Interview with Richard Clarke, former Senior Director of Digital Media & Comms at Colorado Rapids
Richard Clarke has recently returned from the US and a stint with MLS team Colorado Rapids. Prior to this he had been in the Premier League with Arsenal, making him possibly the only digital lead with experience in both leagues.
Richard started out freelancing with various newspapers before seeing an opportunity as digital started to change the publishing landscape and joining Arsenal in 2002.
We talked about the differences between the US and UK football cultures, how digital has changed in the 15 he has been in the industry, taking on the challenge with a new team who finished bottom in the MLS the previous season and much, much more when it comes to content. The area in which he is most passionate about.
