Steven will bring significant high-performance expertise in his role of Independent Non-Executive Director
GB Snowsport are delighted to confirm the appointment of Steven Seligmann, Performance Director for British Shooting, as an Independent Non-Executive Director. Steven’s appointment fills a vacancy left following the departure of longstanding Director Richard Leman from the board earlier this year.
As Performance Director for British Shooting since 2014, Steven has played an integral role in the transformation of Olympic and Paralympic Shooting in Great Britain over the last decade, and will use his extensive experience of British and global high-performance systems to provide counsel and guidance as GB Snowsport looks to build on last season’s remarkable results and performances.
An experienced leader, coach and coach educator in his own right, Steven’s 20-year track record with British Shooting, the England & Wales Cricket Board, and Cricket Scotland will bring significant expertise of the inner workings of elite sport environments to the GB Snowsport board, as well as providing meaningful support to Head Coach Pat Sharples and Head of Sport Sciences and Medicine Kearnan Myall.
Commenting on his appointment, Steven said:
“This is a hugely exciting time to be joining the board of GB Snowsport, and I’m thrilled to be able to offer my support to one of Britain’s most exciting sporting projects. British skiers and snowboarders are delivering remarkable results on an ever more frequent basis, and I am very much looking forward to bringing my own high-performance experience to bear in support of the team and its ambitions.
“The British high-performance system is an environment I know very well, and I have every confidence that GB Snowsport will continue to grow and thrive within it alongside UK Sport, FIS, and everyone involved in supporting British snowsport athletes’ performances at the highest levels.”
Jason Cobbold, Chair of GB Snowsport, said:
“I’m delighted that Steven has agreed to join our board, and I am confident we will all greatly benefit from his expertise and the great respect he commands within the sport industry. Steven’s track record with British Shooting speaks for itself, and the board was unanimous in our belief that he will bring valuable support to our already high-performing coaching and performance strategies.”
Steven joins the GB Snowsport board with immediate effect, and we look forward to working with him throughout the duration of his tenure.
