    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.

    Account Director - Cycling (UK)

    Limelight History

    I joined Limelight in 2013 to grow our global cycling strategy, and develop new event concepts. My background is mass participation charity events and elite sports. For a number of years I worked for British Cycling delivering major events before moving to the Games to deliver the Olympic BMX.

    Sports Interests

    I love cycling and it’s fair to say that I’m happiest when I’m out my bike! From taking on new challenges, weekend training rides, to pootles about town, and soon to be back MTB'ing. To complement the riding this I’ve taken up pilates, and in the winter you'll find me out in the mountains skiing.

    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.

    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

    I’ll have a go at most things, but mostly I enjoy getting out for a run in the countryside, jumping on my bike or doing battle on the squash court. I also love escaping to the mountains for a ski and play in the snow!
