Robert Tansey is development director, Sky Sports and Chairman, Team Sky.

Mr Tansey has been with Sky since 2004, is a member of the Executive Committee and has held a number of positions during his time with the company, including group brand marketing director – a role in which he had responsibility for all of Sky’s brand strategy, major marketing campaigns and magazine portfolio.

In 2008, he was a key architect of Sky’s partnership with British Cycling, out of which two ambitious goals were set: to get an extra million Britons on their bikes; and to win the Tour de France with a British rider. Both were targets for 2013 and both were met a year early. Mr Tansey now combines his role as chairman of Team Sky with that of development director, Sky Sports.
