As a recently launched consultancy, Circle Squared, created by a quartet of respected and experienced industry professionals, now receives the immediate validation of having been selected as Tekkorp’s exclusive partner for all areas of Technical Strategy, including due diligence.

Tekkorp hand-picked Circle Squared to tap into the decades of collective experience which the four-strong team brings across delivering large scale tech platforms and transformation

programs for the betting and gaming industry. Partners Clyde Harris, Graham Cassell, Mick d’Ancona and Peter Sherman have worked with, and for, some of the biggest names in the gaming and betting industry, including Ladbrokes, OpenBet, Paddy Power, Betfair, Flutter and Caesars Entertainment.

The Tekkorp team offers deep experience of M&A, JVs, strategic partnerships, disposals, carve-outs and fundraising, highlighted by $24bn of deal value completed in the digital gaming space. Its current and historical knowledge of the corporate strategies, personalities and M&A tactics of the buyer universe affords Tekkorp and its clients a unique vantage point from which to solve complex business issues across technology selection, product due diligence, contract negotiation, entry strategy and competition comparison.

Consequently, Circle Squared will benefit from Tekkorp’s global reach and unparalleled access to the marketplace, as well as working alongside its top tier executive team. Founded by Matt Davey, Tekkorp Capital was set up to advise and invest in public and private companies who innovate in the global digital gaming ecosystem, and has put together an enviable team of deal-makers and strategic advisers, such as the ex-head of corporate strategy and development at The Stars Group, Robin Chhabra, former CEO of William Hill Online, Crispin Nieboer, and former William Hill US Chief Financial Officer, Mark McMillan.

“Circle Squared have quickly demonstrated that their experience, coupled with a structured and common sense approach to gaming technology, makes them easy to work with and produces quality output. We look forward to continuing this fruitful collaboration across a diversity of deals and structures,” said Tekkorp Capital CEO, Robin Chhabra.

“Our consulting services across a broad range of areas already cover market-entry and growth strategy, product and technology diligence, target suitability analysis, media partnerships and vendor selection. Now the Circle Squared team will help sharpen up the technical end of these services for our clients.”

Mick d’Ancona, one of the founders of Circle Squared added: “The Circle Squared team are delighted to be partnering with the advisors at Tekkorp Capital. Tekkorp is the best in the business in their space, and we’re excited to be able to bring our insight and expertise to help support them in their advisory and deal-execution activities.

Award-winning co-host of ITV Racing signs with fast-growing London agency

On the eve of Royal Ascot, Press Box PR is delighted to announce that Francesca Cumani, the UK’s leading female racing presenter and one of the faces of ITV Sport, has joined the agency’s talent stable.

Over the next five days, the multi-lingual thoroughbred TV personality will be front and centre of the Flat racing season’s most extensive and glamorous festival coverage.

Francesca is equally well known in Australia as the co-host of the prestigious Melbourne Cup. She has been integral to ITV’s horse racing coverage for the past eight years and is an SJA Broadcast Sports Presenter of the Year winner.

While horse racing is her first love, Francesca is keen to broaden her appeal and sees the Press Box team as the ideal partner to bolster her ambitions in the UK.

Press Box PR, a fast-growing creative and digital PR agency operating in sports, consumer, entertainment, and B2B markets, launched its talent management and publicity division two years ago, with Francesca joining the likes of former Royal butler Grant Harrold and 2023 Apprentice winner Marnie Swindells.

Cumani said: “I have enjoyed a long and productive relationship with my agent James Henderson who is based in Australia for the last 16 years and that will be ongoing but I am keen to explore opportunities closer to home and put the skills I have learnt to use both within the racing world and further afield. I am passionate about the great outdoors, animals, travel, food, fashion and culture.”

Lynn Carratt, Head of Talent at Press Box PR, added: “Our talent offering is unique in that, like the remainder of the agency, the team is made up of former journalists. We approach talent management and publicity from the perspective of maximising commercial value for our talent roster and brand clients by growing and sustaining earned media coverage. We’re delighted to be welcoming Francesca Cumani to the Press Box PR family and looking forward to many exciting plans ahead.”

The talent division is part of Press Box PR’s 40-strong London team, led by founder Alex Donohue, which also includes Jack Mansell (Head of Sport), Jack Watson (PR Week 30 Under 30) and Katie Storey (Head of Consumer).
