BOA Chair Moynihan Steps Down A Year Early After Seven Years At Helm
Published August 14, 2012
BACK TO BUSINESS: Also in London, O'Connor & Munnery reported that Moynihan wrote in his letter: “I intend to hand on the baton smoothly and securely to a successor chair who, once elected, will work with [BOA CEO] Andy [Hunt] and the Board to set the strategy for the next quad and appoint the management team to take us forward to [the next Olympic Games in] Rio." Moynihan said that he "intends to return to the business world, focusing in particular on the energy sector." He has previous experience as Clipper Windpower Dir and Clipper Windpower Europe Exec Chair (LONDON TIMES, 8/13). REUTERS' Tom Pilcher reported that Moynihan said that he hoped sports would become "more of a priority in schools" after Britain's showing at the London Games. Moynihan: "I believe that we need to review and where relevant rethink government sports policy in order to translate the inspirational effect of the Games directly into participation. The new requirement for primary schools to provide competitive sport is a step in the right direction" (REUTERS, 8/13).
