With over 22 years' experience developing successful, bespoke strategies across the sports, leisure, and recreation industry, The Pitchmark Group is delighted to announce Matt Bartle's appointment as Head of Commercial Strategy.
In light of the Group's recent site move to Emerald Park, Bristol, Matt's acquisition comes at a great time as he will be responsible for improving the company's commercial strategy and supporting its growth.
Over the last two decades Matt has held senior positions within The Football Association (The FA), The Football Foundation; roles that have required him to work effectively with key stakeholders, local authorities and Parliamentarians to secure additional funding to support strategic organisational priorities, initiatives and programmes. In 2017, Matt founded Tri-Sport Consultancy Limited, a successful sports infrastructure and master planning company focussed on supporting public and private sector entities to create or improve their sporting assets.
The experience Matt has gained from working on projects like 'Pitch Power', as well as leading strategic identification and development of grassroots infrastructure, enables him to understand the needs and requirements of clubs and organisations in the sports turf industry today.
Speaking on the company's newest recruit, Sales & Marketing Director Darren Rodman commented: "We're extremely pleased to welcome Matt to The Pitchmark Group family.
"We knew Matt's knowledge and expertise were a great fit for the company after meeting him, sharing our values, and the Group's vision for the future. With great success overseas, the company received the Queen's Award for Enterprise in 2019, and our expanding customer base continues to demonstrate great potential in the UK, which is why we needed the right person to continue supporting them.
"The vast experience Matt brings to the Pitchmark Group will prove invaluable to all of us, and it has been great to welcome him to our new premises for coffee and breakfast this month, giving him the chance to meet his new colleagues," Rodman said.
