London 2017 board restructured

By Matthew Campelli    15 Feb 2016
Nils de Vos will leave his chief executive role for London 2017 to become championship director of the Games

London 2017 – the wholly-owned subsidiary of UK Athletics – will see its role in delivering the 2017 World Championship scaled back following the appointment of an independent board to oversee the event.

UK Sport, City Hall and UK Athletics have signed off the governance changes that will see separation of day-to-day delivery between London 2017 and UK Athletics to a more independent structure.

London 2017 – which was set up to be responsible for the organisation of the Games – will no longer retain a chief executive on the board, while a new co-chair will be appointed by the Greater London Authority (GLA) to oversee the championships alongside UK Athletics chief executive Ed Warner.

Former chief executive Niels de Vos will now take the position of championship director of the event, becoming accountable to the London 2017 Board for UK Athletics’ Delivery.

“This new structure will ensure that we can more clearly separate the oversight function of London 2017 from the delivery functions of UK Athletics,” said UK Sport chief operating officer Simon Morton.

“Better balanced boards make better decisions, and I am confident all stakeholders can now move forward to deliver an outstanding London 2017 World Athletics Championships and make the nation proud.”

Warner said that the “appointment of a co-chair will assist greatly in ensuring we can focus effectively on the task at hand”, while Jeff Jacobs of the Greater London Authority added: “The changes being made reflect our ongoing desire to ensure that the best possible governance structure is in place for the championships.”
