Alex Clifton

Carn Brea Leisure Centre is looking for a new CEO following the news that Alex Clifton is stepping down this summer after nearly two decades working for Cornwall’s first leisure trust.

David Price, chair of the board of trustees, said: “After serving the trust, its customers and staff exceptionally for more than 18 years, Alex has decided that the time is right to pursue other career aspirations.

“Whilst the Trustees were naturally disappointed to learn of Alex’s decision, we fully support him and wish him every success in the next chapter of his journey.

“With the successful delivery of several projects in recent years, most notably the refurbishment of our swimming pools and expansion of our health & fitness facilities coupled with record-breaking financial results, Alex leaves behind a profitable, sustainable centre and an exciting opportunity for his successor.”

Clifton added: “It is with an extremely heavy heart that I’ve decided to step down and move on to pastures new. I’m confident that on the back of our record-breaking year, the trust has a solid foundation to deliver on the next steps of its strategic plan.”
