A seasoned financial lead within the Entertainment sector, Hunt is the former Finance Director of Collinson Group – a provider of corporate loyalty programs. Further executive experience has seen Hunt lead financial departments for Cinime, Pias Entertainment Group and Rapp Ltd.

In his new remit, Bradley will oversee all financial affairs of the company and its subsidiary units.

Strengthening its governance and legal affairs departments, ARC also confirmed the appointment of Alex Slade, who joins the company from Eleven Sports Network where he formerly served as Head of Legal.

In addition to his executive experience, Slade currently serves as an Independent Non-Executive Director of the British Judo Association and is an Advisory Board member of leading international legal publication LawInSport.
