The role will work closely with the EA High Performance Para-Equestrian Panel and the EA High Performance staff.

Nick brings with him extensive experience in the sporting sector including over 25 years’ engagement with Government supported sport programs where he supported them to deliver desired performance outcomes and ensured that the Government’s investment interests and requirements were met. This also includes 16 years as a Performance Manager and Consultant at the Australian Institute of Sport, as well as considerable experience in Paralympic sports and multiple attendances at Olympic and Paralympic Games.  

EA High Performance Director, Chris Webb, said:
