She will serve a four-year term as part of GB Boxing’s 12 person board and help to manage the future vision, strategy and direction of the organisation.
As an independent director Christine will have particular responsibility for performance sport and will bring the knowledge and insights she gained in her career as an elite athlete to benefit the world class performance programme for boxing.
Christine said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to be part of one of Great Britain’s most successful and admired world class programmes.
It is a great opportunity for me to bring my years of experience as an athlete to a new sport and I am very much looking forward to working with the rest of the board to develop the organisation and help it to maintain and build on the successes it has achieved over the last decade.”
GB Boxing’s Chairman, Steven Esom added: “We wanted someone with good experience of elite sporting performance to take on this role and could not have found a more suitable candidate than Christine.
I have absolutely no doubt that she will be a huge asset to the board and that the GB Boxing will benefit enormously from the qualities she brings as a person and her knowledge and experience of what it takes to sustain a career as a top-class international athlete.”
