"Michael is a hugely respected figure within British sport and he will be an invaluable addition to our team," LTA Chief Executive Scott Lloyd said. "He combines a rare understanding of elite performance culture with a formidable record of helping sports deliver better results across the whole of their performance programmes. These skills will complement the existing tennis knowledge we already have at the LTA and he will bring significant experience, expertise and challenge to our strategy.

"His main responsibility will be to lead the continued development and delivery of the performance strategy for the LTA player pathway. This management role requires experience of running successful performance programmes at a world class athlete level in order to enable and empower the network of national, regional, and local coaches who work with the very best players across Britain to inspire and develop them to the top of the world’s game."
