Europe Active begins the hunt for a new CEO following news Andreas Paulsen will move on in 2024

EuropeActive is looking for a new CEO following the resignation of Andreas Paulsen
Paulsen was first appointed acting President in 2019 and then interim CEO at the beginning of the pandemic
He will continue to serve in post until the end of 2023 to allow for a smooth transition
During Paulsen's four-year tenure, EuropeActive launched its research centre, Think Active

EuropeActive is starting the hunt for a new CEO as Andreas Paulsen has indicated he'll be heading back to his career in public affairs and academia once his successor is found.

Paulsen, who was first appointed acting president in 2019 and then interim CEO at the beginning of the pandemic, will continue to serve in post until the end of 2023 to allow for a smooth transition.

The recruitment process will be overseen by Europe Active's board.

David Stalker, President of EuropeActive, said: “We're deeply thankful for Andreas’ service to the Association and to the industry.

"We are of course regretful to see him leave his post, but warmly congratulate Andreas on his exciting future career in public affairs and academia and we are very happy to know he will remain involved as a passionate supporter of Europe Active.

"Andreas' dedication to the industry during his four-year tenure has been nothing short of remarkable and his service will be recognised by all stakeholders in the sector.

"During Andreas’ tenure Europe Active went through fundamental renewal and transformation. It was put on its most significant growth path to date, sustained by the value delivered to members and partners."

Among Paulsen's achievements during his tenure was the launch of Europe Active's research centre, Think Active, in partnership with European universities.

The centre is designed to consistently produce evidence-based research for the sector.

Paulsen said: "It has been a hugely inspiring and educational professional experience and I am proud to pass the baton of leading this great organisation at a point where the association is much stronger, more well-connected and more impactful than where we found it.

"I know that Europe Active is well placed to maintain the momentum that has been built and go from strength to strength.

"I will work hand in hand with David and the Board to ensure a smooth transition to my successor."
