New addition to the Marketing Team, Chris George

The B1 Family is happy to announce that we are continuing to rapidly grow and provide an experience for motivated individuals that want experience within the sports industry. Three interns later, we welcome our very own Chris George to the family.

Originally from Boulder, Colorado is currently here with us for 3 months in order to fulfill school credit and in his words to “be able to have the experience of a lifetime”. Chris is currently a senior at the University of Colorado Boulder where he is working towards a double major in marketing and management.

Here at B1, Chris hopes to lend a helping hand to the marketing department by giving us a deeper understanding of the marketing strategies and campaigns within the U.S. Chris is extremely interested in what truly drives a successful business within the sports industry. Of course, he hopes to broaden his horizons by working with the marketing department.

Furthermore, Chris wanted to live in Barcelona and understand the sports industry on a more worldly level as he one day hopes to work for a national governing body such as the Olympics.
We are excited to have the opportunity to bring Chris into the team as well as have a long-lasting connection that he and the B1 family hope to keep.

“I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with such a unique and special soccer academy. I hope to add valuable information and provide the marketing team with connections and general information about how marketing is within the U.S. When I first got to B1, I instantly felt like part of the family. The work atmosphere is amazing and I am honored to be part of such a great company with a solid group of like-minded individuals who are passionate about what they do.”

Welcome to the B1 Family Chris!
