Eclat Media Group is pleased to announce the newest addition
to its Board of Directors, Jamie Reigle. With a wealth of experience in the sports
and entertainment industry and a track record of delivering
audience growth and engagement, Jamie is set to play a pivotal role in driving
the company's strategy and ambition as the Asian leader in sports media.
Jamie brings a background of achievement in executive roles at Manchester United, the Los Angeles Rams, and Formula E, making him a standout addition to Eclat Media Group.
Most recently, Jamie served as Chief Executive Officer for Formula E, the global electric motorsport, where he was responsible for the championship's strategic direction, operational delivery, and commercial growth. Under Jamie’s leadership, Formula E reimagined its sporting proposition, implemented technical and financial regulations to enhance the team's business model, and scaled its audience while adding Sao Paolo, Hyderabad, Jakarta, and Cape Town to the calendar and McLaren and Maserati as new teams on the grid. During his time at Formula E, Jamie also served as a board member at Extreme E, the electric offroad series, and Griiip, a sports analytics and data visualisation platform.
Before Formula E, Jamie served as the Executive Vice President of Business Operations at the Los Angeles Rams, playing a central role in developing SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park, a sports and entertainment destination in Los Angeles. Earlier in his career, Jamie spent a decade at Manchester United in both the UK and Hong Kong. During this time, Jamie served as a board member of Manchester United, oversaw global commercial and brand activities, set up the club’s operations in Hong Kong, and led the company’s IPO on the New York Stock Exchange in 2012.
"Jamie Reigle is a seasoned executive with a proven ability to steer organisations towards success," stated Mitchell Hong, Group CEO of Eclat Media Group. "His vision and industry knowledge are aligned with our commitment to innovation and excellence, and we're honoured to have him join our board."
"I am thrilled to be part of Eclat Media Group's journey," commented Jamie. " Eclat is the leading media and broadcast partner for both international rights holders and regional sports across Asia. SPOTV serves fans the sports content they crave, live and on-demand, across linear and digital distribution platforms as well as direct to consumers.
I look forward to contributing to Eclat’s strategic direction, new business initiatives, and development of sports intellectual properties as the company strives to serve passionate sports fans while adapting to an evolving media landscape.
On a personal level, I am excited to support Mitch as Group CEO. For over a decade, I have witnessed how Mitch and his dedicated team have steered Eclat Media Group to its current leadership position, and am eager to join them on the next phase of development."
