    Marketing Director (UK)

    Limelight History

    Using mass participation to get brands and communities to meet around sport was a fascinating proposition when I joined in August 2013. Since then I have learned to understand the incredible power of mass participation and fallen for the passion and creativity of the Limelight Sports team

    Sports Interests

    Pinning down to one sport or one sport event is impossible! Sport has always been at the heart of my life – Noah, Pirmin Zurbriggen, Clyde Drexler, Federer, Zidane… The sports I practice the most regularly are tennis, skiing, cycling and hiking.

    Marketing Manager (Australia)

    Limelight History

    I came to Limelight Sports in 2011 from a Melbourne-based sports media company. With a love for all things sport and events, and a background in sports marketing, I am responsible for the creation and implementation of marketing and publicity strategy for clients and Limelight owned properties.

    Sports Interests

    Basketball! I have played since I was young, and still play weekly in a domestic competition. I can’t get past the fact that you can exercise while playing a game that you love. I’d much rather be on the basketball court than in the gym.

    Senior Project Manager (UK)

    Limelight History

    I joined in 2011 to take over project management of the Swimathon. Since then I have been heavily involved in some of our newest properties including Night Run, London Duathlon and School Swimathon. Within the Invested Properties department, I now specialize in creating and developing our owned events.

    Sports Interests

    I am a pure, unashamed sports geek. If ever I’m not watching sport on TV then I’m attempting (and generally failing) to emulate the pros in real life. In recent times this has turned into a passion for cycling and running, and an attempt to get back into the pool mean that a triathlon is next on my list

    I first started working for Limelight in 1998 as PR Manager, progressing into Account Management.

    If I have the time between studying (for a Post Graduate Diploma in HR) and looking after my child my preferences are for running and am also looking forward to trying skiing again next winter, after a second operation to mend my ruptured ACLs!

    Digital Marketing Executive (UK)

    Limelight History

    Having graduated in 2012 with a largely political background, I decided to put my number one obsession* to good use and work in sport. I’ve been at Limelight Sports now for two months and couldn’t have asked for a better environment in which to flex my digitally marketed muscles. (*cake a close second)

    Sports Interests

    One afternoon, sort-of-long ago, I found myself bored senseless with GCSE revision. Desperate to find a means of escape my mother couldn’t object to, I went for a run. Since then I’ve run in many a country, covered many a mile and secured GFA times running the London and NYC Marathons.

    Project Coordinator (UK)

    Limelight History

    I joined Limelight Sports fairly recently in December 2013 having worked initially as day staff on the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon. My time here so far has been a very busy but incredibly rewarding experience – now I can’t wait to get stuck in and actually work on our events this summer!

    Sports Interests

    I enjoy swimming and am a keen runner – I have done a half marathon but am determined to one day run the whole hog. I also enjoy group activity and attend regular Body Attack classes and Boot Camp (though my attendance in the latter seems to trail off over winter)!
