Brendan Purcell has stepped down as British Rowing Director of Performance after three years at the helm. Brendan and British Rowing have come to this decision by mutual consent.
Deputy Director of Performance Pathways and Paralympic Programme Louise Kingsley will step in as interim Director of Performance.
Brendan joined British Rowing in June 2018 bringing a fresh approach and thinking to the British Rowing performance programme, one which was welcomed by many in the GB Rowing Team and across the sport.
Brendan Purcell said, “It has been a privilege to work with so many passionate, committed and inspiring rowers, coaches and support staff. I look forward to watching the programme achieve even more success in the future.”
British Rowing Chair Mark Davies said, “I would like to thank Brendan for his service and commitment to British Rowing and on behalf of everyone in the organisation I wish him all the best in his next role.”
