JudoScotland is pleased to announce that Jodie Cox will be joining the Board as an independent director.

A keen sportswoman and sports volunteer herself, she also brings expertise in anti-corruption, disciplinary procedures, and anti-doping. Jodie is also an Independent Disciplinary Panel Member for Scottish Athletics.

On her appointment to the Board, Jodie commented “I am thrilled to be joining the JudoScotland Board as an Independent Director. The unique and exciting opportunity to actively participate in an organisation responsible for the anti-corruption, discipline and anti-doping within the sport in Scotland, will allow me to bring my experience and knowledge at an independent international sporting body to a national governing body.  As someone who is passionate about sport, I strive to make a difference and that is what I hope to do by being on the Board.  I am really looking forward to helping shape JudoScotland as we currently move into a new strategic cycle and continue the growth of the sport in Scotland.”

Marc Preston, JudoScotland Chair added “Jodie, who is originally from Carnoustie, will bring a lot to the Board as a dual-qualified solicitor with experience in the sports sector,  – and her current role as Legal Case Manager at the International Tennis Integrity Agency.   Her skills will be a valuable addition to our Board and make us a stronger team.”
