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.
