As the new managing director of UEG’s UK office, Collins will focus on helping clients pivot into pop culture through sports and entertainment verticals. Collins brings 20 years of sports sponsorship and PR experience to UEG, having worked on both the client side and at agencies bringing to life campaigns around major sporting tournaments including Budweiser’s FIFA partnership and MasterCard’s Priceless Rugby World Cup campaign.
“Our people hail from every facet of our industry that sets the cultural agenda, and their deep expertise is our formula for success,” said Jarrod Moses, founder and CEO of UEG. “Tim, Tom and Michael are perfect additions to our executive team. Their hires represent our continued investment in the areas of sports and licensing, as well as our commitment to providing exclusive intel and access to clients on a global scale.”
