The Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) has appointed Ben Rutherford as its senior legal director. He will join TIU in December, ahead of its rebranding as the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) on 1 January 2021.
Rutherford joins TIU from World Rugby where he was Senior Legal Counsel and Integrity Unit Manager. During his eleven years at World Rugby, Rutherford established and headed World Rugby’s integrity programme which has been heralded by the UN, IOC, INTERPOL and the Gambling Commission.
“Ben is a global expert in anti-corruption and anti-doping in sport and has achieved great things within world rugby. We are thrilled that he will be joining us as we start on a new chapter for integrity in sport,” Jonny Gray, CEO of TIU, said.
“I have had a fantastic eleven years at World Rugby and I’m extremely proud of the work I’ve done there. It is fascinating to be at the start of a new journey in tennis with the formation of the ITIA and I can’t wait to begin,” Rutherford said.
