Active Lincolnshire has appointed Lisa Harrison as their new Chief Executive today, Friday 30 June.
Lisa, who brings more than 25 years of experience in the sport, leisure and health industries, will take up the role on Monday 3 July.
Dan Ellmore, Chair of Active Lincolnshire who oversaw the recruitment process, said: “I am delighted to welcome Lisa to Lincolnshire. She brings a wealth of experience from many years in senior manager roles in the sport and leisure sector. As regional director for 1Life, she covered Lincolnshire so she already has a great understanding of our county.”
“The Board and Sport England will be working with Lisa over the coming months to ensure that she has the support to make a real impact in Lincolnshire.”
Lisa commented: “Having had first-hand experience professionally and personally of the positive impact an active lifestyle can have on everyone’s quality of life, I am looking forward to working across the new remit of Active Lincolnshire, which now encompasses physical activity, health and wellbeing in addition to sport.
“One of my priorities will be to meet our stakeholders and understand how we can work together effectively to create the behaviour change needed to deliver the new vision for the county; 20,021 more people more active by 2021.”
