Mike spent nearly 16 years at Sport England and was responsible for the creation and leadership of the children and young people, community sport and tackling inactivity policy portfolios, which pre-pandemic were driving up activity levels for children and adults.

He commissioned and championed the Active Partnerships network which help people get active at a local level, repositioning them at the heart of grassroots sport and activity.

Mike is a passionate advocate for Access Sport and wants to use his new Board position to help take the charity to a new level as it seeks to fulfil its Growth Strategy released in summer 2022.
