The ex-CSM executives partnered with Hong Kong-based TTB Partners last year, and the Group has since closed several investments, including digital ecosystem for sport InCrowd, ESG platform Ample and brand and creative agency Designroom Sport.
Of the appointment, Millward commented:
“Andrew is a world class addition to our leadership team, bringing a wealth of experience from both cricket and the boardroom to TTB Sport and our clients. His breadth of knowledge, across all facets of sport, make his insights highly valued and particularly relevant as sport’s role in society becomes more important”.
“Sport is undergoing a generational change in the way it is consumed and commercialised. In doing so, it has become an extremely attractive, highly investable, but nascent asset class.
Our aim is to support our companies and clients as they navigate these changes, linking them to new geographies, technologies and investors. We are extremely excited about the opportunities that are ahead, and delighted Sir Andrew has joined us on the journey”.
“I am delighted to be joining TTB Sport Capital at such a promising and important time for the company. Sport is being reshaped in ways we could never have imagined, and we are excited to be at the fulcrum of this change, investing in and advising businesses, technologies and founders that will shape its future. I look forward to working with Holly and Nick in building a world class company, dedicated to my great passion - sport”.
The TTB Sport Capital team is Headquartered in London.
