BRITISH CURLING ANNOUNCES NEW BOARD MEMBERS

Posted on

British Curling has invited three new Non-Executive Directors to join its Board as it strengthens its management team at a key stage in the build up to the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing.

Graham Cormack, Kirsten Sibbit-Johnston and Tino Nombro bring a wide range of expertise and experience to the organisation, drawn from diverse backgrounds.

Graham Cormack is a well known figure within the curling community, having been part of the Scotland team which contested the 2002 European Championships and 2003 World Championships. 

A distinguished career in medicine has seen him become a Fellow of both the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and he is currently a Consultant Ophthalmologist with the Golden Jubilee Hospital, while he has gained boardroom experience in recent years as Chair of Eye Health Scotland and as a Non-Executive Director with Salveas Ltd.

Former solicitor Kirsten Sibbit-Johnston has spent the past decade working in sport and major events, on behalf of various organisations which have included UK Sport, The FA, Formula 1, the Homeless World Cup, the New Zealand Olympic Committee, NFL UK and the International Tennis Federation taking on a wide range of responsibilities.

She also gained valuable experience in chairing the Board of the Auckland Pride Festival, successfully navigating it through what was a challenging time for its organising committee.

Businessman Tino Nombro is a dynamic business leader who has spent the past 23 years working in the fast moving digital sector, 18 of them running his own digital advertising agency.

He has an extensive track record of involvement with organisations as a Director, advisor and mentor to Boards in an array of sectors, from large corporate, to SMEs and non-profit organisations across the UK and globally.

British Curling’s chair John Harris welcomed their recruitment to the Board.

“These appointments are designed to bring an injection of fresh thinking and energy into our strategic planning as we approach the midway stage in the Winter Olympic cycle,” he said.

“We have cast the net wide in looking for the right individuals who boast the qualities required to maximise our effectiveness and we are extremely confident that this process has hugely benefited our organisation.

“Supporting our newly appointed Executive Performance Director Nigel Holl, their broad sporting and business experience will complement the skills of our existing Directors, ensuring that we have an excellent Board in place to work with our senior leadership team and staff.”
