John joined Infrared in March 2018 and is responsible for the day to day management and delivery of AIG’s sponsorship of the New Zealand All Blacks and their Rugby World Cup 2019 program.
Since starting in the industry in 2010 he has worked in various operational roles on global activations like the FIFA World Cup, UEFA European Championships, Olympic Games and the Rugby World Cup. Before Infrared, John worked on various international sporting events including the PyeongChang Winter Olympics and in India managing host venues during the 2016 and 2017 Indian Premier League tournaments.
John’s career has created many highlights and unforgettable experiences. The achievement he is most proud of was managing the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore during the 2016 Indian Premier League season. He had to adapt to working in a unique and challenging environment while quickly gaining new skills.
As a keen sportsman, John can be found at weekends doing some kind of sport. Either exploring the hills of the Kent countryside on his bike, running around the squash court, or trying in vain to improve his golf handicap.
