Kelly Fairweather Appointed ITF CEO

Kelly Fairweather has been announced as the International Tennis Federation’s (ITF) new CEO.

Formerly chief operating officer, Fairweather was promoted at the ITF 2021 Annual General Meeting in Madrid in December.

On his appointment, new ITF CEO, Kelly Fairweather, said: “Our global tennis data informs our strategy for the development of our sport, our business and our fanbase.”

“These are challenging and exciting times, so we need to be bold.

“We have set ourselves the ambitious goal to report 120 million players on this planet by 2030,” he said.

Having been in his last position for four years, Fairweather is an experienced executive, with executive positions at the International Olympic Committee and International Hockey Federation.

ITF president, Dave Haggerty, said: “Together with the ITF Board and in collaboration with our regional affiliates and national members, we continue to work together to fulfil our mission to deliver a global sport which is sustainable and safe for all, both now and for future generations.”

Recently the ITF has made changes to the governance of the sport, with a focus on equality and balance of power.

“We have made great strides in making the ITF as open and transparent as possible,” Haggerty said.

“We have introduced robust good governance procedures in our commitment to Integrity, a key pillar of ITF2024,” he said.
