British Basketball Chair Ian Curryer steps down

Ian Curryer has decided to step aside from his position as Chair of British Basketball in order to fully focus on his role as Chief Executive Officer of Nottingham City Council. The British Basketball Board will now begin the process to appoint an interim Chair with immediate effect.

Commenting on his decision, Ian Curryer said:

“The reality is that the demands of my role as Chief Executive of Nottingham City Council has made it increasingly difficult for me to devote the necessary time to Chair British Basketball, and so I have decided to step aside to make way for someone who can commit what’s required. It’s been an honour to serve such a dynamic sport and I am hopeful that the future is bright for the elite game.”

Thanking Ian Curryer for his contribution to British Basketball, Andy Borrie, Senior Independent Director said:

“Ian has Chaired British Basketball during a very challenging period and on behalf of the Board I would like to thank him for his tireless contribution to our sport. The Board will now begin the process to appoint an interim Chair at this crucial time for the elite game.”
