CEO of Central Sport Announced
The Central Alberta Sport Authority (Central Sport) is pleased to announce the appointment of Scott Robinson as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Central Sport.
“A legacy project of the 2019 Canada Winter Games, Central Sport’s vision is that central Alberta will be known as a leader in sport internationally, nationally and provincially,” said Central Sport Board Chair Allan Ferchuk. “A key first step in achieving our vision is building a strong organizational foundation and we are confident that Scott’s ability to connect and lead will position Central Sport for success.”
“I am excited to start working with the Central Sport Board of Directors and I am honoured at this opportunity to help establish central Alberta as a leader in sport development, hosting and celebration and launch this critical legacy from the 2019 Games,” said Robinson.
Most recently, Robinson led the 2019 Canada Winter Games as CEO. Previously, Robinson spent 23 years with Hockey Alberta, including 10 years as the Executive Director of the Hockey Alberta Foundation.
“We recognize that these are trying times for individuals,” said Ferchuk. “A pillar of Central Sport is to support community and sport development, and we want to be the voice of sport for central Alberta as we navigate sport hosting and development opportunities post-pandemic. We are ready to make our mark and support in the rebuilding of the sport sector.
As a legacy of the 2019 Games, the 2019 Canada Winter Games Legacy Society initiated the development of Central Sport. In the fall of 2019, nine candidates were selected to the inaugural Central Sport Board of Directors. The Central Sport Board of Directors have built on the initial business plan framework and developed a multi-year strategic plan to guide Central Sport over the coming years.
