Peter Buckley joins British Orienteering
Peter Buckley has joined British Orienteering as the Commercial Manager.
Mike Hamilton, Chief Executive says, “We are delighted that Peter has joined the British Orienteering team. The Commercial Manager’s remit is to try to increase income generation for British Orienteering without placing additional burden on members and participants. The employment of a Commercial Manager is a decision not taken lightly by the Board who believe we have to try to increase our income streams and address our dependence on funding at least to some extent. Initially the position is being funded from reserves for a period through to December 2014 although we hope the position will quickly become self-funding.”
Peter says, “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to work with British Orienteering as their Commercial Manager. For nearly twenty years I have been developing commercial opportunities within the sports & leisure industry, working on new revenue and innovative membership benefits schemes in the retail sports sector. This has given me the opportunity to work with key brands like, Nike & Adidas and many financial companies like Aviva & RBS, together we have launched successful commercial campaigns for all parties.
I have always been interested in all sports either competing or as a spectator and the chance to improve the commercial activities of British Orienteering is a challenge but one that gets my competitive juices flowing.”
Peter can be contacted via the National Office or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
