Chris Rushton


Chris became Chief Executive of Active Tameside in May of 2018 having held senior positions in Hilton Worldwide, Serco Group and GLL.

After graduating from Loughborough University with a BSc (Hons) in Recreation Management, Sports Science and Physical Education, Chris embarked on a career which has incorporated the private, public and charitable sectors of the leisure industry.

A particular interest in equality of access resulted in an MSc in the Sociology of Sports Management from the University of Leicester and an ongoing commitment to ‘healthy lifestyles for all’ permeates his managerial philosophy to this day.

‘I’m proud to lead a charity which is in the vanguard of commissioned health related interventions and delighted that Active Tameside was named UK Active Outstanding Organisation of the Year for 2018 as a consequence’.
