In the fifth entry in our Colossus Q&A series, we speak to our Chief of Staff, George Heap.
Name: George Heap
Job Title: Chief of Staff
How long have you worked for Colossus: Over 4 years.
What does a typical day in your role look like? My main responsibilities revolve around the Colossus B2B network. It can be anything from working with our Operations department on the launch of a new sport, onboarding a new partner, or assisting with marketing strategies on a bespoke basis for the months ahead. I was very close to repeating the LinkedIn cliché of ‘every day is different’. But it is!
What is the one feature or sport you would like Colossus to add? I would love to see us launch Cricket pools when the time is right.
Funniest moment working at Colossus? The team body pump class at the local gym gave me some mental images I’ll never forget.
Proudest moment working at Colossus? I’m always proud to represent the company at external events, often overseas. It’s a huge perk of the job.
If you weren’t a Chief Of Staff what would you be? I grew up with a keen interest in politics. But it gets less appealing by the year.
Favourite Sport? Football
Favourite team? Man Utd
Favourite film? It’s a boring answer but Pulp Fiction. Closely followed by Mike Bassett: England Manager.
Favourite TV series? The UK Office
Top 3 albums of all time? The Smiths – The Queen Is Dead, Green Day – Dookie, Sex Pistols – Never Mind The Bollo#ks
If you had to eat one meal for the rest of your life? Fresh fish by the sea.
Quiet night in or loud night out? I’m nearly 30 now so something in the middle!
