Former UEFA man joins Inter Milan as Chief Communications Officer

Wed 3rd Jun 2015 | Football Club Management

FC Internazionale Milano have announced Robert Faulkner as the Club's new Chief Communications Officer. Faulkner has over 20 years of experience in media and communications both in sport and the corporate world and will join the Nerazzurri in time for their tour of China in July.

"I am delighted to welcome Robert to FC Internazionale as CCO where he will lead and strengthen the communications area during this dynamic period in the club's history," said CEO Michael Bolingbroke. "Robert has a proven track record in the world of communications, both in the football industry and the corporate sector. He will work across all areas of the club's communication strategy, both at home and internationally, and will significantly strengthen our senior Management Team."

Faulkner was previously Head of Communications for UEFA during a 12-year career at European football's governing body. During that time he worked under both Presidents Lennart Johansson and Michel Platini responsible for the communication division, devising corporate strategy, supervising the press office, overseeing media operations and accreditations for all UEFA competitions, and providing strategic advice to UEFA's top management. Acting as UEFA's official spokesman Faulkner was the institution's direct contact for all international media.

After 12 years at UEFA, in 2013 he was appointed senior consultant at international company Leidar Communications, working across the organisation's sporting and corporate divisions.

"It's an honour to be joining such a prestigious club with so much history," stated Faulkner. "I can't wait to put my sports experience and international network to the service of Inter. The communications strategy of a world-famous club like the Nerazzurri is a key element in building a top club, both on and off the pitch. Inter supporters in Italy and all over the world look towards and listen to us and we're ready to tell them our story and lead them into the future."
