Squash BC is excited to announce Colin Latchford as our new Executive Director, effective August 23, 2021. Colin has relocated to Vancouver from Ontario and brings more than a decade of sport industry experience to the organization. His past roles have included responsibilities ranging from provincial sport development, to program design and management, to performance and grassroots coaching.
The bulk of Colin’s career has involved another racquet sport, tennis. His experience with tennis has allowed him to work in three provinces and even the Caribbean. Recently, he managed community development, coach education, and digital marketing for Tennis Saskatchewan, while leading the province’s largest tennis facility as its Director of Tennis. Colin also brings robust academic credentials to the role, including graduate education in Sport Management and a recently-completed Master of Business Administration in Innovation and Technology.
Colin is excited to meet, get to know, and work with Squash BC’s staff, board of directors, volunteers, and community at large. When asked about his new role, Colin said, “I jumped at the opportunity to take on the challenge of leading an organization like Squash BC. I believe I can make a meaningful impact towards achieving the organization’s strategic objectives, while working to grow and develop the sport and community across British Columbia.”
