Sports Direct selects staff board representative

Sports Direct has selected a store manager in Barnstaple to be its workers’ representative who will attend board of directors meetings. 

Alex Balacki, 30, started working for Sports Direct 13 years ago as a Saturday boy.

In a letter to staff, Sports Direct CEO Mike Ashley said Balacki will help the company “to continue to make a positive difference”.

Balacki was selected by Sports Direct staff from three candidates. He will now attend all scheduled meetings of the board over the next 12 months, the first of which is due to take place later in the spring.

A new representative will then be elected each year.
