Rob Hartnett is the founder and CEO of Sport for Business, helping to connect leaders in the sports industry with those in the business community so that both sides can work smarter together.
Sport for Business was created in 2012 as a professional network of leaders that values intelligent analysis of what is working best in the commercial world of sport.
We now count organisations including Aer Lingus, PwC, Diageo, AIB, Liberty Insurance, RTE, Coca Cola, Ulster Bank, the GAA, FAI, RBS 6 Nations Rugby, Sport Ireland and the Irish Government among over 150 member organisations.

He is respected as someone who understands the relationship between sport and business and is able to articulate that well through his Daily Sport for Business news Digest and through working with member companies across a wide range of topics.
