    Project Coordinator (UK)

    Limelight History

    I started at Limelight Sports in January 2015 having come from Nike where I was a part of the EKIN team. That role was heavily product focused but with a lot of involvement with brand events giving me an insight into how events work and this where my passion for sports events was born.

    Sports Interests

    I’ve always been active and as a youngster I did track and played football and basketball. Now I’m all about running. I’ll be running my first marathon in Berlin on 27/9/15 and Nike Training Club which I absolutely love!

    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.
