Andy Sutherden is one of the leading voices in the sports marketing and sponsorship industry. Having started his career at MH&P, one of the industry’s founding agencies, Andy moved to Golin Harris (formerly Paragon) and was at the forefront of what many agree helped create the template for best-in-class sports marketing: Carling’s long term football partnerships with both the Premier League and then the Football League. Andy left Golin Harristo join H+K Strategies under the powerful umbrella of WPP, where he setup and built an award-winning global sports marketing and sponsorship division boasting some of the industry’s most formidable brands including P&G, HSBC, Gillette, Team GB, Castrol, adidas and many more. Andy, who has appeared in PR Week’s Global Power Book and was named as one of the UK’s top five sports communication professionals, left H&K Strategies in 2019 to join Creative Artists Agency as their International Head of Brand Consulting. More recently, he has launched his own consulting business after training to become a certified Executive Business Coach and Non-Executive Director, giving counsel on partnership strategy, brand building and integrated communications.
