British Swimming Announces Interim Leadership Appointments

5th December 2012

British Swimming has appointed into two key leadership roles following the results of the London 2012 Performance Debrief and the resignation of former National Performance Director, Michael Scott.
Mark Perry, who has successfully led both the Open Water and Development Programmes for British Swimming will move up from his current position to take up the interim role of Technical Lead.
Perry, who has recently returned from the Brazilian School Games where his development swimmers won 23 medals out of 24 finals, will provide technical support to the five British Swimming Intensive
Training Centres (British Gas ITCs) and to other coaches with swimmers on the World Class Programme.
Graham Bassi, the current Assistant Coach at the British Gas Swansea ITC, will replace Perry in the interim to manage the Development Programme.
Ian Mason, Director of World Class Operations for British Swimming will act as line manager to those who previously reported to Scott.
The recruitment process for a National Performance Director and Head Coach are now underway.
