The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) has confirmed that its CEO Jonny Gray will be leaving the organisation later this year. Gray was appointed to the job in 2019 to oversee the formation of the ITIA which subsumed the old Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) in 2021 and as of 1 January 2022, is also responsible for the administration of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme.
ITIA Chair Jennie Price commented:
“Jonny has done an excellent job in challenging circumstances. Within weeks of attending his first tennis tournament as CEO, the entire global landscape was drastically altered due to the pandemic, and Jonny’s consulting background and change management experience stood him in very good stead during a challenging period. He leaves the new ITIA in a strong position, and we wish him well in his next chapter. On behalf of all the tennis governing bodies, I would like to thank him for his significant contribution to integrity in tennis.”
ITIA CEO Jonny Gray commented:
“It has been a pleasure and a privilege to set up and lead the ITIA at the start of its journey. Tennis is leading the way in its integrity programme, and I am thankful to the Tennis Integrity Supervisory Board and the sport as a whole for their support. My primary role as the first CEO was to oversee the change from TIU to ITIA and the subsequent integration of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme. With this completed, now is the right time to move on and hand the baton on to the next person to lead the organisation into the future.”
Gray will remain with the organisation for the coming months and details of his replacement will be confirmed in due course.
The ITIA is an independent body established by the International Governing Bodies of Tennis to promote, encourage, enhance and safeguard the integrity of professional tennis worldwide.
