Sports broadcaster Eleven Sports has appointed Giuliano Giorgetti as Managing Director for Italy to expand its presence in the region.
He will help to build on Eleven’s increasing revenues in the country, develop strategic partnerships and oversee day-to-day operations. Giorgetti will also head up digital and commercial partnerships at Eleven’s parent company, Aser.
Giorgetti joins the company from Italian football club Inter Milan, having previously spent several years working for rivals AC Milan.
Group Managing Director, Danny Menken, said of the appointment: “Since we entered the Italian market following our acquisition of Sportube last year, we have made great strides with our rights acquisitions, distribution and popularity amongst the fans. Giuliano’s knowledge and experience of the Italian sports media industry make him the perfect person to lead our team in Italy as we look to continue our progression.”
Giorgetti added: “I am extremely excited to take on two such interesting roles in a dynamic and fast-moving organisation. Eleven Sports has made remarkable progress in Italy, and I am delighted to be joining such a talented team.”
