PA Group People: Tim, Head of Racing & Sports Betting
My job entails seeking out new revenue opportunities within the Racing and Betting sector.
PA is an integral part of the racing and betting industry and we hold key strategic agreements with a variety of organisations including governing bodies, license holders, bookmakers and media companies from around the world. On a day to day basis my aim is to build upon and maintain the relationships that are vital to these agreements and also to seek out new opportunities to expand our offering.
I also have to manage key stakeholders within these organisations to ensure they are receiving the level of service they expect from the Press Association. No day ever looks the same and although I am based in Howden, I am often on the road meeting clients and prospective clients. Since my initial position I have been the PA Sport Operations Manager, Head of Sports Photos and Head of Business Development before reaching my present position as Head of Racing & Sports Betting.
I began working at the Press Association as a Commercial Executive in 1997 and the evolving nature of the Company and the sport media environment has afforded me a range of opportunities in that time.
The variety that my job brings has always been a huge positive for me.
