Mark Blundell

For more than three decades Mark Blundell has honed his expertise in the upper echelons of elite global sport, firstly in a professional sporting career, then TV pundit and in more recent years, as a successful businessman. Mark started his sporting career at just 14, and for nearly 20 years he competed at the very top of world motorsport, including Formula One, IndyCar and World Rally. His wins even include the prestigious Le Mans 24-hour endurance race. From 2001 through to 2008, he was integral to ITV’s multi BAFTA award winning presenting team for Formula One.  During all this, Mark started up his own property company and over the last seven years, has been representing athletes particularly in motorsport. He is also a non-executive director at Lloyds insurance brokerage, Ellis Clowes and continues to be a proud ambassador for Range Rover.  A keen businessman, Mark realised that with his experience, knowledge and connections, it was time to start a new chapter in his life and launch an athlete management and sports marketing agency, built around his core values in sport.
