Chair of Trustees - Mark Lawrie

With a background in education and local authority sports development, Mark originally joined StreetGames in its infancy in January 2008, managing the national Young Volunteers programme.  

In 2011 Mark became the founding Chief Executive of the new, independent County Sports Partnership, Get Berkshire Active, where he worked on the legacy of London 2012 across the county. 

Having returned to StreetGames as Deputy Chief Executive in May 2013, when the organisation secured £20 million to deliver 1,000 neighbourhood Doorstep Sport Clubs in England, Mark subsequently took on the role of Acting Chief Executive in October 2019 and was appointed as the permanent Chief Executive in December 2020.  

Mark is passionate about the power of sport and physical activity to impact upon the lives and aspirations of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

Away from work, Mark enjoys dog-walking, mountaineering and an eclectic mix of live music and live sport.
