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.
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.
(currently on maternity leave)
Cara is responsible for all things marketing. She has a love for the outdoors and you’ll most regularly find her playing hockey or taking on a new sporting challenge. She is competitive at heart, passionate and a real asset to the team.
Event Director – Client Events
Louise is our Event Director for Client Events. She comes with a wealth of knowledge of sporting events in the charity sector. In her spare time Louise likes to keep fit, compete in the muddiest events and discover new amazing parts of the world.
Jenni is blessed with a wonderful northern charm and understatement. She’s solid as a rock, instantly affable with everyone and will surprise you every now and then by casually dropping in the news that she’s doing an Ironman or similar. As you do.
Associate Sales Director
Will heads up our sales team, with a focus on developing new events, sponsors and partners within the corporate and charity sector. Outside of work he is a keen footballer and skier, and can often be found at White Hart Lane – or on the dancefloor.
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!
Senior Account Manager
Not to be confused with a lovesick reality TV star, our favourite Islander Lucy was born and raised on the IoW. As the sailing capital of the world (fact) it’s where her events career began. Top class at unravelling knots with a smile on her face she’s the cornerstone of the Sponsorship Team. Lucy diligently guides our headline partners towards their objectives. Googlesheets is her middle name.
Associate Account Manager
Multi-lingual Olly sits within the Account Management team and supports Clients to deliver bespoke events both in the UK and abroad. Her background in participant communications means she’s a ninja for the detail but can on occasion fail to mention important gems like the fact she was an extra in the 11th highest grossing film of ALL time or that she once auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent.
Sales Operations Executive
Resident Mancunian Mark (he’s from Cheshire really) is part of the new business team. He works closely with the corporate teams, partners and sponsors on our public events and helps to develop new bespoke event ideas. In his spare time you can find him playing football, on the slopes or hitting the links. Though we all know he’d rather be anywhere that Westlife are playing.
Chris is always on top of the latest marketing trends to ensure everyone hears about our great events. Since joining Threshold he has taken to trail running and has completed Race to the King and Race to the Tower.
Emily looks after all participant communications for Threshold Events and ensures all participants are ready and prepared for their incredible challenge. Most at home when out walking in the Northumbrian countryside, you will often find her outdoors or in the pub watching rugby with friends and a couple of G&Ts.
Michelle is the oil that makes the Threshold machine run smoothly. She’s responsible for everything from flawless finances to identifying the next evening of team shenanigans. Outside of work she loves to play hockey with her local team and take part in pretty much any sporty adventure.
Jack’s joined the team on a year long placement, in between his studies at university. He’s now putting his strong interest in the sports marketing industry to the test and has already made himself an important part of the team. It helps that he loves his sport, including his beloved QPR and has a thirst for outside adventure.
