Following an extensive recruitment process and receipt of over 85 applications, England Hockey is delighted to announce that Mark Armitage will be joining the National Governing Body as Commercial and Membership Director from Monday 29 June 2009. 

Mark completed a Business Studies degree at Bradford University before joining British Airways straight from university.  He spent six years in various sales and marketing roles before moving to Avis UK where he was responsible for all marketing, including TV advertisements.  From there, Mark moved to Forte Hotels as Marketing Controller and thereafter Marketing Director at Forte Grand.

Mark then spent eight years at the Granada Group in their travel and TV rentals business as well as working in their technology operation.  Following his time at Granada, he worked for BoxClever in senior sales, marketing and commercial roles and as a director of various businesses.
