Give It Your Max is delighted to announce that Debs Burles has agreed to become a GIYM Trustee. Debs currently sits on The Tennis Ball Committee and comes to GIYM with a great deal of experience in events and sponsorship and so we are very fortunate to have Debs join our Trustee Board.
Debs graduated from University of West of England in 1997 and has since spent the majority of her working career in the sports, events, tv and entertainment industry. Highlights include activating sponsorship programmes for Barclays around the end of year men’s tennis finals at The O2, increasing the profile of Chefs Heston Blumenthal and Clare Smyth, running the retail offering at Eton Dorney during London 2012, management of the TV production of the ATP 1000’s series, as well as various roles at IMG (Highlights being Producing World’s Strongest Man, part of management team of The Wimbledon Shop and sponsor servicing of Senior Men’s Tennis Tour).
Debs now lives in West Sussex with husband Simon (freelance TV sound recordist) and son Alfie, and is very actively involved in village and school life. Having worked in tennis for many years, becoming a trustee of GIYM is a chance for Debs to give something back to the tennis world and she is excited about becoming involved, especially from an events and sponsorship/marketing angle.
