British Triathlon have announced that their CEO, Andy Salmon, will be stepping down at the beginning of next year, with the former Chair of Triathlon Scotland set to take on the role of CEO at Swim England in early 2024.

Having spent six years at the helm of British Triathlon following his appointment in 2017, Salmon was also a Non-Executive member of the British Triathlon Federation board prior to taking on the job as Chief Executive Officer and has more than 25 years worth of experience in the industry.

With his resignation confirmed, British Triathlon have said that the process to replace Salmon will start imminently, with the organisation facing a short window of time to appoint a new CEO ahead of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris.


“British Triathlon is strongly positioned with a clear strategy”

In a statement released by the federation, Bill James, who is the Chair of British Triathlon, thanked Salmon for his service and reassured members that the organisation is strongly positioned moving forward, with a clear strategy of its next steps.

“We are naturally disappointed to be losing Andy in the early part of next year, but he will leave with our thanks and appreciation for all that he has achieved. We wish Andy the best of luck in his new role. With Swim, Bike Run being the cornerstone of our sport we hope Andy will have every success at Swim England. British Triathlon is strongly positioned, with a clear strategy and we have an exciting future ahead.”

Admitting that the decision to step down had been a difficult one, outgoing CEO Salmon expressed his gratitude to the board for their support during his tenure, whilst sharing his excitement to take on a new role at Swim England next year.

“This has been an incredibly difficult decision for me. It has been an incredible privilege to be the British Triathlon CEO and I am enormously grateful to the Board for the support they have shown me over the past six years. There is so much that I will miss about Triathlon, not least the outstanding team of colleagues. However, the opportunity at Swim England is considerable and I will be very excited to start in that role early next year.”
