British Eventing appoint new Independent Non-Executive Director

British Eventing are delighted to welcome Fiona O’Hara to the BE Board in the role of Independent Non-Executive Director (Finance).

Fiona will sit on the Finance Committee, a sub-committee of the Board that oversees the financial affairs and business management of BE.

Currently a member of the leadership team at Accenture PLC, who provide services in strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations, Fiona has over 20 years of experience in a range of senior management roles.

Bringing with her skills in strategic development, company growth and financial management, Fiona commented on her appointment; “I am delighted to be joining the BE Board and look forward to using my combination of business experience and enthusiasm for all things equestrian to the benefit of this great sport.”

A Non-Executive Director is not involved in the operational running of the company but to guide and lead the strategic direction and monitor the performance of the company. Fiona’s voluntary role of Independent Non-Executive Director means she can provide autonomous guidance and advice with no close connection to the organisation, actively engaging with the development of the strategy and monitor budgets and the performance of the company.

Chief Executive of BE, David Holmes, commented; “The Chairman and Board very much welcome Fiona and are looking forward to working with her, bringing a great deal of experience and knowledge to the Board, not only from a financial point of view but also with her commercial experience.”
