Wimbledon finds its perfect match

The All England Lawn Tennis Club – home of the Wimbledon Championship – has appointed Time Inc veteran Richard Atkinson as its new finance director

Atkinson, who will formally take over from the retiring Tony Hughes in June,
joins the club at a crucial period of intensive capital investment in the
Wimbledon
infrastructure. The club is preparing to overhaul its iconic Centre Court and
install a roof over the arena by 2009. Atkinson joins Wimbledon after 15 years
with Time Inc, where he served as chief financial officer and executive vice
president in New York, and president of the company’s London office.

Ian Ritchie, All England Club chief executive, said Atkinson’s appointment
came at a crucial point in Wimbledon’s history: ‘Richard’s expertise and
experience will be vital in continuing to ensure we have a successful and solid
business platform.’

Atkinson said he was ‘thrilled’ to be a part of the Wimbledon ‘sporting and
business success story’.
