MEET THE TEAM:
Behind the fancy job title is a real person, so feel free to get in touch
Our founder Mack is the father of More Is In You and the driving force behind Threshold’s culture. His passion for what we do is immense and his balance between work, family and play is inspirational. This is more than can be said for his balance in his kayak.
Nick is driven by Threshold’s simple purpose of supporting people to fulfil their potential. This extends from those taking on our events to the team he feels honoured to lead each day. He believes in going with your instinct (especially when backed up by data) and likes his cocktails like his fancy dress; high impact.
Tariq heads up Threshold’s operations and oversees the delivery of our growing portfolio of amazing outdoor adventures. His background prior to Threshold had him leading expeditions and overland safaris on five continents and he has organised some of the UK’S largest and toughest endurance events.
Penny’s own drive and enthusiasm sets the benchmark for her Account Management team. Although she’d never tell you, she used to represent GB with an oar and she is one of those rare people who combines huge ambition with support and nurture for all those around her.
Calvin oversees Threshold’s marketing strategy across our own events portfolio. Having been in and around the cycling industry for 10 years, he’s developed marketing and business strategies for some of the UK’s leading brands. When not delving into the latest campaign data, you can often find Calvin running (rather slowly) around a hockey pitch or taking on the trails by foot or bike.
With a brilliant banking career at the likes of Goldman Sachs, Andrew brings financial nous to Threshold. Never one to miss a challenge he is often first to be throwing shapes on the dance floor and already has several Threshold finisher’s medals to his name.

When not outside running, you’ll either find him at Spurs or on the football pitch himself, barking orders from centre half.
Associate Commercial Director
You’ll meet Pip within the account management team, looking after our Threshold charity partners and participants. An imaginative flare and energetic spirit, she takes this onto the netball court or invests in supporting her beloved Leicester Tigers. Never without a tuneful song to serenade the office, we are wondering why we ever invested in communal speakers!
Connie manages the operational side of the Threshold Trail Series, ensuring our incredible events can take place in the best ways possible. Outside work Connie loves to get outdoors, taking part in almost any challenge that presents itself. She’s taken part in a 350 nautical mile race across the Arctic, done a cycle sportive on a tandem in a hurricane, run marathons and led charity treks and bike rides all over the world.

When not on an event site (her favourite place to be) Jenny loves anything outdoors- from paddle boarding to netball to tennis. Fuelled by chocolate and living for sunshine Jenny can’t help but organise her days when outside of the office, even making running orders used as holiday itinerary’s – no, really!
Senior Account Manager

Georgia is a self-confessed adventurer & sport enthusiast, pizza lover & espresso martini expert.
