Executive Transactions

Lawn Tennis Association CEO ROGER DRAPER has "announced that he will stand down in September, so ending his 7 1/2-year reign as one of British sport’s least popular -- and best paid -- administrators.” Draper was “left vulnerable after tennis had its funding cut by Sport England" (London TELEGRAPH, 3/14). The LTA said Draper's decision to step down comes "after one of the most outstanding years in the history of British tennis, both on and off court" (LONDON TIMES, 3/14).
