Interview with the CEO of Two Circles, Gareth Balch

Gareth is the Chief Executive of one of the fastest growing and influential agencies within the sports industry in the UK. They are a data driven company who work exclusively with clubs, governing bodies and rights holders (definitely not brands!).

In our conversation at Two Circles HQ in London I found out how the name ‘Two Circles’ came about (spoiler: it’s from his 800 metre running days). Also how they work with clients, the rapid rise of the business and how they dealt with any growing pains.

We also dug into what he means by it being Day 2 for not only his company but also the sports industry. How there are so many opportunities as well as challenges yet to be faced.

You won’t find Gareth on Twitter but you can connect with him on LinkedIn.

If you enjoy this podcast then do have a listen to the other 35 interviews and our monthly edition as well. And if you are kind enough to leave a comment, rating or review then that would be amazing!

You can find me on @danielmclaren and @DigitalSportUK
