It is always one of the most popular series we run through the year and our listing of 30 Under 30 Young Leaders of Tomorrow for 2021, in association with our friends at PwC, has now reached the first ten.

We are now into the final few in highlighting 30 young leaders that are making a mark within the Business of Sport in Ireland. They will be drawn from sports administration,  sports sponsorship, sports media and other areas. Our ambition is the creation of a network of people making a real difference within our industry.

They will join the 100 who have been nominated over the past four years and there is still time to nominate someone you feel might be a good addition.

How to nominate someone you know for our list.



Stuart Bolger

Communications Executive at KPMG

Stuart Bolger is a key player on the sponsorship team at KPMG where he has worked for four years.

Following the firm’s strategic shift to golf sponsorship in 2016 – signalled by the signing of young Wicklow-native pro golfer Paul Dunne – Stuart has been heavily involved in the subsequent KPMG sports sponsorships of Cavan twins Leona and Lisa Maguire, the Irish Kids Golf Tour, the Dublin Ladies Senior Football Team, the Irish Champion Stakes Race Meeting and the 20×20 Women in Sport National Campaign.

Over the past disrupted year, he led the execution of a large content calendar to keep the brand exposure high amid a lack of live sports. This included golf trick-shot challenges for kids, mobility exercise tutorials for adults, and in-depth interviews with KPMG’s brand ambassadors.

A graduate of TU Dublin with a Degree in Marketing Bolger is currently studying for a Trinity College Certificate in Climate Entrepreneurship.

He spent two years as a project manager with Enactus and is a member of its Alumni Board.
