These new additions will further strengthen the exisitng executive team. Danny Menken will continue to lead the group’s Business Development operations as Eleven Group Chief Business Development Officer. Anouk Mertens will continue to oversee all markets and business operations as v Group Chief Operating Officer. Guillaume Collard will continue to oversee all rights acquisitions globally, with the new Group-wide title of Eleven Chief Rights Acquisitions Officer.

Luis Vicente, Eleven CEO, said: “Our management restructure sees us welcome industry leading executives to the ELEVEN team and gives us the framework we need to deliver on our Eleven 2.0 strategy and plans for a new global platform this year. We’re very excited about what’s ahead and we’re looking forward to serving more fans than ever with the best live sport and entertainment in 2021.”
