NEW COMMERCIAL DIRECTOR DAVID BARTLETT APPOINTED
Sporting Chance have appointed David Bartlett as their new Commercial Director. David has taken over the role with the main objective to promote and expand commercial activity in order to support and accelerate the growth of the charity. David will oversee the commercial department which will have overall responsibility for marketing strategies, event management and corporate partnerships.
David has joined Sporting Chance following over a decade working in professional sport as a Physiotherapist. David graduated from the University of Nottingham before going on to obtain a Masters in Sports Medicine from Queen Mary University, London. He worked within football at Arsenal Women and Tottenham Hotspurs before moving to Middlesex Cricket in 2014. Following 5 years at Lord’s, including winning the County Championship in 2016, he took the role as Head of Medical at Gloucestershire in 2019 and played a key role in negotiating the successful return of county cricket through the COVID pandemic. In 2021 he was appointed Physiotherapist for the Welsh Fire in the inaugural Hundred ball tournament, a role he will continue alongside his work with Sporting Chance.
David’s direct experience working on the ground in professional sport has led him to understand the needs of the athlete both physically and managing their mental health.
