FA names Pippa Grange as head of people and team development
The Football Association has appointed Pippa Grange as head of people and team development at St George's Park.
Dr Grange will lead a department which is tasked, according to the governing body, with "creating a high performance culture and psychological resilience across all men's and women's national teams."
The appointment comes in the wake of damning criticism of the FA over its handling of discrimination claims against ex-England women's boss Mark Sampson.
Sports minister Tracey Crouch last month accused the organisation of being "incapable of dealing with allegations of bullying and racism."
Dave Reddin, the FA's head of team strategy and performance, said: "I'm absolutely delighted that Pippa is joining us. We truly searched the world to find the best person for this vital role.
"I'm confident Pippa's extensive experience in sports as diverse as swimming, rugby league, AFL and netball, as well as high performing business environments, will help take us to the next level."
