Former VP international Sponsorships T-Mobile International

"As the lead for Sponsorship in the UK for Deutsche Telekom between 2001 & 2007, Toby consistently excelled in his use of his technical knowledge, creativity and passion for Sponsorship.
In particular his leadership in driving cycling into the British market using the presence of the T-Mobile Pro Cycling team and the selection of then unknown British Riders Mark Cavandish & Garraint Thomas has clearly been a catalyst in the rise in popularity of cycling in the UK.
Personally I found the experience of working with Toby enriching and inspiring. He is one of the absolute connoisseurs of Sponsorship.”
