Andy Hunt in front of Team GB logoJune 7 - Andy Hunt, the former chief executive of the British Olympic Association (BOA), has been appointed managing partner of the Progressive Media Group, a range of media and business information companies.

Hunt stepped down in February this year having served as Chef de Mission for Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics.

Under Hunt, Team GB secured 65 medals, 29 of which were gold, to finish third in the medals table in what was their best performance in over a century.

Prior to joining the BOA, Hunt had a successful business career within business process outsourcing, technology, consulting and marketing.

Last month Hunt was appointed special advisor to the Board of Commonwealth Games England, a part-time role to help them prepare for Glasgow 2014. 

"I am excited to be joining Progressive Media Group at this time with the opportunity to help a range of successful businesses move to the next stage of their development," said Hunt.

The announcement ends speculation linking Hunt with the chief executive's role at the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), which is due to become available later this year when Roger Draper steps down.
