RIASA appoints new marketing manager - welcome Matthew Holland.

Speaking to Matthew on his arrival,  here’s what he had to say about joining RIASA: 

“I’m excited to be part of the team here at RIASA. This programme allows student athletes to develop to their maximum potential but also provides a dual recognised degree. The programme is fantastic and everybody who is involved cares about each student athlete and the personal journey they embark on when landing in the UK to join RIASA. I can’t wait to get stuck into my new role and meet the student athletes. I’m looking forward to watching individuals develop and hopefully I can film them scoring some great goals.”

Matthew will be a great asset to RIASA, he will be managing our website, social media channels and content marketing. Matthew will be working closely with the rest of the RIASA team to help our student athletes reach their full potential on and off the field. He will also play a crucial part in helping extend RIASA’s brand awareness in the UK and stateside. 

If you see Matthew around campus or at any of RIASA’s upcoming fixtures, don’t be afraid to say hello to him!
