LONG standing ukactive CEO David Stalker is to step down from his full time executive post over the coming months, after seven successful years at the helm.
David has led ukactive through a period of consistent and substantial growth during his time in charge and under his leadership, the organisation has broken the 3,500 member barrier, with members representing the full spectrum of the physical activity world – from public, private and third sectors.
As part of the transition, David will join the new board for 12 months in order to support the next chief executive and new chair, replacing the outgoing ukactive chairman Fred Turok.
David will maintain his executive role with the organisation up until the end of June 2015 to assure a smooth transition. He will be supported in doing so by the existing executive team at ukactive.
The outgoing chair, Fred, will support David and the nominations committee to appoint a new chairman and subsequently a CEO.
David said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at ukactive, as I have seen the organisation and the sector it represents growth and diversify. Not only has ukactive grown its membership through increasing the number and range of services but it has also improved the nation’s understanding of physical inactivity, which I am incredibly proud of.
“I have no doubt that the team will take this organisation from strength to strength as it continues to support its members and partners to turn the tide of inactivity. I now look forward to once again being a member and supporter of ukactive and helping the new CEO with through new position on the board.”
