The Herts FA has named Vicki Askew as its new chief executive officer.

The new appointment will start her position on March 1.

Askew has vast experience in sports development and participation, and has been recognised with several national Sport England awards for the delivery of projects.

Her current role is sports development manager for Suffolk Sport, a county sports partnership that aims to provide high-quality sporting opportunities for everyone.

Askew said: “It gives me great pleasure to be joining the team at Hertfordshire FA in the coming weeks.

“Having worked with a number of different sports over many years, this is a great opportunity for me to focus on the opportunities and provision of football made available to the communities in Hertfordshire.

“I look forward to joining an already successful team of staff, directors and council and having the opportunity to develop the future direction and priorities for football in Hertfordshire.”

Hertfordshire FA chairman, Martin Bayliss, added: “On behalf of the Hertfordshire FA board, I am delighted to announce that Vicki has been appointed as our new chief executive officer.

“Her sport development background and leadership qualities made her an exceptional candidate for the role.

“Vicki joins us at an exciting time for football in Hertfordshire, and she will play a key part in helping us shape and deliver our strategic priorities for the years ahead.”
