially as director of strategy, then as chief operating officer for six years.

Darcey played a prominent role in most of Sky’s major strategic decisions and its commercial and regulatory dealings during this period.

This included the acquisition of major sports broadcast rights including the Premier League, Champions League, Formula One and others.

Before his corporate career, Darcey was a competitive gymnast in New Zealand and later a coach and judge.

"Gymnastics played a big part in my life growing up in New Zealand and it is exciting to think I am getting back involved at such an exciting time for British Gymnastics," Darcey said.

"During my tenure, we will be focused on delivering the British Gymnastics strategic plan; striving to meet the participation boom, ensuring sustainable medal-success, being a leading example of good governance and integrity, and tackling the ‘business of sport’.

"Some big challenges – but I can’t wait to get started.”

Darcey will officially take over the role on 14 March.

Outgoing chair Matt Neville added: “It’s been an honour to be the chair of British Gymnastics and I congratulate Mike on his appointment and wish him well.

"British Gymnastics has achieved unprecedented success and the sport’s popularity and results across key areas speak for itself. I am proud of the part I’ve played in helping British Gymnastics realise their ambition.”
