Bruno Marty, senior vice-president, winter sports at Infront said: “Ingolfur is one of the few and most seasoned experts within the field of winter sport media rights. We are pleased we could exclusively secure his services and unique expertise to further strengthen our media rights portfolio and our market-leading position in global winter sports.”
