Natalie Dunman has been appointed performance director for skeleton at the British Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association (BBSA).
Dunham had served in the position on an interim basis since September last year and has now been appointed permanently following a "thorough and extensive search for the right candidate," according to BBSA chairperson Joanna Poulton.
She oversaw the British skeleton team during the 2018 to 2019 season, where the squad won 26 medals across four separate circuits.
Dunham will be tasked with running the BBSA skeleton programme in the build-up to, and during, the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing.
"Natalie’s appointment is a really positive step for the BBSA and for our Skeleton team as we look for more medals at the next Olympic Winter Games," Poulton said.
"We undertook a thorough and extensive search for the right candidate to take on the role permanently and Natalie’s vision for the programme shone through, both at interview and throughout her 11 months with us to date."
Dunman joined the BBSA on a secondment from her role as UK Sport head of performance pathways.
She took over from Andi Schmid prior to the start of the last campaign following his decision to step down after 17 years as skeleton performance director.
"I'm delighted to be taking on the performance director role on a permanent basis and to be leading the skeleton programme through to Beijing 2022," said Dunman.
"This is a special group of athletes and staff and I know they will continue to work hard to implement the vision we have for further success, not just at the next Winter Olympic Games, but at a World and European level over the coming seasons."
