Tim Hadaway to join British Eventing as sports and technical manager

British Eventing will head towards the spring season with a new face at its Stoneleigh headquarters.

Tim Hadaway, who has played a variety of active hands-on organisational roles in the sport since becoming a grass routes competition in the 1980s, will join the BE team as sports and technical manager on 28 January 2002.

Working alongside British Eventing’s chief executive, Peter Durrant, Tim will hold overall responsibility for the running of events and the sport’s development as it heads into the 2002 season.

Tim said: “I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to become involved in the sport at such a critical time in its development. My role is to ensure the sport is administered and developed in a professional way.”

Tim first joined BE as a technical advisor in 1995, became director of Blair Castle horse trials in 1998, which he will oversee this year, and was part of the volunteer workforce before and during the Sydney Olympics. He also runs his own course design and event management business, specialising in competition and training courses throughout the country.

Chief executive, Peter Durrant said: “With Tim as part of the team at Stoneleigh, we have an executive structure which can take the sport forward in a dynamic and positive way.”
