Dean Marks

Business Director

  • Date Joined: 1st May 2018
I am currently working as a consultant for Blackburn Rover Football Club across the Commercial and Marketing departments ahead of the new season.

After obtaining a 2:1 BSC in Sports Development (and Business), I worked for Bristol Rugby Club as a Marketing Executive before moving to London to work in Media and Advertising. I’m currently a Business Director in the TV (AV) department where I lead a team of six across Chanel, 20th Century FOX, TK Maxx and other, and part of the department management team of 39+ people. I’ve learnt everything I wanted to apply to my desired career in professional sport.

I’m also looking at Masters courses in Sports Management/ Directorship/ CEO which I will take if I do not find a suitable position in professional sport beforehand. Or indeed at the same time if possible alongside my role.

I intend to hold a career in the governance and operations of professional sport: MD, CEO, Sporting Director, COO, etc, and understand that my next role will be a step on the ladder to achieve this.
