RPE has recruited Thomas Ogander as their new CEO. Thomas has a long experience in the event- and sponsorship industry where he started as an event marketing manager at Fritidsresegruppen in the mid 90s and has since then run his own agency and consulting business. For the past 12 years, however, he has worked in television where he, as channel manager for Viasat Motor, was involved in launching Viasat's sports channels and was Head of Business Development of the first commercial TV rights for the Olympic Games when MTG bought them.
-It is incredibly fun to be back in the event industry and, above all, at the RPE, a well-established and highly competent agency and not least with a staffing and logistics offer that is completely unique in the industry.
Thomas Ogander comes most recently from the role of head of business development and spokesman for sports and media development in a digital market at HDR, the largest TV production company in the Nordic countries. He has also worked on business development of commercial rights for Formula 1 and Formula One Management in London.
-The thing that inspires me most in the phase we are now entering is to bring with me my experiences from the TV industry, everything from content and production to digital development. Our world is constantly changing where digital evolution controls our lives and not least our experiences and consumer behaviors. It is an exciting development we have ahead of us and I am really looking forward to developing the agency and doing this journey together with the whole gang!
