First the central bank, now tennis: Canadians moving to the top of British institutions

In July we welcome Canadian Mark Carney as governor of the Bank of England, now the Lawn Tennis Association has appointed Michael Downey as its chief executive.

While Carney left his job at the head of the Bank of Canada, Downey joins from his position as president and CEO of Tennis Canada after nine years in the role.

We can't help but think that Carney has set a precedent. Unfortunately for Downey, there's no mention of a large housing allowance, let alone a personal chauffeur.
