The three directors up for re-election are:

Jeremy Eaton, during his time on the board and as chair has taken the organisation as it was and turned it on it's head for the better. Under Jeremy's Chairship, the organisation has moved premises to be incorporated within the leading sport hub in the country, and guided the organisation  through a second funding cycle with a 50% increase in funds to £1.5 million introduced a new alpine pathway and developed a very successful freestyle pathway. Jeremy attends frequent meetings with chairs from other sports, Sport England and the Sport & Recreational Alliance in order to gain shared learning and to further enhance our credibility amongst other larger sporting organisations. Jeremy’s relentless and tireless efforts to ensure our sport has a share of voice within the wider  sporting community  and that snpwsport continues to grow in the right direction are a real testament to him. Jeremy will be stepping down from his Chair duties in April 2017 after five years. He aims to spend the months from September to April recruiting and handling over the mantle to a new independent chair.

Bryan Thomas, joined the board in 2012 and is our current finance Director. Bryan spends the majority of his time working on a variety of matters for SSE. Bryan can often be seen helping out and organising many events including Esskia races, club nationals, squad weekends, conferences as well as ensuring Snowsport England's finances remain healthy. Bryan works relentlessly on helping clubs secure extra funding to enhance their premises and is a wealth of knowledge on the organisation. Bryan works closely with all of the key committee’s within the sport , at the request of the board, to ensure that budgets are carefully adhere to, and plays a very active role on two of the committees, whilst his careful monitoring of the organisation over the last 4 years has ensured that SSE has gone from strength to strength. Bryan’s plans, if he were to be re-elected, are to prepare a successor  ensuring that a new finance director is fully versed in the smooth running of the organisation to ensure that the eventual handover is seamless. Bryan continues as chairman of the Midland Ski Club and is on the committee revitalising Central England Ski Association (CESA)

 Gareth Wynn, Senior Managing Director at FTI Consulting, former Director of Communications at EDF Energy, was  responsible for EDF's sponsorship of the London 2012 bid and for their partnership with the London 2012 Olympic Games & Paralympic Games.
