Edwin Glasgow QC is to become the new Chair of sport specialist arbitration and mediation body Sport Resolutions UK. He takes over from Peter Crystal who leaves the board having completed the maximum term of office allowed.
Edwin Glasgow said.
“Sport now faces very real and pressing challenges to govern itself in open and transparent ways. All competitors, in all sports, as well as sponsors and the public, are entitled to expect it to do so in ways that reflect the highest ethical standards. I feel immensely privileged to be given this opportunity to lead Sport Resolutions at a time when sport needs more than ever to demonstrate its integrity”
Edwin Glasgow continued.
“Great credit is due to the outstanding work done by Peter Crystal and before him Gerard Elias, who have led the way in providing the sport system in the United Kingdom with an independent, fair and expert adjudication and conflict resolution system”
