SVG Europe welcomes new sponsor 808 Talent
SVG Europe is delighted to announce a new addition to its ever-growing roster of OB/SI/Other category sponsors in the form of 808 Talent. The company is a specialist international recruitment consultancy committed to finding the very best C-Level, Director and Senior management professionals for its clients within the broadcast and sports media technology markets.
Alongside its traditional recruitment services, 808 Talent offers ad-hoc consultancy to clients seeking additional advice regarding HR and staff retention strategies.
Its founders, Ben Swanton and Alan Jones, bring a combined 30 years experience specifically within the Global Sports Media Technology markets. Swanton brings 15 years of recruitment experience having completed assignments in more than 50 countries worldwide within the broadcast, sports, and telecommunications industries. Jones brings 15 years of industry knowledge and contacts within sports, having worked at the EBU on some of their most prestigious global accounts, including Formula 1, UEFA, IMG, Sky, NBA, and the PGA Tour.
Commenting on the latest development, Swanton remarks: “Joining SVG Europe as a sponsor was a natural progression for us to demonstrate our increasing commitment to the sports media technology industries. We pride ourselves on our collaborative and consultative approach, but more important than this for our clients, is our understanding of the market and its trends. In attending future SVG Events, the value of the content they provide, as well as the networking opportunities, will enable 808 Talent to continue delivering the very best service to its current and future clients.”
808 Talent continues to work closely with leading technology vendors, services providers, and sports federations within Sports Media, with its most recent successful assignments being with Avid Technology, SIS LIVE, Euro Media Group, Fédération Française de Tennis, IMG and Eurovision.
