I focus on operations and technology roles within sport, working across a diverse range of assignments from Stadium Directors for Premier League Football Clubs to Technology Directors / Chief Technology Officers for sports OTT platforms.
With the move towards better connected stadia and deeper fan engagement I’m definitely finding that major sports teams are investing more than ever in their own internal technology teams and realising the importance of doing so.
My personal best
One of the more leftfield assignments I’ve handled in recent times was a Head Groundsperson to look after all sporting facilities and grounds for Oxford University. They had got close to hiring on a couple of occasions and came to us to provide new impetus to their search. I carried out an extensive search of suitably impressive sporting venues / grounds and we secured an offer and acceptance from a preferred candidate within six weeks.
My biggest test
The sheer breadth of requirements that can arise when you focus on tech and operations! I’m tasked with identifying the very best talent for areas such as ticketing, AR/VR and more and with the global sports tech start-up scene never more buoyant I never know what will be thrown at me next!
To continue to deliver great talent for my clients and be seen as the ‘go to’ Consultant in sport, media and broadcast for technology and operational roles.
Total Talent Management
I thought recruitment agencies were all the same but The Executives In Sport Group proved me wrong. They are warm, professional and genuine. They really cared about my needs and what I was looking for. I’m over the moon with my new role.
