Gareth Balch

Chief Executive

Gareth Balch co-founded Two Circles following a successful athletics career, representing Great Britain in the 800 metres.

Transferring his passion and energy to the business side of sport, Gareth’s early career involved helping sports organisations such as Manchester City grow their commercial revenues, before in 2011 – and at the tender age of 28 – he created Two Circles, an agency for the digital age, borne out of a desire to build direct relationships with sports fans using data.

In the early years of Two Circles, when Gareth was Managing Director, he led the delivery of client work and helped revolutionised the UK sports landscape through the data-driven approach – recognised in 2014 when Two Circles was named Agency of the Year at the prestigious BT Sport Industry Awards, and acquired by the world’s leading advertising group WPP a year later.

Since 2015 Gareth has been Chief Executive of Two Circles, his unique style of leadership and infectious enthusiasm for sport, staff and clients providing the driving force for the company’s rapid growth, revenues growing by 400%, its global footprint expanding to over 150 staff across four offices, and client base reaching over 100 of the world’s leading rights-owners.
