DAZN Group has announced the appointment of Andrew Ryan as managing director of FIBA Media, its joint venture with the International Basketball Federation (FIBA).
Ryan joins the company from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), where he led their global media, legal and business affairs for the past three years, developing their strategy and driving innovations in digital sponsorship programs.
He has previously worked at Perform Group and founded the Bball UK Basketball League Project; an investment proposition designed to revolutionise basketball in the UK at professional and grassroots levels.
Ryan succeeds Paul Stimpson, who has moved into a new role at DAZN.
“It’s been a tremendous year for basketball and I’m thrilled to be joining FIBA Media at such a pinnacle point in its journey,” said Ryan. “I look forward to continuing the momentum off the back of a hugely successful FIBA Basketball World Cup in China and delivering new growth opportunities for a sport I’m incredibly passionate about.”
