iSportconnect is delighted to announce Brighton & Hove Albion CEO Paul Barber as the latest panellist for the event.

Paul Barber (pictured below) has been the CEO of English Championship club Brighton & Hove Albion since 2012 and has been involved in sport for almost two decades.


Barber began his career in the sports industry working as an adviser to The Football Association in 1996 before becoming its first Director of Marketing in 2000 before spending almost six years at Tottenham Hotspur as Executive and Non-Executive Director later in his career.

Barber also spent time abroad in North America as he took up a role as the CEO of Major League Soccer franchise the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Previously Barber had major roles outside of sport, most notably as the Chief Executive Officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Ogilvy & Mather, one of the largest marketing communications companies in the world.

Originally starting in London but now with an impressive international roster, iSportconnect Directors’ Club events are exclusive gatherings of director level delegates, organised around a Question Time-style discussion with a panel of well-established executives from the sports industry.

Michael Cunnah, Chairman of iSportconnect, said: “We are delighted to have Paul on the panel for the event as he has proven himself as a leader in the football industry and will have some valuable insights to pass on during our discussions. His presence on our panel will ensure that it will be a great event.”
