Former Vodafone marketer to head Iris Sponsorship

Former Vodafone global head of sponsorship and media, Peter Harris, has been appointed managing director of Iris Worldwide’s newly launched sponsorship business. He will head Iris Sponsorship’s worldwide network.

Harris, who left Vodafone in July this year, has previously served on the Formula One Commission and was responsible for leading Vodafone’s global sponsorship strategy for the last seven years.

He oversaw the McLaren, Manchester United, Ferrari and UEFA deals and led the development of Vodafone’s global music and digital media strategy.
