Interview: James Grigg, International Operations at Bleacher Report

Dan McLaren caught up with one of the first employees for Bleacher Report in their London office. James has previously worked for Spectrum Strategy Consultants, Sportech Plc before going all in on a sports start-up called Fanatix.

He’s been at Bleacher Report for a year now and has built up a team of around 30 people, including 4 who work purely on their Snapchat activity. We delve into that, the lessons learned within a startup and much much more.
