As part of Lagardère Sports’ strategy to integrate its businesses globally, and following a successful rebrand that took place earlier this month, the company has announced a unified Global Media division and a number of key leadership appointments.

Felsing’s responsibilities will include overseeing the sales and acquisitions of media rights inclusive of all businesses across Europe, Asia Pacific, The Middle East, Africa and The Americas.

In a further announcement, Nikolaus von Doetinchem has been appointed as Vice President, Media - Europe.

von Doetinchem  also joins Lagardère Sports from UFA Sports and has been in the media rights business for 15 years. Additionally, Marco Gonzalez has been appointed to the role of Vice President, Media - Key Accounts & Partnerships, Braden Clarke as Vice President, Media - Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Adam Holzer as Vice President, Media - Americas.
