Soccerex has announced that David Davies, who held a long-serving senior role at the English Football Association (FA), has joined the business as a senior consultant.

With a long and distinguished career in the sports industry, which saw him awarded an OBE in 2006, Davies is one of the most well-known and respected football administrators in the game. He served English football for almost 13 years as executive director and head of international development at the FA. Since his retirement from the FA in 2006, Davies has maintained and developed his top network of contacts in every continent, matching Soccerex’s global business reach and reputation. He is regularly invited to assist national associations, confederations and clubs with reform and reorganisation programmes. Alongside this, Davies works closely with organisations that are committed to using the power of football for social development.

“I am thrilled to have been asked to assist Soccerex who have an enviable reputation around the world for bringing together the global leaders of the game that I love,” said Davies. “The name Soccerex is recognised in every continent, and I look forward to a long relationship with its events wherever they may be held.”

Soccerex CEO Duncan Revie added: “I am overjoyed that David has decided to join Soccerex. To have one of the most respected men in world football working with us is a huge honour and he will undoubtedly open up new opportunities for us around the world. His experience in both the football and media industries is a massive asset for us and we’re excited to be working with him in growing the strength of the Soccerex brand around the world.”
