Nadeem Shaikh, managing director of SMART Way Forward, is delighted to announce that he has been appointed Vice President of Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers.
The appointment has been made in recognition of Nadeem’s achievements and dedication during his 25 years with the club as both athlete and coach.
In announcing the start of Nadeem’s three-year tenure as Vice President on 24 November 2011, the club council members noted the huge contribution he has made to the club; particularly his commitment to recruiting volunteers for a variety of roles and managing and organising the club’s commitments for all London Marathon events, which generate vital funds for the club.
Over the past nine years Nadeem has also coached young endurance athletes from good club runners through to international standard. Some of whom have consistently topped the UK rankings over 800 metres, 1,500 metres and 3,000 metres in the under15, under17 and under20 age groups.
Nadeem’s former athletics coach and mentor, George Harrison, was announced as Club President and will also serve a term of three years.
“Being appointed Vice President of Shatesbury Barnet Harriers is a huge honour and I am very privileged to be given this opportunity,” said Nadeem. “Both George Harrison and I, along with all the other council members will ensure that the club continues to grow and remain successful as one of the best all round athletic clubs in the UK.”
