AC Management, the event organiser of the 32nd America's Cup, today appointed David GALLEGO as the Director of Institutional Relations for AC Management in Spain.
"By bringing the America's Cup to Europe for the first time and in particular by nominating Valencia as the Host City we have created an exciting set of opportunities all around us. We are delighted to have appointed David GALLEGO to help us manage the relationships associated with developing the project that we have before us,"
said Michel BONNEFOUS, CEO AC Management.
Having worked in sports marketing and management for the past 10 years Spanish- born David GALLEGO brings with him a wealth of specific talents and experiences (UEFA Champions' League, Olympic Games). As Managing Director David GALLEGO comes most recently from the young sport of Beach Soccer which has, in less than five years, consolidated to having its own European League.
"I am extremely excited about my new position. Being responsible for the Host City relationship for an event as prestigious and important as the America's Cup is a major task but something for which I am particularly motivated. This is the first time the America's Cup event organiser has had to work in a 'foreign' country and it is my role to coordinate and run this challenging situation,"
said David GALLEGO.
Based in Valencia, the Host City for the 32nd America's Cup, Europe's first, Gallego will be responsible for the relationships with local institutions, company establishment in Valencia and implementation of the communications strategy.
