Position: Client Manager Sports Events, Movico

I am 32 years old and real sports freak. After completing my bachelor degree in Sport Marketing and Communication and a fantastic adventure in Canada where I worked for the Olympic Games 2010, I found a job as commercial advisor for an outsourcing company.

I started an own sports marketing agency with my girlfriend (currently my wife) and found a job at MySports, providing brand and event activations for over 170 events in 12 countries worldwide.

In 2016 I was ready for a new challenge and found this adventure at Movico. As a Client Manager Sports Events I am responsible for our current partnerships with the LOC’s of major sports events like the Tour de France, Brands (sponsors) and Media Broadcasters. I am also responsible for new partnerships, business development and concepting from a commercial point of view.

In for a talk about the future of sport events, client hospitality or event marketing? Just hit me up.
