      Born and bred in Wales, Craig’s entrepreneurial spirit was evident from an early age. Within days of graduating from the University of St Andrews in Scotland with a Mathematics and Physics degree, he co-founded a business with a fellow graduate, which specialised in bringing interactive learning to visitor attractions and education institutions across the world.

      Starting a company at just 22 years old was a step into the unknown, but it paid off. He grew the business for ten years, winning various awards including Entrepreneur of the Year in the process, before exiting to follow his burning passion for sports and technology.

      He joined Deltatre’s London office as a Commercial Manager in 2013. In addition to forging relationships with new clients, Craig was assigned to lead the technology setup for Fox Sports Asia’s new studio in Singapore, which also required the setup of Deltatre’s office in Singapore – the dawn of Deltatre’s Asia-Pacific expansion.

      He continued to rise through the ranks, and expanded Deltatre’s already strong reach in Asia. In 2016, Craig moved to Mumbai and spent two and a half years establishing a regional development hub and growing the business.

      Setting up India tested Craig’s entrepreneurialism to the limit. “It is the toughest yet most rewarding challenge in my career to date, so I am very proud to continue to be a part of what we have created in Asia – we have an incredible team,” he says.

      In 2018, he relocated to Singapore to be more central and to better support the ever-growing client base. This included the Asian Games, second only to the Olympics in terms of scale, where Craig secured Deltatre’s first major multisport sponsorship deal and led the relationship to ensure a successful digital delivery to the billions of fans in Asia.

      Now, as VP, APAC Business Development and Revenues, his role focuses on the Group Commercial strategy to grow the Deltatre portfolio across sport and entertainment. “Asia is a fascinating place to work. It is a smorgasbord of culture, ethnicity, and diversity and pushes you to become a more balanced individual,” he says.

      A keen golf, rugby, and skiing fan, he also enjoys rock climbing and taking part in endurance races like Spartan and Survival of the Fittest. Craig supports the UK-based charity Help for Heroes, which helps injured servicemen and women.
