About Robin Fasel

A business graduate with 5+ years of broad-ranging experience in media, I currently work as a Senior Consultant for PwC’s Sports Business Advisory in Zurich.

I specialise in digital media, sports business, and strategy. I have produced in-depth sports marketing articles for leading publications through the media agency I founded, as well as 2 award-winning academic theses on sports sponsorship (TAG Heuer’s football sponsorship strategy) and digital media/ OTT (the shaping of the media sports content ecosystem; published by the Olympic Library).

Thoroughly fascinated by the fusion of sports, media, and entertainment, I started this blog specifically to share out-of-box analyses bridging these three converging sectors. I also regularly contribute to professional media publications focusing on new, ever-increasing ways of consuming sports (see below).
