Hunt led Team GB at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver
Andy Hunt has been named as Team GB's chef de mission for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
It is the second time Hunt, who is also chief executive of the British Olympic Association, will lead Team GB having done so at the 2010 Winter Olympics.
He will be supported by five deputy chef de missions, including Sir Clive Woodward, and five directors.
"It gives me great confidence to be surrounded by a strong team who are all experts in their field," said Hunt.
Woodward, who led England's rugby union team to victory in the 2003 World Cup, is one of three deputy chef de missions who will focus on sport.
He will be joined by Tanya Crook, who was deputy chef de mission for Paralympics GB at Beijing 2008 and Vancouver 2010, and Jan Paterson who led Team GB at 2010 Youth Olympic Games.
Craig Hunter, who led the England team at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, will be responsible for the preparation camps while Mark England continues his role in operations.
"There is a tremendous depth and wealth of Olympic Games and sports performance focused experience across the team," added Hunt.
Britain finished fourth in the medal table in Beijing and hope to repeat that in London where nearly 500 competitors are expected to represent Team GB.
British Olympic Association chairman Colin Moynihan said: "Team GB's largest delegation for over a century will receive an unprecedented level of support leading up to and during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
"Team GB's athletes and the sports they represent will be supported at every level by individuals dedicated to performance and to meeting the opportunities and challenges offered by competing at a home Olympics."
