Louise Agran is leaving her role as Chief Marketing Officer at the Spotlight Sports Group, home to the Racing Post, at the end of September and will be replaced by Gethin Evans, currently Digital Marketing Director.
Agran said ‘After twelve years, I have decided to take voluntary redundancy after the most incredible time working for the Racing Post and latterly the Spotlight Sports Group. It has been a total pleasure and privilege to work with such amazing people on fascinating brands and I have enjoyed more or less every single minute of it. Despite my huge affection and passion for the company, the time is right for me to move on and do something else. My very talented colleague and friend, Gethin Evans, will take over as Chief Marketing Officer for the Spotlight Sports Group from 1st October and I know he is going to do an absolutely brilliant job.’
Evans said ‘I am delighted to be taking the role of Chief Marketing Officer at Spotlight Sports Group. I believe we are set up to accelerate growth further thanks to the fantastic work Louise has done to help transform the business during her time here. From starting the digital transformation, integrating the businesses we acquired and building a high-performance culture – she leaves a formidable legacy. We have big plans across our brands, both in terms of content and partnerships and I can’t wait to get going.’
