British Eventing is pleased to announce that, with immediate effect, Jude Matthews will be the Interim CEO of British Eventing.
A passionate and active grassroots event rider, Jude has served on the BE Board since April 2018, and brings with her more than 17 years’ experience with organisations such as KPMG, Hanson PLC, and more recently in her role as General Counsel & Company Secretary at FTSE100 listed Hargreaves Lansdown PLC.
Jude commented; “I am delighted to be taking on the Interim CEO role. It is a time of much change for BE, and with this there are challenges to overcome. We are listening to your concerns, and we will be focused on addressing these. We are lucky enough to be involved in the most fantastic sport, with so many passionate people who make it happen. I very much look forward to meeting more of you out and about over the course of the coming season.”
The CEO is a critically important role for the organisation and the sport, and much care and consideration will be taken in the recruitment process to ensure a smooth transition for all of our members. The recruitment process for a new CEO starts this week, which you will see advertised on the BE website as well as other relevant media.
