The Amateur Swimming Association has appointed Jane Nickerson as Chief Executive Officer.

Mike Farrar, ASA Group Board Chairman, said: “I am delighted to announce that Jane Nickerson, our current interim CEO, has been confirmed in the role. 

“Jane brings a deep knowledge of both the ASA and our aquatic sports, which will be crucial as we look towards implementing our new strategy and reforming our governance.”

A former national swimmer, Nickerson joined the ASA in 1997 and became Chief Operating Officer in 2009. Since taking on the role of interim CEO in August 2016, Nickerson has been instrumental in developing the organisation’s four-year strategy and securing funding to grow and develop the sports.

Nickerson said: “I am delighted to be given this opportunity to lead the ASA.

“Having secured Sport England funding to deliver our new strategy we can now move ahead with implementing our programmes to encourage more people to take part in swimming, and support our talented athletes across all our aquatic sports.”

Nickerson’s first task will be to launch the ASA’s new strategy, Towards a Nation Swimming, next week.
