Whisper CEO Sunil Patel said: “Increasingly, the worlds of linear and digital no longer stand alone in sports broadcasting and we have strong ideas on how digital can increasingly be used as part of our strong partnerships with broadcasters, SVODS, governing bodies and brands.
With all our productions, we aim to deliver an immersive experience for viewers and draw on the brilliance of sport to deliver emotional responses and connections. The way people view and consume sport and entertainment is constantly evolving, so it’s great to welcome Stuart to the team to help us continue to develop and maximise all of our existing and future business.”
