We know that behind good data is a team of great people. We are proud of our team at Scout7 - a team which incorporates a broad range of technological expertise as well as first-hand experience of player recruitment and development from across the professional football industry.

Mark Ansell Chairman

Mark has been Chairman of Scout7 since its beginnings and having served as Deputy Chief Executive and Finance Director of Aston Villa Football Club, brings considerable experience of the day-to-day requirements of a professional football club.

By background Mark is a chartered accountant and previously spent over 20 years as a partner in Delloites and its predecessors, where he served as a Managing Partner and Head of Corporate Finance. He now has a small portfolio of private and public company appointments and brings valuable business expertise and network to his role at Scout7.

Lee Jamison Managing Director

At the turn of the century, Lee had the foresight to recognise how the changing nature of technology and information would revolutionise sharing and distribution across all kinds of industries, including professional football.

Having applied this logic to the business of player recruitment and player development, Lee has now grown Scout7 from a small team in Birmingham, to the global operation it is today, working with over 230 clients spanning four continents.

Bradford Griffiths Operations Director

An Aussie born-and-bred, Bradford comes from engineering stock having spent his early career working as a senior engineer for Telstra. Following a period of backpacking around the world in the late 1990s, he finally settled in the UK working on a number of large-scale IT projects.

Bradford joined us in 2009, where he now provides the vision and strategy for our next generation of products. If you access your Scout7 application on the go today to obtain crucial information via your tablet, you have Bradford to thank for making it possible!

Stephan Hanke Head of Sales

During a 17-year playing career that took in spells with eight clubs including Bayer Leverkusen and FC St. Pauli, Stephan established a reputation as being the ultimate team player. This hasn’t changed since he joined Scout7 shortly after his retirement in 2007.

As Head of Sales, he oversees our global client team. His knowledge and insight of the game, from grass roots through to senior level, mean that if you are interested in knowing more about how our state-of-the-art platforms can support your operation, then Stephan is your man.

Our team is made up of left brains, right brains, programming gurus & footballing nuts.

Between us, we continuously drive technological innovation for our clients and their football businesses.
