    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

    Limelight History

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

In 2011 I became Head of Corporate Services.

    Sports Interests

    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!

    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.
