British Taekwondo have begun recruitment for a chief executive and an independent chair following a review of the organisation's Board.
British Taekwondo's 2018 Annual General Meeting in December saw the Board undergo a major organisational restructure, with Gemma Biescas and Sivakumar Ramasamy elected as non-executive directors.
Two-time world champion and Olympic bronze medallist Sarah Stevenson Jennings became President and Jonny Cowan took up the role of interim chair.
A subsequent review of the organisation's performance and future development plans saw the Board take the unanimous decision to part ways with the then chief executive Shirley Stapleton.
Non-executive director Mike Mckenzie then decided to resign from the Board due to its decision to become operational rather than appoint an interim chief executive.
The Board has spent the past two months developing a framework for a new chief executive, reviewing areas such as the company's organisational structure, governance and compliance, safeguarding and disciplinary and stakeholders relations.
It is now recruiting for a new chief executive, who will "spearhead the strategic direction and culture of British Taekwondo".
It is also recruiting for an independent chair, which will see Cowan step down.
Two new independent non-executive directors will be hired, alongside a finance and administration officer and a membership services officer.
British Taekwondo now claim that they are in a "position to be able to refocus our time and energy to refine our current programmes, products and services, introduce more programmes and activities to increase activation and participation work".
British Taekwondo is the national governing body for taekwondo in Britain and works in collaboration with GB Taekwondo, the elite athlete arm of the organisation.
The country is hosting the World Taekwondo Championships in Manchester in May.
