CIMSPA announces Sean Holt's appointment as CEO
BY Pete Hayman

Sean Holt has been appointed CEO of the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA), heading up its central team with immediate effect.

Holt has led the institute in an interim capacity since its launch last year, following a merger between Institute for Sport, Parks and Leisure and the Institute of Sport and Recreation Management – the latter of which he was chief executive.

During his tenure as interim CEO, he helped secure chartership for the institute from the Royal Privy Council and oversaw the appointment of its regional and national management boards.

Holt has more than 20 years of experience within the sport and active leisure sector. Former roles have seen him play a key part on iconic projects, such as the new Wembley Stadium.

CIMSPA chair Miles Templeman said: "Sean has considerable knowledge of the sector, and his wide-ranging experience means that he can appreciate the challenges that professionals working in these areas face.

"Sean has already successfully achieved a number of significant milestones in his first year as interim CEO, in what was always going to be a challenging period, following a merger and taking into account the challenging economic climate."

CIMSPA aims to represent 1 million professionals currently working in the sport and physical activity sector across the UK.
