09 Feb Switch the Play appoint new CEO
International rugby player, Leon Lloyd, has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer at Switch The Play. Leon joined the team as a Director in April 2016 and has been playing an active role in driving athlete transition towards the top of the agenda within professional sport ever since.
News of the appointment follows Leon’s recent success in securing a First Class degree in Business Leadership and Management, an achievement he credits to the skills transferred from his time as an international rugby player into the classroom.
Speaking about his new role, Leon says, “Having a huge passion for developing athlete career transition for well over 10 years, I am excited about bringing my experiences to a more executive role at Switch the Play. I am fortunate to have been involved with some amazing and successful teams, including everyone at Switch The Play, and I aim to use the skills I have acquired during these times, coupled with my recent academic qualifications, to ensure athletes are given the support they need throughout their careers.”
