The Professional Squash Association is expanding its executive team with the appointment of Laurent Cossa,Jeremy Milnes and Hannah Mason.
The trio will work alongside Chief Executive Officer Alex Gough, Chief Operating Officer Lee Beachill and Tour ExecutiveClaudia Schürmann at the PSA head office in Leeds, England.
Cossa has been part of the SquashTV team for the last three years and now joins the PSA on a full-time basis to further the media output of the Tour. He takes the title Creative Media Manager.
Milnes, a former Sales & Marketing Consultant from Doncaster in Yorkshire, is appointed to the new role of Marketing & Commercial Manager. The former Commercial Director of Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster and previously in Sales & Marketing roles at various leading racecourses in the UK, Milnes once trained as a jockey to ride in a charity race over Doncaster’s one-mile flat racing course.
History graduate Mason takes up the position of Tour Co-ordinator. An avid spectator, player and coach in various sports, Mason last year completed an 82-mile charity walk for Help for Heroes.
“Following our decision to move the PSA head office to Leeds in August last year we have been looking to expand the team of PSA employees and are delighted to announce these appointments,” said Beachill.
“Laurent has been working with PSA on a consultancy basis for some time so it was a natural transition to bring him on board full-time. He is an integral part of the Squash TV crew and also has significant experience in social media and design. He will be an invaluable asset for the PSA as we grow.
“Hannah will be working closely with both our promoters and players on servicing their needs during our busy calendar. Her duties will be very much administrative, and having already had three years of administration experience, I am sure Hannah will be an invaluable part of our team.
“Jeremy joins us with wealth of experience in his field. We see Jeremy as a key appointment as the association moves forward, and with his commercial background he will be perfectly placed to not only service our existing partner relationships but also attract further investment into the association.”
