On his appointment to the Board of BF, Tom said, “I am delighted to be joining the Board of British Fencing. Having advised numerous sports governing bodies on commercial, contentious and regulatory matters, this is a unique opportunity for me to lend my professional experience to something about which I am truly passionate – sports governance.
