Thrilled at being appointed as a non-executive director of the Board of Commonwealth Games England, Bhanu said: “I feel honored and excited to be a part of the Commonwealth Games England board. Having been a keen sportsman in my youth, sport has always been close to my heart.” He further added: “In 2010 I chaired the business advisory board for the [Commonwealth] Games in India, and I feel confident that my experience will contribute to the future working of the board.”

Commonwealth Games England Chairman Sir Andrew Foster welcomed Bhanu’s appointment saying: “I am delighted to welcome Bhanu to the Board of Commonwealth Games England, and look forward to working with him on our plans for Glasgow 2014.

I am certain that we will all benefit from Bhanu’s knowledge and experience.”
