Event description

Description

The Rugby Business Network Scotland are proud to present another in our programme of networking events and have secured a date with the Managing Director of Glasgow Warriors, Nathan Bombrys, to hear from the inside how a modern professional rugby club works in Scotland and what plans there are for the future for this successful Scottish side. Our generous friends, PWC Glasgow, are delighted to support our continuing programme of events in Glasgow by hosting what is likely be a very popular event.

In addition to hearing from Nathan we are also delighted to say that Alister Reid of Sported will be explaining their work and how RBN members can get involved in changing lives for the better through sport.

Nathan is Managing Director of Glasgow Warriors, having taken up his post in 2011. His oversaw the successful move from Firhill to the Warriors new home at Scotstoun. Nathan is credited with a large part of the success of growing the Warriors to the club as they are today, going from 700 season ticket holders at Firhill to 5,500 at Scotstoun and from half a dozen sponsors and business partners to over 100. The Warriors sold out all home games last season (2016/17) at Scotstoun with the average crowd now over 7,000 and clamour from the supporters to increase the capacity of the ground which is likely going to increase with exciting new player signings and a new coach for the 2017/18 season.

The Warriors under Nathan have changed the face of sport in Glasgow and consistently perform at the highest domestic level, reaching the playoffs in the PRO12 in 6 of the last 7 seasons, including the successful championship winning season of 2014-2015. In 2016/17 Glasgow reached the last 8 in the European Champions Cup for the first time in the club’s history.

Nathan came to Glasgow from Scottish Rugby where he was head of commercial at Scottish Rugby where he helped to restructure the commercial programme at Scottish Rugby. Prior to moving back up to Scotland, Nathan was Commercial Director at Sale Sharks where he was part of an unprecedented period of success which saw the Northwest club’s support base increase from averages of 2,000 to 10,000 and win the European Challenge Cup in 2002 and 2005 and the Guinness Premiership in 2006.

Nathan is originally from Michigan, USA, and attended Syracuse University in upstate New York.
