"Michael has my complete faith, trust and confidence. He is the perfect person to execute the vision shared by the Moratti family and myself of Inter as a truly global brand. I look forward to working with him as we build a foundation for future success."

Bolingbroke’s focus will include implementing best practices in the industry, increasing the reach and depth of penetration of the Inter brand globally, and improving engagement with fans.
