Sky high 02.07.14

Junior Prize Giving this year saw one of our distinguished old boys,  Robert Tansey (LGS 1982-89) return to his old stamping ground to hand out the prizes and chat with the prize-winners.  Robert was the middle of three brothers who were educated at LGS.  He is seen here with his wife Annie.

Robert joined BSkyB ten years ago as its Director for Brand Strategy and Marketing and from there became Executive Director for Sky Creative.  He was the architect of Sky’s partnership with British Cycling and, when Team Sky was formed, he became Chairman of the Operating Board and created, from scratch, the high-performance sports team culminating in successive victories of the Tour de France.  He currently is Development Director for Sky Sports and still is Chairman of Team Sky.
