UKA have today announced that Ed Warner will remain as Chairman of UKA until after the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The appointment of Warner as Chairman was initially for a three year period, but in a decision endorsed by the UK Members Council, the board have extended Warner’s contract until January 2013.

It means Warner, whose first duty in 2007 was to appoint CEO Niels de Vos, will continue in his role as a part time non-executive director leading the Board of UKA, working closely with de Vos, and continuing to lead UKA’s development both within Great Britain and the global athletics community

Lynn Davies, President of the UK Members Council said: “It was a unanimous decision to extend Ed Warner’s contract beyond that of his original appointment. His leadership of UKA since his appointment in January 2007 has been exemplary, and we look forward to continuing our work with him up to and beyond the next Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

Ed Warner said:

“I’m delighted to be invited to continue as Chairman of UKA. I feel we have an increasingly important role to play in the development of the sport worldwide, not only with the approach of London 2012, but also by working with the IAAF and others on their efforts to modernise athletics’ appeal to future generations of fans and athletes.”
