Adam Freeman-Pask Appointed CEO
We are thrilled to announce today that Adam Freeman-Pask has been appointed as the new CEO, taking over from Steve O’Connor this summer. Adam is a highly respected figure in the rowing community and has extensive experience working in the sports sector.
Adam is no stranger to the world of rowing. He started rowing at the state school, Windsor Boys’ and has an impressive rowing track record, having represented Great Britain as part of the London 2012 Olympic Squad, achieved medals at both World and European Championships, as well as winning the Wingfield Sculls, and being a Steward of Henley Royal Regatta. Following his competitive career, he helped establish a rowing programme at Future Hope orphanage in Kolkata, India.
Adam’s career outside of the boat is equally impressive, working in business consulting and latterly, senior roles at Sport England as Head of Partnerships and Head of Digital Innovation.
Reflecting on the appointment of his successor, Steve O’Connor said, "It has been an honour to serve as the CEO of Fulham Reach Boat Club for the past 10 years. I am proud of the charity’s growth, the impact we have made in the community and have no doubt that Adam’s appointment will catapult the charity into an entirely new chapter of growth.”
On his appointment, Adam Freeman-Pask said, “I am thrilled to be taking over as CEO of Fulham Reach Boat Club and I am very grateful to Steve for his leadership and commitment throughout his 10 years of service.”
Adam added, “Steve leaves behind a charity with solid foundations, and a team of dedicated staff and volunteers that have been doing incredible work to make rowing accessible to all. The charity has become a flagship of inclusion in the sport of rowing and is a valued asset of the local community. I look forward to building on Steve’s legacy and taking Fulham Reach to new heights.”
Adam's appointment as CEO will take effect this summer, with the exact date to be confirmed.
