MTK Global are delighted to appoint Jack Johnstone as the company’s new Commercial Director.

With a wealth of experience in the Financial Services and Commercial Sports Industry, Jack is ideally placed to further develop MTK Global’s sponsorship portfolio.

Johnstone joins MTK after five years in commercial roles within top level English professional football in the Premier League and The Championship. During his time with Crystal Palace FC, Fulham FC and West Ham United FC, Jack was instrumental in growing sponsorship income for clubs and athletes.

With a strong awareness of commercial trends, Johnstone has established a solid network of famous brands on a global, regional and local level while consistently recording an increase in revenue and multi-media exposure for his clients.

“I am delighted to have joined MTK Global and I cannot wait to begin the work of welcoming a family of partners as they join us in our exciting journey,” commented Johnstone.

“As Commercial Director of MTK Global and MTK MMA, I look forward to maximising our sponsorship revenue across the business focusing on our live-streamed shows, as well as the management of our fighters’ sponsorship,” he added.

CEO Sandra Vaughan is confident that an experienced Director will boost commercial opportunities among its growing stable of skilled fighters.

“We have a fantastic pool of talented, professional fighters with amazing personalities. Their dedication to the sport and their craft is commendable and we want to tap into these values and their potentials to become great ambassadors of various brands,” says Vaughan.

“At the core of what we do is simply taking care of our fighters the best way we can. We go the extra mile in helping these lads achieve their dreams,” she added.

MTK Global is pleased to announce that the management team has brought in another high-profile boxing expert to grow its international platform.

Dr. Mirko Wolf has established himself firmly within the boxing industry over the past years having been an undefeated professional boxer himself before moving into administrating the sport in various positions.

Mirko holds a doctorate degree in sports science and has applied his knowledge in key positions within the international amateur boxing federation. He then ventured into the professional boxing environment having worked with many of the world’s best boxing promoters positioning fighters and ensuring their best career paths.

On joining MTK Global, Mirko says: “I heard a lot of good things about MTK Global but it is when I met the management team of the company and saw their broad understanding of the business as well as the caring environment for each of their fighters that I knew it would be great to work with MTK Global.”

“I am excited to be a part of MTK Global now and there is no doubt on my mind that MTK will keep on growing fast and confirming its position as a true boxer’s home,” he added.

MTK Global’s CEO Sandra Vaughan believes there is no one better to fulfil the role than Dr. Wolf:

“I am very pleased to welcome Mirko to the team,” says Vaughan. “There is an immense joy working with like-minded individuals whose background of boxing both in theory and practice is unquestionable. His years of experience in the industry and his business acumen will propel the growth of the company, exploring strategic opportunities and new markets worldwide.”
