Chief Executive - Matt Evans

I joined Active Devon as a Development Officer in January 2002 and having had a number of different roles became Chief Executive in September 2011.

A born and bred Devonian I was very proud to represent my county at youth level in both Hockey and Cricket. I am a graduate in Leisure Management and Business Studies and my professional career started as Cricket Centre Manager at Somerset County Cricket Club before spending five years as Devon Cricket Development Officer.

As Chief Executive my role is to work with the Board to determine the direction of Active Devon and to then ensure progress towards our vision - everyone in Devon active for life - by the successful delivery of our plans through our network of partners and stakeholders and our staff team.

I love to be active and as well as being a keen golfer I enjoy cycling and (occasionally!) running to work. Perhaps my most energy intensive pastime though is supporting my two daughters’ ever growing love of sport. This includes, amongst its many positives, the chance to accompany them to Exeter Chiefs’ home matches!
