STA Re-Shapes Senior Management Team

STA is pleased to confirm new changes to the senior management team. As announced at this year’s conference, Zoe Cooper is moving up into a Sales & Marketing Director role and Claire Brisbourne has been promoted to Operations Director.

As of 1st November 2015, both Zoe and Claire will spearhead the management of STA alongside current Financial Director, Stuart Tanfield. All will report directly to the Board of Trustees; Dave Candler, Lee Robinson, Richard Timms and Robbie Phillips.

Dave Candler, Trustee and STA President said:

We are delighted that Zoe, Claire and Stuart have agreed to take-up these new senior roles. As a team, with a proven track record at STA and within the leisure industry, they have the skills and experience needed to lead our organisation into the future and in line with our charitable objectives.

This new composition of technical, commercial, operational and financial talent forms an integral part of our plans for the future development of our swimming and aquatics, lifesaving, first aid and pool plant programmes, which are at the heart of STA.

Our aim as always will be to ensure we continue to lead the way and provide the aquatics industry with best value, and the highest standard of service and training – and as a Board of Trustees we believe we have the right senior management structure in place to lead this charge.

Both Zoe and Claire said:

We are delighted to be given this opportunity to manage STA and its dedicated team of staff on the next stage of its growth. In addition to fully supporting our members and customers, we will be looking to further increase STA’s reach by giving more opportunities for people to access our courses and teach important lifesaving skills to children and adults of all ages and abilities.
