The British Athletes Commission (BAC) has appointed Paralympic bronze medal-winning rower Victoria Aggar as its new chair.
Aggar, who was part of Britain's mixed coxed four team that came third at Beijing 2008, worked as athlete services manager at the British Paralympic Association from 2012 to 2016 and also represents British athletes on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Athlete Committee.
She is also a non-executive director at the English Institute of Sport.
Her appointment comes with less than a year to go until Pyeongchang 2018 and new athletes joining the BAC in preparation for Tokyo 2020.
"Excited for my new role as chair of the BAC," the now-retired Aggar, a winner of world titles in 2006 and 2009, said on Twitter.
"Committed to ensuring a robust, responsive and world leading BAC for our members #dutyofcare"
Prior to competing in Paralympic sport, Aggar played National League netball.
Joining her at the BAC will be Dougie Dryburgh as vice-chair and Marc Woods as a non-executive director.
Dryburgh is an Olympic curler who represented Great Britain at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Japanese city Nagano.
He is currently chief executive of London-based pathologist Viapath and brings what is described by the BAC as a wealth of business experience to its Board.
Woods, meanwhile, is one of Britain’s most decorated Paralympic swimmers with a career spanning 17 years.
He won 12 Paralympic medals, including four golds, across five Games from 1988 to 2004.
BAC Board non-executive director Susie Rodgers will take over as chair of the Athlete Advisory Group, replacing Anna Watkins who has stepped down from the role.
Watkins will remain on the BAC Board as a non-executive director.
The BAC is an independent membership association, which represents the interests of athletes in high performance sports in Britain.
Its members are from a wide range of sports, predominantly, but not exclusively, Olympic or Paralympic, and have represented their country.
