Strategy& has appointed a new head of its Sports practice in the UK: Clive Reeves.

Clive Reeves joins the strategy consulting firm internally, having transferred from PwC’s organisation in Switzerland, where he was a Senior Manager in its Sports Business Advisory practice. This unit helps players (rights holders, broadcasters, telcos, sponsors, marketing agencies and investors) from across the sports arena with PwC’s full suite of advisory, transactions, assurance and tax services.

Reeves focused on the practice’s more strategic consulting offerings, including corporate and business strategy, operations, commercial due diligence on deals and mergers, organisation design, and the launch of new propositions including e-sports.

His consulting work in sports – prior to PwC, Reeves worked at an advisory firm to sport organisations and a knowledge centre for the high performance – includes advising a range of sports organisations in the English Premier League, Premiership Rugby, English Cricket, the Australian Football League and the NBA. He has also worked with a number of international governing bodies, sports media companies, sports tech businesses and e-sports organisations. 

Prior to consulting, Reeves held senior roles within English football, among others as Performance Coach at current Premier League outfit Fulham and earlier at Bolton Wanderers (at the time they were active in the top-flight). 

Now at Strategy&, formerly known as Booz & Company, Reeves will lead the firm’s deals, strategy and value creation offerings to sports industry clients, and commercial due diligence services to investors and private equity firms.

Nick George, a partner at Strategy& said, “We are pleased to have Clive joining our Deals practice where his knowledge and experience will bolster our team and enable us to better support our clients in the sports sector.”

Commenting on his relocation and new challenge, Reeves added, “I am very pleased to join PwC’s UK firm and I’m excited by the opportunity to grow our sports business. Through combining my industry expertise and business advisory experience, I look forward to working with our clients to navigate a path through today’s unprecedented challenges and to build stronger organisations for the future.”

Earlier this year, Strategy& in the UK welcomed Agnes Pusca to its team. Meanwhile, in Germany, the firm last week hired Teresa Schawe, KPMG’s youngest partner ever in the country.
