Roger Draper

Executive chairman

Roger has been involved in the global business of sport for over 20 years and became one of the youngest CEO’s in the UK business world when he took over as CEO of Sport England in 2002.

As CEO he oversaw the £500m yearly investment into sport and was Accounting Officer for major projects such as the successful 2012 Olympic bid as well as the turnaround and completion of Wembley National Stadium. He was the architect of the transformation of English sport driving mass participation campaigns, bringing a host of international events to the UK and also leading the completion of the £120M English Institute of Sport network of high-performance facilities.

He then went on to become CEO of British Tennis where he grew the turnover of the business by 45% thanks to new major global TV and commercial deals. When he started in 2006, the GB men’s tennis team were ranked 53rd in the world and when he left the role 7 years later, not only had Andy Murray become the first British Wimbledon champion for 77 years but GB were ultimately ranked No.1 in the world and became Davis Cup champions.

After a recent spell acting as Super League Executive Director, he is now working as a global business advisor for BCG (Boston Consulting Group), advising Governments, Federations and Sports Clubs around the world on transformational change projects. Roger is also a non-executive director of a number of businesses in the UK and Europe.
