Analytics FC are pleased to announce that Pavel Gognidze has joined the company as Chief Operating Officer. He will also take a seat on the board.
Pavel brings with him a wealth of football and entrepreneurial experience, having spent the last 18 months as CEO of Pafos FC in the Cypriot Premier League. He had previously worked for UEFA in Switzerland at the beginning of his career but has since moved into the business side of the game. Pavel is also co-founder of in-stadium data collection and football intelligence company, Marshal Group, headquartered in Riga, Latvia.
“We’re moving into a new phase for the company,” said co-founder and CEO of Analytics FC, Jeremy Steele.
“TransferLab is being used by 25% of clubs in the Premier League as well as by clubs across 12 countries globally. We’ve successfully expanded into Women’s football and there are a whole host of products and services in development at Analytics FC HQ. As we grow we need experienced people on board who know the data industry but who also have a clear idea about how that fits into the very particular – and often peculiar – world of football.”
“Pavel ticked all the boxes for us. He has a background that spans data, football and business. It also helps that we worked together previously and built a trust in each other’s abilities to build and grow projects.”
