Eurosport CEO “joins Facebook” to push global sports deals

Peter Hutton expected to lead live sports business at the social network

Facebook has reportedly poached Eurosport CEO Peter Hutton to lead its charge into live sports broadcasting.

No official announcement has been made yet, and it is thought that Hutton will not take up his new post until after the Winter Olympics.

Hutton has been at Eurosport helm for three years and led the broadcaster in its successful bid to broadcast the Olympic Games across Europe. He has also been a co-chief executive at MP & Silva, where he negotiated rights deals for the FIFA World Cup, among other major properties.
