John Oxley joins the Board of Directors

With over seven years’ experience as Managing Director at Active Nation and having previously held senior positions at Everyone Active and SLM, John brings a wealth of industry knowledge and experience to the company.

John says: “There is an immense amount of talent in the team at Places for People Leisure and I look forward to joining such a significant player in the leisure sector. Making a real difference to the health of the nation and encouraging more people to play sport motivates me greatly and I’m excited to see what the future holds in my Operations role.”

As current figures stand, Places for People Leisure now manage 115 facilities in partnership with 36 local authorities and this looks set to grow in 2015 as the demand for local authorities to outsource their leisure management provision continues to grow.

Chief Executive, Sandra Dodd adds: “We are delighted that John will be joining the senior leadership team. John’s input will be instrumental in supporting our ambitious growth plans over the coming months. John is highly regarded within the industry and has a great track record, most recently in transforming Active Nation into a successful leisure operator and campaigning charity. We look forward to welcoming John to the team to help us maintain our reputation as a high quality leisure management social enterprise.”

Also joining the Operating Board is new Head of Finance, Carolyn D’Costa after 12 years’ experience within the company.
