London Sport has named Jillian Moore as its new Chair.

Moore (pictured) has been appointed by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and will chair the non-profit agency alongside her role at Atos where she is Global Head of the company’s digital transformation practice.

Moore has experience of designing and delivering digital transformation projects for commercial and non-profit organisations. Her appointment follows an extensive recruitment process that has also seen Tanya Joseph and Mark Jopling appointed trustees of London Sport.

Moore, Joseph and Jopling will assume their roles immediately and will initially serve for three years, with an option to renew for up to a further two terms.

Moore replaces Kate Hoey MP as Chair of London Sport. Hoey announced her decision to step down from the role in March 2017 and the role has since been covered by former Vice Chair and continuing trustee Richard Barker, and current Vice Chair Shaun Dawson.

London Sport is seeking to make the English capital the most physically active city in the world. The organisation was founded in 2014 as part of an effort by the Mayor of London, Sport England and London Councils to step up physical activity levels in the city.

Moore said: “The organisation’s work over the past five years has laid strong foundations for the future health of the capital and I truly believe that the next few years will see those foundations have a dramatic impact on the lives of Londoners in every part of the city.

“I have been particularly impressed by London Sport’s leadership in digital innovation for grassroots physical activity; this is an area which is close to my heart and one which I feel offers enormous opportunities for the future of sport in London.”
