    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.

    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.

    Financial Controller (UK)

    Limelight History

    I am the head of finance at Limelight Sports. I most enjoy the interaction with my colleagues. I like the variety that each project brings. Occasionally the Experience department will let me out of the office to help out on one of their events. Fun, fun, fun!!!

    Sports Interests

    I like running for fun and in the spring to summer months I run home at least once a week – covering 13+ miles. I love the gym and you can find me in my local gym at least five days a week, working on strength training or maintaining my cardio levels.

    Limelight History

    I’ve been with Limelight since 2007 and have worked across a range of departments and been involved with some of our highest profile events. Highlights for me include Nike Show Your 5, Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon and Nike Chance… Did I mention the Nike Chance World Tour?

    Sports Interests

    If you can win or lose I’m interested. I love to go further and push harder. Out of the office you’ll find me on my bike, smashing a squash ball about or with a board strapped to my feet falling down a mountain.

    Account Coordinator (Australia)

    Limelight History

    Worked a few events whilst at uni studying engineering. After graduating saw it as a great opportunity to be a part of a relatively small team compared to most engineering firms, allowing me to really have an impact on my workplace rather than just be a number in an office.

    Sports Interests

    Loves gridiron, playing, coaching and watching. Played for about 5 years, playing in 3 Vicbowl/championship games, and winning two. Enjoys getting on the bike and most outdoor activities.

    Account Director (UK)

    Limelight History

    Since joining in 2006, I continue to be inspired by the passion and dedication of our participants as well as my colleagues. My role now focusses on the long term growth and development of the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon and London Duathlon.

    Sports Interests

    In search of some ‘me time’ away from my children, I took up running and completed my first half marathon in September. The recent tube strike was a real reminder of why cycling is so great, now I just need to upgrade the Apollo...

    Sports Interests

    Self-confessed adrenaline junkie when it comes to skiing and wakeboarding. However in a more day to day environment I always love to run and cannot deny my love for tennis with it being my number one sport since the age of 5.

    Marketing & Communications Manager (UK)

    Limelight History

    I joined Limelight Sports in 2013, and it’s been an amazing experience since. Great moments, learnings and above all great people. So far I have seen the first SwimBritain series come to life and been part of the incredible Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon.

    Sports Interests

    Nothing better than a good gym session to finish the day. And nothing better than some fresh powder snow to shake off that winter rain! Other than that, I’ll take on any good excuse to spend the day outdoors when the weather allows it.

    Limelight History

    I started at Limelight Sports in August 2011, when I started we had a small team of 3 in the Melbourne office and 1 in our Sydney office. From there we have grown, and moved to a larger office in the process. I have been lucky enough to have worked across a large number of projects, from small scale one day events to large scale major campaigns. I manage the Nike running account at present which means I am immersed in the Nike world and all the excitement and challenges it poses. Currently I am leading on the Nike She Runs event and Limelight’s internal IT requirements and digital team. Throughout my time at Limelight I have been involved in charity events, running events, and community events, digital campaign’s and have a lot of diversity in my roles.

    Sports Interests

    My favorite activity when I have free is a mix of adventure sports like mountain biking, stand up paddle boarding on the bay in St Kilda or down in the coast on the Great Ocean Road. Skateboarding, especially downhill has always been a passion of mine especially down the coast with big sweeping hills with friends

    Commercial Partnerships Manager

    Limelight History

    I joined Limelight in April 2013, previously working in partnerships at the City of London Corporation. Growing up Michael Jordan stood out for me as a true sports icon and even from a young age I was fascinated by the relationships between brands and athletes. Working as part of the commercial team has given me the opportunity to work on some incredible projects with amazing brands as well as fulfil a dream of working with Nike.

    Sports Interests

    Coming from Durham in the North East of England naturally you either become a Newcastle or Sunderland fan, but my first love was the Chicago Bulls. I enjoyed playing Basketball from a young age and it was only later in life my love blossomed for football. I have completed the Great North Run on two occasions and enjoy running regularly.
