The Executives In Sport Group (EISG) have named Kim Dando as their new Commercial Director.

Formerly Commercial Director at London media search firm round8, Kim joins the sports recruitment search firm’s senior management team to drive further growth of their sports media, content and digital division. The role will also provide leadership, support and advice across the company.

Kim commented: “It’s a wonderful time to be joining a sports recruitment practice given the ongoing convergence of sport, media and entertainment. Traditional sports rightsholders are reinventing themselves as story tellers, realising that mobile is often first screen for fans. They’re creating and distributing content in new and innovative ways and I can’t wait to get started.”

Managing Director, Darren Simmons, added: “We’re really excited to have Kim join our team. Her background in media perfectly compliments our existing team’s skills and her arrival couldn’t be better timed as we’re picking up more and more media and digital search assignments with sports rightsholders and broadcasters.”
