Team Sky's Head of Legal and Commercial Affairs, Hussein Fahmy, provides insight into his dynamic and multifaceted career to date, and offers valuable advice to people looking to break into the sports industry.
Hussein reveals what it means to work in a hybrid role overseeing the legal and commercial aspects of one of Britain’s fastest growing brands, highlights the importance of networking to learn about opportunities in the sports industry, and mentions why an England goal against Egypt back in 1990 gave him particular inspiration.
Team Sky is home to over 25 riders including Olympic medallist Chris Froome, three-time winner of the Tour de France in 2013, 2015 and 2016, and runner-up of the 2016 Vuelta de España - two of cycling’s Grand Tour events.
