Moss, 52, comes to SSC from the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC). He brought more than 20 years of experience in high performance sports when joined the COC in March 2011 as their first director of national sport federation services.

“We are excited to welcome Ian as the new CEO at Speed Skating Canada,” Rouleau. “Ian brings a depth of experience and knowledge of sport, from developmental to international levels, that I am confident will be of great benefit to our organization as he leads us into the future.”

“I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead such a respected and successful organisation as Speed Skating Canada,” said Moss. “I trust to be able to use my unique perspective of national and international sport experiences to continue to build on the vision and operational plans already well established by the board, staff and membership.”

Moss has extensive experience in leadership roles with national sport organizations. From 2009 to his return to Canada and work with the COC in Ottawa, he was the performance director of GB Badminton and Badminton England. Moss was Rowing Canada’s executive director from 2005-2009, directing the association as rowers won four medals at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, the most of any sport.

Moss’s call to lead national sport organizations began in 1997 when he served as the executive director at Badminton Canada until 2005. He has also worked with Diving Canada, the Coaching Association of Canada and the Canadian Cricket Association.
