I lead Key Account Management, Contingency and Interim recruitment services at The Executives In Sport Group. Taking an active involvement in most projects we’re tasked with delivering, I also work alongside the Executive Search team to deliver senior appointments within sport.
My core focus is typically operational and technical roles within sport and I find a significant amount of my time is spent recruiting in to football, rugby, horse racing, motorsport and sports broadcasting.
My personal best
During 2018 I’ve worked on a number of senior roles within sports broadcasting and one search in particular stands out. We delivered the new Head of Engineering for DAZN which was a particularly challenging project as the skills and experienced required narrowed the pool of individuals down to a very small number. All were well regarded and very happy in their existing roles so the challenge was to engage and explain DAZN’s growth plans and how the role could be an opportunity to shape Sports OTT given the dynamic nature of the business and their ambitious plans.
We’ve built a highly capable research team identifying exceptional talent from entry through to board level. Recently we’ve delivered senior hires in countries such as Japan, America and Germany so I’m keen that we continue to broaden our geographical reach and add additional support for existing clients with global presence.
