Gareth Balch

Position: CEO and Co-Founder, Two Circles

Gareth co-founded Two Circles following a successful athletics career, representing Great Britain in the 800 metres.

Transferring his passion and energy to the business side of sport, Gareth’s first industry experience involved helping sports organizations such as Manchester City grow their commercial revenues, before in 2011 – at the age of 28 – he created Two Circles, an agency for the digital age, borne out of a desire to build direct relationships with sports fans using data.

In the early years of Two Circles, when Gareth was Managing Director, he led the delivery of client work and helped revolutionize the UK sports landscape through a data-driven approach – recognised in 2014 when Two Circles was named Agency of the Year at the prestigious BT Sport Industry Awards.

Since 2015 Gareth has been Chief Executive of Two Circles, his unique style of leadership and infectious enthusiasm for sport, staff and clients providing the driving force for the company’s rapid growth.

Currently Two Circles has a global network of teams working from London, New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Bern with a client base of over 150 of the world’s leading rights-owners including the Premier League, NFL, UEFA, Formula 1 and Wimbledon.
